Anglican Spirituality: practice, experience and discipline
Fr. David invites you to join him to learn about our liturgy at SsAM and to understand and reflect on why we do what we do when we worship. We will also experience saying the Daily Office and discuss the benefits of developing a personal rule of life. All are welcome on Wednesday evenings, July 20, 27 and August 3 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Please contact the Church Office at 302-656-6628 if you plan on attending.
