Lenten Devotional Study at St. Saviour’s

Lenten Devotional Study – Back by Popular Demand! After very positive response to our reading and discussion of Brother Albert Holtz’s devotional book From Holidays to Holy Days, this Lent we will be reading and discussing his book, Pilgrim Road. For these Lenten reflections, Brother Albert breaks out of downtown Newark to write daily on his sabbatical travel throughout the world. The meditations begin with Ash Wednesday, and our study will begin the First Sunday of Lent, February 14 following the 10 am service. The book is $16 from Muffet or Michele, or on Amazon.

Meditation at St. John’s in Southwest Harbor

Learn to meditate in Lent! Please join us for a contemplative Lenten series Breathing in the Spirit on Thursdays from 3:30-4:30 at St. John’s Church, 315 Main Street in Southwest Harbor. We will learn about and practice breathing, the subtlest form of body work, and the prayer of the heart; how the two intertwine to carry us deeper into communion with God, and both of which are ancient Christian practices and traditions. All are invited, starting February 11th until March 17th led by Mother Kathleen. Be waiting and by calm you shall be saved, in quiet and in trust your strength lies. Isaiah 30:15.

Stolen Tiffany Lily Window discussion at Maine Sea Coast Mission

Much has changed since our Tiffany Easter Lily window was stolen in the Summer of 1988. A group from St. Saviour’s headed by Katherine Whitney will be discussing some of those changes and how we hope to use them to attempt to recover our window at Coffee’s On at the Maine Seacoast Missionary Society on West Street, Tuesday the 16th of February. Coffee’s On starts at 9:30 and the discussion about the window will begin at 11:00.
