FIRST SUNDAy OF LENT CAThEDRAL OF ThE ANNUNCIATION

First Sunday of lent
5 March 2017
Lead Us from Temptation
Creator God, you formed us in your image
and breathed your life into us, filling us with your spirit;
Yet we turn our backs to you and respond to the temptations
of wisdom beyond our grasp and the possibilities of power and gain.
Be merciful to us, O Lord, for we have sinned with open eyes and selfish hearts.
Be merciful, O Lord, for we know not what we do.
May your mercy fall on us, O Lord, as we seek to do your will,
for you live and reign united as Father, Son, and Spirit, for ever and ever.
Amen.

nations can be subjected is that of imagining themselves special
instruments of the Divine Will.”

CRECER
Oración Alrededor de la Cruz
GROW
Prayer Around the Cross
"¿Desearía usted tener una
hora para “permanecer y
estar" con Dios? ¿La vida es
tan ocupada que a veces usted
se pierde y se siente
desconectado de su fe? La
Oración Alrededor de la Cruz es
para usted. Este es un momento especial de oración
durante la Cuaresma, donde tienen la oportunidad de
orar en la Cruz, meditar y disfrutar del silencio y
música de meditación estilo de Taize en un ambiente
alumbrado con la luz de las velas en nuestra Catedral.
Tome esta temporada de Cuaresma para si mismo.
Venga a la Oración Alrededor de la Cruz y permita
que Dios llene su corazón en este bello
ambiente." Esto tendrá lugar en la Catedral el:
Lunes, 13 de Marzo y
el Lunes, 27 de Marzo a las 7pm.
"Do you wish you could find an
hour just to be "still" with God?
Is life so busy that you
sometimes lose yourself and feel
disconnected from practicing
your faith for your own
well-being and peace of mind?
Then Prayer Around the Cross is for you. This is a special
Lenten prayer service where you have the opportunity to
pray at the cross, meditate, and enjoy some silence and
mantra-like music within Taize-style, in a candlelit
environment in our Cathedral. Take the time for YOU
this Lent. Come to Prayer Around the Cross and allow
God to fill your heart in this beautiful environment."
This will take place in the Cathedral on:
Monday, March 13th and Monday,
March 27th at 7pm.
