Evening Prayer (Evensong) has often rightly, been described as one of the glories of Anglicanism. The community sings Evening Prayer at 6:00 PM Wednesday through Saturday and 4:00 PM on Sunday. During Lent, there are special hymns and antiphons for the Psalms and the Magnificat (Song of Mary), which reflect the season. Saturday Evening Prayer is especially beautiful. Why not make attending Evening Prayer on Saturday, or one other evening during the week, one of the ways in which you prepare for Easter?
Praying our Common Life: Prayer Book Spirituality and Practice
Saturday, 23 March 2019
The Book of Common Prayeris one of the major gifts of the Anglican tradition to the Body of Christ. It is a valuable resource for common worship, but also for person prayer. This workshop provides an introduction to the Prayer Book, an exploration of its spirituality, and practical guidance for its use. If you are a life-long Episcopalian or a newcomer to the Anglican tradition, this workshop is for you! Join Brothers Jonathan and Sean in exploring how this rich spiritual storehouse might enhance and deepen your own life of prayer, worship and service. For more information or to register online go to SSJE.org/workshop
This year, for Lent, we have four different web-based formation programs available for you to explore:
Each of these is available free of charge online. They are easy to use on your own, or you may want to invite a few friends to participate in them with you. Workbooks, facilitation support, and additional materials are all available. We hope you’ll join us for one of these series this year!
We are delighted to announce that Brother Nicholas made his Life Profession in our Society on Saturday, 23 February.
