Adult Forum (Lent Series)
March 18 at 10:15am

Every year during the 7:30 PM Good Friday liturgy, the St. Paul’s Adult Choir sings a musical setting of the events that lead up to Jesus’ death. Such settings, also called Passions, have existed for hundreds of years, and include some of the best-known and most-loved music of all time. Assistant Rector Peter Thompson looks at the history of Passions, from the original medieval chant and its more elaborate Renaissance adaptations to the famous St. Matthew and St. John Passions of Johann Sebastian Bach and the Broadway passions of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stephen Schwartz, chronicling how views of Jesus’ Passion have shifted over time and depended on context.

No forum on Sunday, March 25 (Palm Sunday) or Sunday, April 1 (Easter Sunday).

Hunger: Sacred Conversations about Our Bodies 

Lenten Series continues on March 13 at 7:00pm

*Please note the Hunger Series will be taking place on Tuesday, March 13*
Every Lent, we remember that Jesus was hungry. We recall how Jesus fasted in the wilderness for forty days, painfully aware of his body’s need for care and sustenance. Like Jesus, we, too, have bodies; we, too, get hungry (sometimes, for food; often, for something else); we, too experience pain because of our hunger. Read more here …
Each Tuesday evening starts with an optional service of Holy Eucharist at 6:30 PM in the Lady Chapel. A talk and facilitated conversation follows at 7:00 PM in the Undercroft (Parish Hall), directly below the sanctuary of the church. A light dinner is served.

Celtic Eucharist 

Thursdays at 6:00 pm

Celebrated each Thursday at 6 p.m., this service is a meditative worship experience which is steeped in tradition and lasts about half an hour. This service invites you to enter into a place of rest, prayer and reflection. Most of the prayers and hymns come from a variety of sources including Iona and Northumbria liturgies and focus on the beauty of God’s creation. This service is intended to be inclusive and welcoming of all people.
