Join Archbishop Greg and the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer for a day of Lenten meditations and prayer. Our relationship with God is the most important there is, yet so often the frenetic activity of life leaves us with little time to truly connect with God. This Lenten Season, why not take one day to reconnect with God's central presence in your life? Register by emailing: FellowshipPrayerCalgary@gmail.com. Please list all dietary restrictions with your registration. Connect with Jesus. Pray with the Community. Soothe your Soul.
