Planning to come to Spring Training on Saturday, April 29? Don’t forget to register! Join Bishop Steve Lane and Episcopalians from across Maine for 20 workshops on spiritual growth, formation, outreach, and leadership.
+Rev Lael Sorensen will continue conducting morning prayer at 7 a.m. in the Choir Stalls in the Sanctuary every Tuesday. Participants are encouraged to then continue the practice on their own time throughout the week. This reflective prayer service offers a meaningful focus for the day and the upcoming week. Use of daily prayers to mark the times of the day has been a traditional practice in Judaism and Christianity. The monastic form includes matins (at midnight or cockcrow), prime (the first hour), terce (the third hour), sext (the sixth hour); none (the ninth hour), and compline (bedtime). After the Reformation, in the Anglican (Episcopal) tradition, the eight monastic offices were reduced to congregational Morning and Evening Prayer.
