Join us in celebrating a quiet, meditative Lent at any or all of the following opportunities:
Lenten Study: As we have for the past several years, St. Saviour’s will be offering a Book Study on Sundays in Lent, beginning March 5 at 11:30 in the Rectory Common Library. Our book this year is The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri J. M. Nouwen. The author begins from his encounter with the Rembrandt painting of the same name in the Hermitage Museum, then guides the reader through meditations on each of the characters in the parable – both sons and the father – and how we can read ourselves into the story. Muffet has copies of the book and the study guide available for $10. You can also download the study guide at http://henrinouwen.org/resources/discussion-guides/

Katharine Whitney with the assistance of Eva Davis and Lee Garrett spoke to “Coffee’s On” and the Acadia Senior College at the Maine Seacoast Mission on Tuesday, February 16th, about our stolen Tiffany Easter Lily Window, and some of the technological improvements in the pursuit of stolen fine arts, which give rise to a cautious optimism, that we may be closer to the possible recovery of our window than at any point since it was stolen 28 years ago.
