Stations of the Cross with the Order of Malta Prison Ministry

February 23, 6:00 pm, McKenna Hall

The Way of the Cross the Pope Francis officiated over in St. Peter’s Square on Good Friday in 2020 offered scripture readings paired with meditations prepared by chaplains from an Italian prison in Padua. During the height of Covid, Order of Malta worked to transform the devotion published by the Vatican into a Way of the Cross that would be relevant for inmates. Way of the Cross is an excellent way to pray as a community for those in prison and can also develop greater awareness among our parish about the spiritual needs of those in prison and those who love and work with them. RSVP at this link.

"Women of the Exodus" with Dr. Jaime Waters

March 3, 3:00 pm, Trinity Hall

Hosted by Women Who Stay; Reception to follow

In the story of the Exodus, we encounter God's concern for people who are oppressed, as God sees and hears the struggles of the Israelites and calls Moses to lead them out of Egypt. The dramatic accounts of the Exodus highlight Moses' role as liberator and lawgiver. But, there are several women in the traditions surrounding the Exodus who are crucial to the narrative and who are sometimes overlooked. This presentation will focus on the women who facilitate, intervene, lead, and inspire the Israelite community. It will consider how these women serve as important models for all of us today, particularly for responding to injustice and oppression. RSVP at this link.
