Christ Episcopal Church, Eureka, invites all to a variety of Lenten activities being offered during this season.
On Saturdays in Lent, there’s outdoor Eucharist in Sequoia Park. Gather at the main entrance (red gate) at 11 am. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather, rain or shine.
Between regular Sunday services, an Introduction to the Episcopal Church course will be offered. This class is a refresher for anyone interested in reacquainting themselves with the fundamentals of faith and practice, and is a requirement for anyone wishing to be baptized at the Easter Vigil service at 7 p.m. April 20. The class will be held after both the 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services: from 9:15 to 10:15 a.m. in Lewis Hall and 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in the Heritage Room.
On Tuesday evenings during Lent, a soup supper will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Parish Hall along with a class on Celtic Christianity led by the Rev. Dr. Daniel London. Participants will read and discuss J. Philip Newell’s work “Listening for the Heartbeat of God: A Celtic Spirituality.” There will be weekly sign-ups for the supper for those who plan to attend or would like to bring food. Following the supper and discussion, a service of Celtic Compline will be held at 7 p.m. in the Chapel of our Merciful Saviour.
Lenten music programs will again be offered on Fridays at noon. A half-hour program of music celebrating this season is offered to the community as an opportunity for quiet reflection and meditation in this sacred space. All are invited for conversation, fellowship and light refreshments in the Parish Hall following the program. Musicians who will be presenting programs include March 22 — Tre Amici (Helen Winfrey, clarinet; Nancy Streufert, flute; Merry Phillips, piano); March 29 — Gary Klemp, organ and piano; April 5 — Doug Moorehead, organ; and April 12 — Paul Gossard, guitar.
