Catechesis at All Souls

Fall 2022

“Prayer Book Spirituality”

Using the Book of Common Prayer Beyond Sundays

In our catechesis this fall we will be teaching about ways in which our Book of Common Prayer can guide you in your own personal spiritual practices. The topics will begin with some “how-to’s” about navigating the prayer book for personal devotions, and then moving on to topics of spirituality in the context of using the Book of Common Prayer. There will also be lots of time for questions and small group sharing. 

We are hoping that through this series many of our souls will want to own a personal copy of the prayer book for their use at home. To that end, we will provide interested attendees with their own copy of the ACNA Book of Common Prayer, 2019.  

Come a few minutes before our sessions begin at 9:30 AM and grab a cup of coffee!
