GREAT WEDNESDAYS

Dinner

Classes

Since the earliest days, Christians have celebrated Jesus through the sharing of worship, ideas and food. Our Great Wednesdays continue that tradition of nourishing body, mind and spirit. Consider Great Wednesday to be a midweek spiritual break, a mini-Sabbath. Give yourself, your friends, and family this gift of time. Put it on your weekly schedule. Come for the intimate worship service, a delicious meal, and the opportunity to learn something new.

Great Wednesday Dinner Schedule & Pricing

5:30-7:00 Dinner is continually served in Parish Hall during this time frame.
*Cost: $7.00 Adults and $3.00 children

6:00-6:30  Healing Holy Eucharist in St. Bede’s Chapel

7:00-8:00  Great Wednesday Programs and Classes

*At the request of the Finance Committee and in response to God’s call to be good stewards of the many gifts bestowed upon us, you will note that there has been a $2.00 increase in the cost of Great Wednesday dinners. Great Wednesday dinners at Palmer often include three full courses – salad, entrée and dessert – plus beverages. This increase will help us to live within our means by covering the costs associated with this parish offering.

Volunteer

Great Wednesday requires the work of many hands and there are a number of ways you can help. All parishioners are invited to participate; no need to wait for any particular group or team sign-up!

With all that happens during Sunday liturgies, Faith Forums are regrettably brief. Great Wednesday provides the chance for discussion and a more applied approach to exploring the essentials of our faith. Our Great Wednesday series mirrors the Faith Forum, but with an eye toward applying these essentials of our faith. Not sure how to pray with the Book of Common Prayer? Wondering how to read specific challenging texts? Interested in discussing some theologians together? Great Wednesday is the chance to engage these habits of faith together. Come when you can and come often!
