“Listen my child, to your Master’s precepts, and attend to them with the ear of your heart.” –The Rule of St. Benedict, Prologue
Are you hoping to deepen your prayer-life this Lenten season? Please join us for this Lectio Divina Series. Lectio Divina is an ancient contemplative art–a slow, contemplative praying of the Scriptures–once practiced by all Christians. The first session will begin with a basic introduction, which will include the format, movement, and resources for Lectio Divina, and following sessions will take us into the experience of Lectio through poetry, art, and journaling. While the first session will be essential to attend, ensuring each participant has an understanding of the practice, you are encouraged to register even if you are unable to make all of the subsequent sessions.
Triduum: A Call to Be What You Celebrate
The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum–from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one, unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord, at the Easter Vigil. Sr. Cecilia Olson, OSB will help us delve more deeply into reflection upon the history of these Three Great Days, and what it means to participate and join ourselves in its Mystery.
Please register by February 18. Once your registration is completed, you should receive a confirmation email within 1-2 business days. Zoom meeting links, along with any additional details and materials S. Micaela would like you to have, will be emailed to you the day prior to each session.  We look forward to seeing you online.
As a free-will offering, no payment is required, but we are grateful for any amount contributed, if you are able. Click here if you would like to contribute now.
