The Cathedral of St. Peter will present its sixth annual Lenten Lessons on Sunday, March 18, at 2 p.m. The Lenten Lessons consist of Scripture readings, meditations and hymns, along with time for prayerful silence.
The service is being offered as “a way of moving closer to Christ as he makes his way toward the cross for the salvation of women and men,” said Father Joseph M.P.R. Cocucci,, rector of the cathedral. “With the culture bombarding us with noise and distractions from all directions, it’s important for Christians of every tradition to remember what it is for which we’re preparing during the Lenten season. We’re hoping to provide that little oasis of peace and reflection, even if only for an hour here in Quaker Hill.”
All are welcome to Lenten Lessons. Admission is free; a free-will be accepted for the Rector’s Scholarship, a fund that helps graduates of St. Peter’s Cathedral School with high school textbook assistance. The Cathedral is on the corner of Sixth and West Streets in Wilmington.
