Lenten Study Group
The season of Lent is a time for deepening faith, as we are called to be disciples of Jesus in our daily living. This Lent, you are invited to join a virtual group study, using Walter Brueggemann's devotional book "A Way Other Than Our Own: Devotions for Lent".

"Brueggemann's thought-provoking reflections for the season of Lent invite us to consider the challenging, beautiful life that comes with walking the way of grace."

We will meet online (Zoom) each Monday evening February 22, March 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29 @ 6:00 p.m.

Click here to purchase the book (click here instead if you've already signed up for Amazon Smile, and St. Mary's will receive a portion of the proceeds).

We'd love to hear from you.

Liturgy Nerds | Wednesday's @ 6:30 p.m.
This group traditionally met at a local pub each Wednesday after Evening Prayer for drinks and discussion.
