For five Wednesdays in Lent: February 21st and 28th, and March 7th, 14th, and 21st.  We will gather to share reflections on encountering Jesus in the Gospel of John.  We will have two opportunities to gather each week. The first will be from 12:00 to 1:30 pm at Christ Church, Rochdale.  This will be a brown bag luncheon and will include Noonday Prayer.  The second will be from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at Grace Church, Oxford. We will take turns bringing soup and bread, and will end our time together with Compline.

There are journals with daily verses and reflection published by the Society of St. John the Evangelist and provided by the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts.  Thank you, Bishop Doug!  Copies will be available in the church on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning Saturday, February 10th.  You can also download a copy here.   If you are interested in participating in a private FaceBook group, too, please email Rev. Paula.


Interested in sharing favorite prayers with your friends at Grace Church?  Curious if "mixing it up a bit" in your prayer life will deepen your understanding of relationship God?  Then join us as we share favorite prayers.  It's easy to do.  Simply email Rev. Paula or drop your favorite prayer in the offering plate.  She'll include the prayers in the weekly update, "Greetings from Grace," and will print some copies to pick up at the back of the church.
