The Forum

Lenten Series 2017


Sundays, 9:30-10:20 a.m. at The Grand, next door to the church
Contact: The Rev. Mary Luck Stanley (mary@osp1692.org)


You are invited to come to one or all of our Forums during the great forty days of Lent, as we take time to explore some of the primary aspects of our faith as Christians and as Episcopalians. Those who are preparing to be confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church when the bishop visits on May 7th are especially invited to join us. Long time members who want to learn more about the foundations of our faith will enjoy these forums as well.
