LENTEN-EASTER FORUM Embracing an Adult Faith
This Sunday between services

Please attend our Lenten-Easter forum this Sunday, part of a special 5-week study titled "Embracing an Adult Faith" by contemporary theologian Marcus Borg.  This is a video led program that lasts about 30 min followed by a short discussion.
 
The series will run through March and on April 9 and 23.

This is an engaging program that speaks to people concerning beliefs in God, Jesus, Salvation, Christian practice, and the Christian community.
Fr. David Lynch _ LOOKING FORWARD TO HOLY WEEK
A message from Fr. David 

I look forward to Holy Week each year as the most celebrated time in our Christian heritage. It is the time that marks the most solemn and joyous parts of the journey of Jesus. I hope that all will carve out time to spend several evenings at Resurrection worshiping in several different liturgies as we culminate our Lenten journey with the Great Vigil of Easter and Easter Day.    Click here to read the entire message from Fr.
