Lenten Quiet Day - This Saturday

Please join us on March 24th (9:30 am - 3 pm) for a quiet retreat.

The day of quiet begins at 9:30 am with Holy Communion. We will then hear a series of short reflections by Fr. Edward Rix (Interim Rector of All Saints, Wynnewood and Vice-President of the Prayer Book Society). In-between the reflections we will observe periods of silence (for quiet reading, prayer, etc.). Fr. Rix's subject will be "Welcome Dear Feast of Lent: Praying the Lenten Pilgrimage with George Herbert."

Please bring a bag lunch.
