Lenten Bible Study
For our Lenten Study, Holy Cross will continue to explore The Transforming Literature of the Bible. For five Wednesdays we will look at the kings and prophets of the Old Testament.  Learn about Saul, David, Solomon, and the rise and fall of the United Kingdom of Israel.  Following the division of the kingdom came the years of the great Hebrew prophets.  We will examine the compelling imagery and powerful themes in Amos, Hosea, Jeremiah, First Isaiah, and Second Isaiah.  The Bible Study will meet from 7 - 8:30 each week. The course book is $35, and will also be used for a three-week study in Easter, and for our study of the Christian testament beginning next fall. Email Megan Hoskins to order a book.

Mar. 13-Apr.10

Compline Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. 
Compline is a service to close the day, an opportunity to give thanks for the joys and graces experienced, a chance to confess the sins committed throughout the day, and the perfect moment to close the day. Seminarian Brandon McGinnis leads this brief, quiet service each Wednesday in Lent.
