BIBLE SAFARI TODAY, MARCH 25, 2018, 9:25 AM-10:15 AM

ALTAR OF REPOSE—THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 2018
“Can you not pray with me one hour?”  This was our Lord’s plea to his disciples on the night of His betrayal and pending His crucifixion on Good Friday.  Our Lord poses this question to us as well.  May we assent to our Lord’s cry for us to pray with Him.  Like Simon of Cyrene who bore our Lord’s cross on our Lord’s march to Calvary, what for Simon had begun as a compulsory task became a delight and joy.  Please come and spend an hour before the Altar of Repose in silence and in quiet reflection spending time with Our Lord.  In that time with Him, you will receive His peace which passes all understanding in the midst of your own trials.

ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASS WILL MEET SATURDAY, APRIL 14TH, at 4:00 PM-5:00 PM
