Are we all called to askesis, or asceticism, or is it only the calling of a select few? Join us this Great Lent as we learn from the great ascetics of the Church, discovering how to apply the practice of askesis in our own lives.
With the late Rev. Alexander Schmemann’s important work Great Lent as our guide, this four-week series will take us through the liturgies of the Great Fast to help us experience them more fully and make the most out of the Church’s beautiful season of preparation for Pascha.
As the Great Feast of the Nativity draws closer, we will ponder God’s gift of Himself to us, and consider how we can make a gift of ourselves to Him with the prayers of the Church in this holy season as our guide.
