With the late Rev. Alexander Schmemann’s important work Great Lent as our guide,
this four-week series will take us through the liturgies of the Great Fast to help us experience them more deeply and make the most out of the Church’s beautiful season of preparation for Pascha.

“... hung upon the cross, He who suspended the Earth amid the waters... He, who wrapped the heavens in clouds is clothed with the purpose of mockery. He was transfixed with nails, who is the Bridegroom of the Church... We worship your passion, O Christ. Show us also your glorious resurrection.” - Vespers of Great Friday

The purification of the heart is the first of three stages, the essential starting point of the Christian life. How do we identify the presence of the passions in our own lives, and what are the means, the medicine, that the Church gives us to overcome them?

In this Bible study we’ll explore what the scriptures tell us about the life of the thirteenth Apostle and the impact of his conversion on the Church, and learn how to read Saint Paul’s epistles in the context of his life to understand them and his ministry to the Church more fully.
