Come and join clergy and laity from across the Diocese as we engage in a day of reflection with Fleming Rutledge. Fleming is one of the best known and respected preachers in the Episcopal church; one of the first women ordained to the priesthood; and a prolific writer and respected thinker. It is a great honor for us to be able to host her.

“Hope in Dark Places” is a day of teaching, reflection and workshops as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter. It is an opportunity for our Diocese to set aside time at the beginning of Lent to think about the message of the cross in the 21st century and prepare for the preaching, devotional and formational work of Holy Week.

The Lenten Day is sponsored by the Philadelphia Theological Institute.

Workshops —
Especially for Preachers
Fleming will lead two workshops entitled ‘The Crucifixion of Christ in Preaching and in Christian Living’.

Especially for Children’s Ministry leaders
Emily Given, writer of ‘Building Faith, Block by Block’ – will be leading two workshops on ‘Engaging Children’s Imagination in Holy Week and Easter’. This will be a great opportunity to gather together lay volunteers who work with children and provide some high quality training and more than a few ideas of how to successfully lead children’s formation.

For everyone who prays
Revd Jarret Kerbel, Rector of St Martin-in-the-Fields, Chestnut Hill, will lead two workshops: ‘You Gotta Learn How to Die: Praying at the Foot of the Cross’.
