Father Carlton is pleased to announce our Lenten Study Series this year, Ending the Silence – Responding in Love, dealing with the issues surrounding sexual abuse in the church and the events that have occurred in our own parish. A team of church members representing vestry, pastoral care, and special expertise in treating victims of sexual abuse and their families, has been working with Father Carlton to design a structure for the series that is specific to the needs of Grace. We will examine sexual abuse from a spiritual point of view and its effects on our church, both as individuals and a community, and look forward to ways to prevent it in the future. The series will kick off with a special pre-Lent screening of the movie Spotlight on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 6 pm in the parish hall. There will be an opportunity for discussion following this very powerful film. Watch the trailer here:
Brown bag your own snack or dinner; coffee, tea and water provided. Child care will be available (please notify the office). We are restricting attendance to those who are 18 years of age and older. We hope you will join us for conversation and engagement in this difficult, but liberating work.
