The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on February 17th with a live-streamed celebration of the Holy Eucharist with the Imposition of Ashes at 12:30 pm. We invite you to worship with us as a way to begin your Lenten pilgrimage. SSJE.org/chapel


Lent is a pilgrimage that take us on a journey in the direction of an abundant life as promised by Jesus. The journey often reveals things that are weighing us down and are unnecessary; things we need to put lay aside in order to travel comfortably and efficiently.  This picture, taken in a Wadi in the Palestinian desert near Mar Saba Monastery, speaks to a source of life in a harsh landscape.  Jesus said: ‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to me, and let the one who believes in me drink. As the scripture has said, “Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” ’ John 7:37-38

    This is beautiful. I’m laying aside my unnecessary burdens and drinking from the living waters of Christ.
