Sunday, March 12
Lenten Evensong
5:00 PM, Church

Evensong is a very tiny fragment of something else: it is a fragment of the worship offered to God by Christian people, at every hour, in every part of the world. When you come to Evensong here, it is as if you were dropping in on a conversation already in progress. Come see what this unique Anglican tradition is all about as the Parish Choir sings Evensong for the third Sunday in Lent.

Limited-Time Lenten Classes
March 1 - April 5

Class One - Clergy Klatch: Lenten Edition
Everyday “Idols” Which Separate Us from God:
A Journey Toward Self-Awareness
As part of The Common Table (March 1 - March 29)

We are separated from the present-day kingdom of heaven by our, “idols”. The kingdom of heaven is not what we do or how we behave, but rather who we are. Through the study of the Enneagram led by Dr. Spence Taylor with our Clergy, discover what keeps you from recognizing God’s presence in the here and now. For more information about the class contact Anne Green Buckner at

Class Two - Men’s Ministry Lenten Bible Study
As part of The Common Table (March 1 - April 5)

Join the Men’s Ministry as we study On the Road to the Cross. This book allows you to experience the Easter season through the eyes of everyday people who witnessed the events like Simon the Leper, Nicodemus, and the Centurion. Open the door to a fresh consideration of Easter and its impact on our lives. Register here to let us know you're joining us by Thursday, February 23. For more information contact Eric Jordan at

Class Three - Fathers and Mothers of the Church
Tuesdays, March 7, 14, 21, 12:15 to 1:15 PM, Thomas Library
