Lectio Divina

Erie Episcopal is now offering a group contemplative practice of Lectio Divina. As opposed to Bible study, Lectio Divina (Latin for “Divine Reading”) is a structured practice of reading and reflecting on Scripture as a form of prayer. We read the text listening for God’s word to us in our current life situation.

The group meets on Monday evenings at 7:00 P.M. in the Diocesan House Chapel.

Taizé at Saint Mark’s

Taizé Evening Prayer is a service of worship inspired by the Taizé Community – an ecumenical community of Christian brothers in southern France. Founded in 1949, Taizé strives to be a community fostering reconciliation between all people placing kindness of heart and simplicity at the center of its common life.

Expressed through Taizé’s unique style of worship – utilizing repetitive chants, candlelight, and silence – the worship of Taizé helps create a holy space where the veil separating Heaven and Earth is lifted and all are welcomed into the divine, loving presence of God.

St. Mark’s will host these evenings on the second Sunday of each month at 7:00 P.M.

Celtic Spirituality at the Cathedral

Landscape- in the Celtic Way is everything……. It is the geography of the soul, the wonderment of imagination. It is the stone of remembering, the resonance of life once lived. It is the invitation to possibility that: the richness of what has been left must be grieved, the emptiness must be honored and brought to speech, the blend is between ever and never changing is ripe with curiosity, the new is woven throughout it all.

Celtic Spirituality Nights are an opportunity to come to awareness of God’s healing and hope-filled presence. Through poetry, reflection, prayer, music, and engagement with the Celtic Spirit, you are invited to discover hope, wholeness, and renewal.

The Cathedral will host these evenings on the third Sunday of each month at 7:00 P.M.
