The Praying Family, Evening Prayers for individuals and families, will be held Sundays through Fridays from 7-7:20PM. This online gathering, hosted by The Abbey, will feature a song, prayers, a brief scripture reading, and directions on how to reflect and pray at home briefly during the gathering. This prayer meeting is designed for people of all ages, but particularly to include children, whom Jesus doesn’t want to prevent from coming to Him these days. This daily liturgy will provide a gentle and reassuring practice for quieting down in the evening.

May God bless you as you reach out to Him, and for Him, in these days.
The Easter Day of Reflection, will be held in-person or online on Saturday May 9th from 10AM-4PM, or any portion thereof. Featuring morning and noonday prayer gatherings, scripture readings, and directions on how to reflect in quiet in your home, the theme will focus on the 40 days Jesus spent among us, a very appropriate focus for the 40 or so days we have already spent in our kind of Lenten wilderness, as well as the upcoming 40 days as we, like the disciples, adjust to a new kind of “normal”. We’ll gather at 10AM for prayer, Scripture, and a reflection, followed by a time of quiet for engaging God; we’ll gather again at Noon for prayer, break for lunch at home or The Abbey, then reconvene at 1:30 for Scripture, and a second reflection, followed by quiet; and then regather at 3:30 with a time to hear from one another about how God met us, and to pray for one another. If we have been given the “all clear” for social interactions, you may register to join us at The Abbey by emailing Fr. Len Cowan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
