St. Paul's Lenten Reflections 2016

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, this year's Lenten reflections from St. Paul's are posted daily here.

The meditations were written by the members and friends of our parish. They honor our mutual commitment to lifelong spiritual formation. Inspired by the Scripture readings each day, every offering is original and reflects the thoughts, interpretations, and feelings of the author.

We hope that these meditations will help guide your journey through the Holy Season of Lent. May our lives be enriched as we share our understandings in these offerings.


Ave Maria Choral Evensong

Sunday, February 28 at 3:30 p.m.


Evensong in Lent? But of course! On Sunday, February 28, experience the gentler side of the 20th Century with music of Franz Biebl, Roland Martin, and others. The featured anthem will be Franz Biebl’s “Ave Maria.” At 3:30 p.m., Albrecht von Gaudecker will present organ music of French composers Marcel Dupré, César Franck, and Olivier Messiaen, with the service beginning at 4 p.m.  Be present with us as we “worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness!”
