Lenten Sunday Afternoons
2 pm
3:30 pm
at St. Matthew's Anglican Church, 126 Plains Road East
The Churches on Plains Road (West Plains United, East Plains United, St. Matthew's Anglican), plus Holy Cross Lutheran Church on Lakeshore Road, are offering an Ecumenical Lenten Series in 2020. The core idea is to offer a “spiritual practice” session each Sunday afternoon followed by Holden Evening Prayer (a short, reflective sung service led by our musicians and singers).

The spiritual practice session would begin at 2:00pm in the Fireside Room, and Evening Prayer would start at 3:30pm in the Sanctuary with a short refreshment break between.

Learn a new Spiritual Practice (2:00pm) with our clergy and lay leaders.
Join in Holden Evening Prayer (3:30pm) with our musicians and singers.
Come for One, Some or All!
