An email will be sent the morning of March 27 with links to the meditative reflections.

Women of the Bible is an indispensable guide to the customs, ideas, and aspirations of the women whose stories have shaped civilizations and spanned continents. Some highlights include: Insights into the lives of women in biblical times, profiles of leading women in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament, and details of fascinating archaeological finds.

Please join us for a special four-week miniseries with Dr. Jean-Pierre Isbouts about his National Geographic publication, Women of the Bible. Visit our website to access the study videos.

Stations of the Cross
We invite you to make your own pilgrimage along the Via Dolorosa, or “Way of Sorrows,” during Lent. The Stations of the Cross depict the final hours (or Passion) of Jesus and the devotion commemorating the Passion. You are invited to “walk the stations” online, guided by St. Martin’s Clergy Members, making your own spiritual pilgrimage of prayer, while meditating upon the chief scenes of Christ’s sufferings and death.
