Intimacy With Christ
Lenten Quiet Morning with Father Peter
Saturday, March 11 from 9:00AM-12:00PM
Come for a bit of Deep quiet, a time to reconnect with your Lord in the depths of your being and in the community of your fellow believers. The morning will include "maranatha" quietude, a guided meditation, and sharing before a closing Holy Eucharist.
The Way (Stations) of the Cross
Fridays in Lent beginning March 3
You are invited to come to St. Mark’s any time on Fridays to pray the Stations of the Cross in the Chapel. In many traditions, the Fridays of Lent are a time of particular devotion in remembrance of Christ’s crucifixion. We will leave copies of the The Way (Stations) of the Cross in the back of the chapel and we encourage you to come in for a period of quiet devotion and to read/pray the Stations.
The Stations of the Cross arose out of the practice of pilgrims going to Jerusalem for Good Friday to walk in Jesus’ footsteps on the Via Dolorosa (way of the grief), stopping at particular ‘stations’ for prayer until one arrives at the place of his crucifixion and burial. In the Middle Ages, the Dominicans spread this practice to those who could not go to Jerusalem but still wanted to make the pilgrimage in their prayers. The Stations of the Cross is a mainstay of the Roman Catholic Church and an important element of Anglo-Catholic Lenten devotional practice.
