Holden Evening Prayer Sunday evenings in Lent, 5:00p.m., Nave Holden Evening Prayer was written in the mid 1980’s by Marty Haugen while serving as the musician-in-residence at Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center in the North Cascade Mountains of Washington State, called by some the Taize’ of the U.S. This contemplative setting of vespers follows the traditional form of the evening office while using contemporary and expansive language. Prayers, chant, hymns, readings and silence contribute to the reflectiveness of this evening liturgy. It is a liturgy appropriate for all sorts and conditions of spiritual seekers and pilgrims. This liturgy will be offered at 5:00 p.m. in the Nave beginning Sunday, February 22 and running through Sunday, March 22. For further information contact Todd Donatelli at the Cathedral.

A Workshop on The Sacramental Rite of Reconciliation (Confession) Saturday, February, 28, 9:00 – 11:00 a.m., Owen Library. The Rite of Reconciliation is a means for us to experience in a significant way God’s reconciliation. It is not about beating our breasts and putting on sackcloth but about experiencing the deep freedom of forgiveness. It is about experiencing that forgiveness directly and immediately. In his book, Reconciliation: Preparing for Confession in the Episcopal Church, Martin Smith suggests the following about this rite: “Repentance is the response we make as we meet Christ in the place where we have been brought to a halt, and sense his insistence that we reorient ourselves towards God. Why a halting place? Guilt about the past felt as a burden too heavy to bear; having emerged from a difficult stretch of life, one aspect of which can involve taking responsibility for the sins committed during the struggle; transition from one stage of life to another, to make the passage, we need to make a closure. God can call us to repentance in an endless variety of ways.” As the clergy of All Souls will be offering this rite during the season of Lent on Wednesdays from 4:30 to 5:30 (please contact the clergy direct via phone or email to schedule a time), this workshop will provide background about the rite along with suggestions for personal examination before making a confession. Led by Todd Donatelli. Please register for this workshop by calling the church office, 274-2681.

Our men also need sneakers and boots, belts, long- and short-sleeved T-shirts, and clothing for job interviews: suits, long-sleeved shirts, ties. Our women only need jackets, casual dresses, sneakers, socks, and underwear. As always we urgently need blankets and sleeping bags. Thanks so much for your generosity.
