Lenten Suppers and Discussions 2018
A weekly simple supper of soup and bread, followed by a spiritual reflection given by noted scholars, a variety of clergy and lay people. All suppers and discussions are held on Tuesday evenings at the Morcone Conference Center and begin at 6:30 p.m. No reservations required. Donations gratefully accepted.
Deepen your appreciation of Jesus’ journeys by attending Glastonbury Abbey’s Lenten Suppers this year. The Lenten season’s weekly supper talks will focus on the gospels from Year A of the Lectionary which are proposed for every year as part of the program to educate new candidates for baptism, and renew all of us in our baptismal commitment. The biblical themes are based in God’s presence in nature.
