Lenten Vespers — Living Light in Lent

Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. in the nave

Weekly Vespers services on Wednesday nights support our Lenten discipline as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter. We walk with the medieval mystic Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179 CE), singing her words, learning of her faith, hearing her music and meditating on her art. Even more, silence offers worshipers time to express one’s own prayers by painting, or lighting candles and quiet meditation.
The services include incense. For respiratory sensitivity the best places are near the organ on the west side (bell tower). After worship, individual healing blessing and laying on of hands is offered near the organ in the nave.
