SCRIPTURAL LECTURE/DISCUSSION IN PREPARATION FOR GREAT LENT – In an effort to better enable us to enter into the spirit of Great Lent, the gospel of the Publican and the Pharisee will be the topic of a lecture/discussion immediately before Vespers on Saturday, 23 February at 5:00 pm in the parish hall. The lecture/reflection will explore the themes of prayer (both the “how” and the “why”), one’s relationship with God and one’s neighbor, as well as the proper interior disposition necessary. Should there be sufficient interest, similar lectures/discussions/prayer may be offered on each of the following Saturdays of Great Lent at 5:00 pm, immediately preceding Saturday evening Vespers. Lecture will be conducted by Steven McGuigan.
