A Lenten Teaching

Watch for our Lenten teaching on Facebook. We will post each week through Lent.

Lent is an important reminder that God's love is strong enough to take away our sins. Lent opens our eyes shows us our weaknesses and our temptations. Through those challenges, God's wonderful grace can be revealed to us more fully. Let's not miss this Lent's opportunity to start a new facet of our relationship with Jesus. We demonstrate our repentance by receiving the ashes, spending a little more time in prayer, and reconciling with others.

Be the Bridge: Pursuing God's Heart for Racial Reconciliation by Latasha Morrison

Latasha Morrison is a bridge-builder, reconciler, and powerful voice in the fight for racial justice. Be the Bridge presents a compelling vision of what it means for every follower of Jesus to become a bridge-builder-committed to pursuing justice and racial unity in light of the gospel.

There's still time to join the study at 7 p.m. Thursdays. Please write or text Fr. Greg+ (, 843-367-3342) for details. The book is available through Charleston County Public Library or Amazon (

At St. John's


Sunday, Feb. 7
O Lord, our heavenly Father, keep your household the Church continually in your true religion, that we who trust in the hope of your heavenly grace may always be defended by your mighty power; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of February we pray for the nation of Myanmar. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in Myanmar are suffering due to violence, insurrection, persecution, and political upheaval. We lift them up in your Holy Name, asking for your mercy to surround them. We pray for the Christian churches in Myanmar to persevere through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Lord, in your mercy: Hear our prayer.
