Stations of the Cross at 5:30 PM Evening Prayer at 6:15 PMLenten Soup Suppers at 6:30 PM“The Abolitionists” at 7:30 PM

Join us after our Lenten Suppers for a video series and conversations in five parts – studying the lives and missions of five faithful, yet utterly different, crusaders who confronted the seminal paradox of our nation’s history: slavery. Strengthened and informed by their deep Christian faith, Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Angelina Grimké, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and John Brown, (the eloquent eyewitness, the tireless yet frustrated newspaper publisher, the repentant slave owner, the world-changing storyteller, and the failed anti-slavery jihadist), became the conscience of a nation and the winner of people’s hearts and minds.

Each night a part of the American Experience documentary, The Abolitionists, will be viewed followed by a discussion led by Fr. Patrick, drawing on his scholarship and years of experience teaching U.S. Religious History. Our conversations will focus on how these abolitionists’ faith led them to have an impact in their world in deeply dividing and volatile issues, and where they succeeded and failed in their impact and lives’ work.
