Lenten Soup Suppers Each Wednesday Evening

Lenten Soup Suppers take place every Wednesday until April 9, at 6:15pm in the parish hall, following the 5:30pm Eucharist. We are using a video study based on a dvd featuring Kathleen Norris, titled, “Embracing a Life of Meaning: Discovering What Matters.” You are welcome to come any week – you do not have to have seen the previous videos to jump in, and friends are always welcome!

Prayers for the Season

Fourth Sunday in Lent     lent

Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

March 16th Adult Formation Class to De-Brief Future of Faith Conference

We had a full house at MU’s Tate Hall again Saturday morning, as we listened to Dr. Phyllis Tickle describe the various societal forces and trends that are reshaping expressions of faith and affecting the established Church in the 21st century.  Dr. Tickle provided a wealth of thought-provoking information and analysis.  If you would like to join with some of the many people from Calvary who attended the conference and want to talk about it together, please attend our Adult Education Forum tomorrow morning, Sunday, March 16, from 9:15-10:15 a.m.  We look forward to hearing your thoughts and reflections on this major community event.

Ash Wednesday Services: 8:00 a.m., Noon, and 5:30 p.m.

Collect for Ash Wednesday

Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Ash Wednesday is the first day in the forty day season of Lent.  The Lenten season originally developed as a time of preparation for baptism, when the whole congregation was put in mind of its continual need for repentance and forgiveness, and the gift of God’s Spirit in our lives, if we are to live as faithful followers of Jesus.
Because it is a full forty days long, psychologically Lent provides sufficient space for us to learn to develop new habits, and better ways of thinking and ordering our lives.  During the season, some Christians resolve to give up bad habits, or things that, while they may not hurt, don’t help either.  Other Christians prefer to take on new disciplines, such as making a time for daily prayer.  Over the years at Calvary, the clergy have often urged parishioners to make a point of attending the mid-week service as an added spiritual activity, and also to stay if they can for the soup supper–a time of fellowship and learning.  This year’s Wednesday evening soup suppers will feature a video discussion program, and promise to be interesting.  Come join us if you are able!

Special Weather Statement

 

Dear Friends of Calvary:

As of 7:10 a.m., we appear to have missed the brunt of the storm.

We will be holding both services as normally scheduled today, Sunday, March 2nd.

Please use your discretion, however, and put considerations of safety first, in deciding whether you are able to make it to worship this morning. 

Faithfully,

Fr. Knute
