Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Renewal, and Reconciliation Conference

Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Renewal, and Reconciliation Conference

Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Renewal, and Reconciliation
A conference on Anglicanism and the Church

6-9 June 2017

This conference focuses on the necessary connection between repentance, reconciliation, and renewal, which we approach under the heading of “living sacrifice,” drawn from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. Sacrifice, after Christ’s example, draws the faithful into a transformative participation in his Passion, through which death is overcome. In this perspective, repentance serves as the offering that enables forgiveness and reconciliation.

Ash Wednesday Chapel Services

From Prof. Moroney:

While we will have no classes on Ash Wednesday, we will have the Prayer Book liturgy for the day at 9:00 AM, as well as simple Evensong at 5:30 PM. Both will be around the font. We are also putting signs of welcome for the morning service on the bulletin boards at each gate, with a person to open the chapel gate, as a way of inviting anyone in the surrounding community who would like to join us.
