Were you there?
Fridays in Lent, beginning on February 23, 2018
Lenten Dinner and Devotions for the Whole Family
Dinner: 6:30 in the Parish Hall
We begin with supper, cooked and served by one our ministry teams, with a menu that all ages will enjoy. The cost is $5.00 per person and $10.00 for a family. At 7:30 p.m., adults head to the church for the Stations of the Cross and children go to the undercroft for the evening’s program.
Devotions: 7:30 in the Church and Undercroft
Adults and youth gather in the church for Stations of the Cross, followed by a meditation by a guest speaker and sung Compline. The great spiritual asks the loaded question, “Were you there when they crucified my Lord?” with the implied answer, “Yes.” The people and personalities who are mentioned at the time of Jesus’ passion are not so different from us. This year’s schedule of speakers will help us get to know Pontius Pilate, the Virgin Mary, Simon of Cyrene, John the Disciple, and Joseph of Arimathea—on the way to getting to know ourselves and the Lord who loves us from the cross. Children from Kindergarten through 5th grade will meet in the Undercroft (church basement) for their own Lenten “Were you there?” series, which will combine Bible stories and crafts.
This year’s speakers include:
- February 23: Fr. Casey Shobe, Rector of Transfiguration, Dallas
- March 2: Fr. Thomas Kincaid, Vicar of Incarnation, Dallas
- March 9: Fr. Ryan Pollock, Curate at St. Matthew’s Cathedral
- March 16: Fr. Perry Mullins, Rector of St. Peter’s, McKinney
- March 23: Fr. Bob Corley, Rector of St. Mark’s, Irving
Nursery is available for children 5 years and younger.
