Lenten Programs

Lent offers us an opportunity to slow down, to meander rather than to rush, to find ways to go deeper and not always stay on the surface. A time to observe, pay attention, and then to act – and in so doing provide the space to move from rush to replenish. When we take this practice seriously, we plant its blessings so that they benefit not only us in our lives for this season, but also extend to the world around us.

“The entire material universe speaks of God’s love, God’s boundless affection for us. Soil, water, mountains: everything is, as it were, a caress of God.” Pope Francis has challenged the world community to embrace “our common home” with commitment, tenderness and joy. This inspiring document invites us to immerse our souls in the sacredness of creation, to listen to its cry of pain, and to respond in merciful action and advocacy. Join us as we share our passion and deeper awakening over this urgent call.

How does ego block the Light? What radiance is waiting to burst forth from each of us to illuminate our corner of the universe? The suffering yet luminous world awaits our contributions to wholeness and healing. Together we will explore transformation and transfiguration for our good and the good of the entire world.

During these brief hours, we will give ourselves to awe over God’s tender mercy. Let us shelter a time to rest in God’s prophetic word and awaken to God’s promise. The mystery of the cross will call us to embrace our own brokenness and draw us to God’s presence in the shattered places of our world.
