Gather Wednesdays + Holden Evening Vespers Schedule
at the Rice Village Campus During Lent

Wednesdays during Lent:

Each Wednesday a soup supper will be offered beginning at 6 pm.  At 6:40 we will pause to learn a particular spiritual practice together.  Then at 6:50 we will move into the Nave for a 30-minute Evening Prayer Liturgy from Holden Village.  We will be focusing on scripture from the Old Testament from the previous Sunday, reflecting on "Embodied Promises."  Take a break from cooking as we share in this Lenten discipline together.  Children are very welcome to join in too!

6 pm - Share a Meal + Journal
6:40 pm  - Embodied Prayer Spiritual Practice (10 min.)
7 pm - Holden Evening Vespers (+ livestream)
