Ash Wednesday 2016

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

The season opening today is a powerful one for many of us.  It is in some sense an invitation to inventory our living, particularly to review how what we say we believe impacts how we actually live. Here at Mercer School we will be praying for you throughout the season that this Lent is a transformative moment in your growing into Christ.

Here on our website, as we have done for the past few years, there rests a page of resources for the living and praying of the season.  You can find it by clicking on the Resources tab at the top of our homepage and then on Lent.  Or you can go directly to the lenten resources page here -http://www.mercerschool.org/lent.php

There are already several online resources introduced there.  More will be added to enrich the page and your lenten life throughout the season.

Among those there now is the Society of Saint John the Evangelist series beginning today on Growing a Rule of Life.  Featuring a daily email, video input, and the possibility to actively participate in a group experience, this sharing of the monastic wisdom of the Cowley Fathers could be a wonderful way to live Lent this year.  You are invited to participate in a group doing the series through Mercer School.  You can access the resources to sign up and explore directly at http://ssje.org/  We will be sharing resources along the way on the Mercer School Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/George-Mercer-Jr-School-of-Theology-383700598374289/  We also intend to gather online live regularly throughout the season to discuss our Growing a Rule of Life together.  If you would like to receive notification of those sessions, email to deanofmercer@gmail.com with the subject line, "Growing a Rule of Life."

Renewed blessings to all as the season of Lent begins today,

John McGinty+
