Faith, Education and Formation Committee – Survey
The Faith, Education and Formation Committee of the Fundy St. Lawrence Dawning Waters Regional Council would like to be able to offer support in the form of resource lists, workshops, etc. but would like to make sure the offerings are relevant to members in the region. To ensure the relevancy they are asking members of the region to fill out a short survey that we assist in their committee’s planning. The survey can be found at https://forms.gle/Tdr9UXpAkLc18x9Z9 and the deadline for responses is March 5.

Lent Resources from the Prayer Bench.
In 1609 during the plague, the playwright Thomas Dekker “pivoted” and wrote a prayer book calling four birds out of the Ark to carry prayers to God under their wings. Using his image of the four birds, in this Lent retreat, I call upon the dove, the eagle, the pelican and the phoenix to help us reflect on our Lent journey tracing the pattern of the Love, Life, Death and Rising of Jesus in our days. For more information, see https://prayerbench.ca/product/four-birds-lent-retreat/
You might also be interested in signing up for the Holy Week Daily Email Series. We look at a Psalm each day as a cry of the heart, arriving at Easter without bypassing the suffering and clothes in compassion and deeper in joy.
