This is the fifth week of Great Lent, the time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving that will take us to Pascha, the celebration of the Lord's resurrection on April 8. Fr. Ted encourages everyone to come to confession early in Lent. Times for confession are listed in the weekly calendar.

The Wednesday Morning Discussion Group will be meeting this Wednesday at 11 AM. Throughout Great Lent we will be discussing the Epistle and Gospel readings for the Saturdays and Sundays of Great Lent. Please join us to consider these essential Scripture lessons and to share what value these readings have had in your spiritual life. This Wednesday, March 14, we will discuss the readings for the fifth weekend of Great Lent: we will discuss the readings for the fifth weekend of Great Lent: Hebrews 9:24-28, Mark 8:27-31 and Hebrews 2:11-18, Luke 1:24-38.. If you want to add to your Lenten discipline this year, please join our discussion.
