Sunday, February 25, 5:00 pm: This beautiful service of prayers, psalms, readings, and song is one of the oldest in the Anglican tradition. Its exquisite music and gentle cadence help us to end the day in peace and hope. In our second evensong service of the year, our choir will sing the music of Herbert Howells. February 23 marks the 35th year since Howells passed from this Earth, leaving us a remarkable corpus of sacred music. To attend, enter the church by its front door on Massachusetts Avenue.
Wednesday, February 21, 7:15 – 8:15 pm: Our Lenten Adult Forum series introduces the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Tradition of Christianity. In our first meeting, Reed Carlson will lead a discussion on the creeds of the Church. Do creeds still have a place in a world where Christianity is no longer dominant, where individuals increasingly make their own faith decisions, and where so many different cultures live side by side? Why do we hold onto creeds when their language is so often odd and antiquated? Do I have to agree with every line of the creed? The forum is preceded by a simple meal at 7:00. All are welcome! To enter, please ring the doorbell at 13 Sellers Street.
Saturday, February 24, 2:30 – 7:00 pm: CommonCare is Saint Peter’s meals ministry, a community meal open to all. Join us to help cook the dinner, serve, or clean up, or on Friday night to help cook the main dish. See our video of CommonCare in action and the complete work schedule. To volunteer, please send an email to CommonCare@saintpeterscambridge.org.
Sunday February 25 and March 11, 12:15 – 1:00 pm: Saint Peter’s invites you to two forums of a contemplative nature that may deepen your your spiritual engagement with the Lenten season of self-reflection. Each will involve praying a litany that includes moments of silence, song, and prayer; a reading; and a question to contemplate. The Feb. 25 forum, “The Saints Above,” will be centered on the Litany of the Saints. The Mar. 11 forum, “The Church Below,” will be centered on a litany for the church’s mission. Both sessions will be led by Minister of Music Paul Keene and Christian Formation Associate the Rev. Reed Carlson.
