Transcript of Video:

Love is one of the reasons for our existence, but in order to love, I think we need to start with the truth that is found in the first letter of John: we love because God first loved us. Our love is a response to God’s great love, and we respond to that love with gratitude. Love is something we receive as a gift from God and it should bubble up and cause us then to respond to other people and whatever is going on with that sense of the love of God. That life that we have is, for each of us, our own gift from God, which we are giving to God as a response to his love.

-Br. David Allen

Glory and Gumbo

The St. James Center for Spiritual Formation announces a wonderful speaking series to be presented during the ECW Friday Lenten Gumbo lunches. Six wonderful preachers from various religious traditions are scheduled to speak on successive Fridays, in the church, from 12:05 to 12:30 p.m., so attendees may enjoy gumbo then the speaker, or the speaker, then gumbo in Bishops Hall! More about Glory and Gumbo, here.


In the Footsteps of St. Patrick

Join us on a journey back in time to visit places made sacred with the worship and ministry of St. Patrick and the early Celtic saints. On the first part of our pilgrimage, we’ll visit the famous high crosses at Monasterboice, say prayers in churches founded by St. Patrick in Downpatrick and Armagh, and walk the ancient historic sites at the Hill of Slane, the Hill of Tara, Navan Fort, and Newgrange.
