Prayer as a Way of Life continues Tuesday, February 27th

Join us for a Lenten journey into what Jesus calls “your secret room,” building individual prayer practices. The 6-week series will be a blend of lectures, small group discussion, and workshopping.

This week: The Daily Office. We open the BCP (on a weekday) and learn the joys of the Lectionaries and Morning, Noonday, and Evening Prayer (with a nice Compline finish).

If you’re interested in a practical approach to mindfulness and deepening your conversation with God, we think you’ll enjoy this experience.

Classes meet each Tuesday in Lent from 6:00 - 7:30 pm. Childcare is available for each session.

Summer is right around the corner, and it’s not too late to sign your child up for an experience like no other at Louisiana’s premier Episcopal summer camp!

Selected as one of “America’s Best Summer Camps 2023” by Newsweek, Camp Hardtner isn’t just about games; it’s about making memories, finding joy, and discovering new things about yourself.

Campers will find an experience that will stick with them all year long and possibly for life. An experience of relationship, community, belonging, and self-worth–all built upon the foundation that God’s love surrounds us and transforms our lives.
