KEEPING A GOOD LENT

Lent is a season for getting back to the basics. It’s the time of year when we take a careful look at everything that fills our lives, and ask ourselves, plainly and simply, if they are helping us love God with all our heart, mind, and strength, and love our neighbors as ourselves. It’s that basic, and also that hard. You are invited to join St. Luke’s for some or all of the following offerings each week, as they have the potential to deeply nourish our souls, and strengthen us as we grow throughout Lent and beyond.

FORMATION OPPORTUNITIES

SMALL GROUPS

We invite you to explore through the St. Luke’s Lenten Small Group Series. All are welcome to join one of the following groups:

DROP IN SERIES

The Good Death drop-in series begins Sunday, March 10. Our first group will be led by Pam Palmentera, LCSW and former Bereavement Coordinator at Northwestern Hospital hospice program. She will engage us in an empowering discussion that explores our values and perspectives about end of life conversation and decision making.

The group will meet in the parlor from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM.  Following weeks will include:
March 17 – What does our faith tradition say about end of life planning and decision making plus 5 Wishes and Advanced Directives
March 24 – planning our funerals
April 2 (Tuesday night from 7:00-8:30 PM) – Wills, Estates and Trusts with Scott McCue
April 7 – Wrapping it all up.
This is an opportunity to take care of the important work we need to do while we are living to assure that those who survive us are not left wondering about our wishes. Please contact Courtney, mcreid1@att.net, if you’d like to know more.
