Ora et Labora Lenten series

This Lent we will be exploring ways to nurture and deepen our lives using the template of Benedictine rule. The 6th century founder of the monastery at Monte Cassino, Benedict created a rule for his monks that prescribed a balance of prayer and study, time spent alone and time spent with others. In our time of overwork and isolation, of too much time spent in our own heads and too little understanding, Benedict’s rule can be a powerful guide to deeper knowing. Come for a series of thought-provoking ideas and spirit-settling practice as we engage a wiser way this season. Each Wednesday evening will begin with Evening Prayer at 6:00 pm, continue with a simple soup supper at 6:30 and program and practice at 7:00 pm, and conclude by 8:00 pm. Come for what you are able to come for, and refresh your soul.
