On the Web–Daily Lenten Study began Feb. 18 –the Brothers of the Society of St John the Evangelist invite us to recapture time as a gift and discover how to experience the joy of the present moment. This week is a reflection on Work. 

Noonday Prayer in the Parish House and Evening Prayer in the church at 7PM will take place every Wednesday during the season of Lent.
