Lent - A Journey of the Heart

Do not fear, for I am with you, Do not be afraid, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.                               Isaiah 41:10

The resources and links listed below are designed to enrich your life and deepen your spirituality and connection to God, even in the most challenging of times.  As Bishop Michael Curry says, we are all in this together.  Let us join our prayers and our thoughts and support each other through the weeks ahead.

Worship

  • Public Worship Services are temporarily suspended.  Under the Recent Sermon section on the Home Page is a link to the online Worship Service for the week.  There is also a link to the weekly Bulletin.
  • Bishop Knisely and our Rhode Island Episcopal Diocese have created a Worship from Home page - a wonderful list of links to services and prayers that will comfort and sustain us all in uncertain times.
  • Listen to a beautiful Choral Evensong from England and soothe your soul.

Well-Being

  • Follow CDC guidelines during this special time.  WASH YOUR HANDS!  Don't touch your face.  Sanitize heavily used objects. Stay home if you are sick. 
  • Take care of yourself.  Exercise, get outdoors, go for a walk, work on your garden.
  • Pray or meditate regularly.

Join our Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, as he offers a weekly meditation, Habits of Grace.

A Prayer for Doctors, Nurses and Caregivers 
Sanctify, O Lord, those whom you have called to the study and practice of the arts of healing, and to the prevention of disease and pain. Strengthen them by your life-giving Spirit, that by their ministries the health of the community may be promoted and your creation glorified; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
