Let us engage together in praying Luther’s Small Catechism for this year’s Lenten devotions. In the 500th anniversary year of the Reformation we will re-learn and deepen many aspects of our Lutheran heritage.
Week of Lent 4
Taizé Worship will be called Contemplative Mass. More styles of music and prayer will be added to beloved Taizé chants to offer a yet more meditative worship experience, all so to deepen faith and empower personal lives for peace-making. We hope to reach more people with God’s gentle grace by this Saturday worship experience.
Throughout Lent we will offer a Rite of Healing for all who desire during the Sunday services. The Rite of Healing and Annointing is an ancient rite of the church, and includes prayers for healing and anointing with oil. Stations for healing prayers will be available in the nave after communing.
