Lenten Retreat: Saturday, March 16 8:30-11:30am
Enter into the mystery of Jesus’s last days and imagine what you’d see and hear if you were there.
We invite you to take part in a special Lenten Retreat on Saturday, March 16. We will gather in the Parish Hall for breakfast and learn about the history of the Stations of the Cross (a series of 14 images and prayers that mark the last hours of Jesus’s life).
The rest of the morning will be spent in small groups or as individuals who will create something for our Stations of the Cross Walk on Good Friday, March 29. Pick the Station that means the most to you and show us how you feel. Use your imagination as you create a unique object or item; it can be a craft, poetry, painting, or writing prayers for St. John’s. We’ll provide supplies – paint, pictures, paper, etc. – and you will get the chance to show what the Station you choose means to you.
This is a whole church project partnered with Sunday School and Youth Group. This is a great way to connect and share what the season of Lent means to you, as well as learn about our individual faith journeys and our journey as a church.We hope to see you there!
Date: Saturday, March 16
Time: 8:30 am – 11:30 am
If you don’t finish your piece during the retreat you can take it home to finish. If you can’t make it to the retreat – don’t let that stop you! Create something at home and bring it to the office by Thursday, March 28th. Let your imagination soar!
