Lenten Dinner Programs

Lent is 40 days on the Christian calendar that signifies the period of time to be set aside for meditation and penitence. It begins on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 18th) and ends on Easter (Apr. 5th). St. John's will have a variety of activities for Lenten meditation and reflection.

As in the past we will have Lenten Dinners followed by a program presentation. This year, "Sounds of Passion" will be a theme of our programs. Bible scripture offers descriptive passages of the nine sounds that Jesus and his followers would have heard on the way to the Cross. We will reflect on those sounds and the story for the meaning His life and sacrifice gives to us.

Mark your calendars for 6:30pm on February 25th, March 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th.
