Bulletin (to read):

For those of you who do not have a Book of Common Prayer at home, this is a terrific audio resource for praying the Daily Office. 

A Morning at the Office by Forward Movement:  Forward Movement also has other daily podcasts available for those who may just want a shorter prayer to listen to.

For Sunday worship we recommend livestreaming the National Cathedral liturgy at   (  

Quiet Retreat:
This coming Saturday there will be an opportunity to make a Quiet Retreat AT HOME. If you would like to join this remote retreat email Mother Melissa. Mother Melissa will lead you in three meditations prepared by our own parishioners. 

Book Study:
 Who would have guessed that we picked such a timely book for Lent? Margaret Guenther's book, At Home in the World, a rule of life for the rest of us.  For those who were reading the book, please use the questions in the book to ponder on your own.  I invite anyone to submit those thoughts to Mother Melissa in writing and we can share them in some creative way amongst those who are reading the book.
