The Good Friday Stations of the Cross for kids and families is back at Lincoln Park this year. Come join us Friday, April 14th, from 10 am-1:30 pm. 

The event is a self-guided, self-paced journey through the story of Good Friday.

Each family will receive an empty bag with a story guide and a list of objects to be collected at the 15 stations. Your children can take these story bags home and use them to re-tell the Good Friday story. Families can spend as much or as little time at each station depending on the needs and ages of your children.

When: Good Friday, April 14th, from 10:00am-1:30pm

Where: Lincoln Park (Eastside) Washington, DC 

Hosted by Church of the Resurrection

Refreshments will be provided and picnicking is welcomed.  In case of severe weather the  alternate location is the RezHouse 811 N. Carolina Ave. SE.

A fascinating fact: President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on Good Friday, April 14, 1865. The statue of Lincoln in Lincoln park was unveiled on April 14, 1876, the 11th anniversary of his death. Frederick Douglas was the keynote speaker at this event with 25,000 people in attendance. 

Come experience His Story and history with us. Please feel free to invite friends and spread the word.

We could also really use some volunteers to help for an hour or so on Friday, the 14th, with set-up and clean-up.  Sign up here if you are able to help for a bit!

Contact Lissy for more information.

Parish Retreat April 21-23, 2017

“Going to church” every Sunday can seem like a quaint relic of yesteryear. And when we think about all our burdens and responsibilities, the additional responsibility of church participation can feel like the last straw. But God’s Word teaches that being part of a church family is rich and life-giving. “Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Why do we gather? Who are these people, and why should I love them? What happens spiritually when we gather together on Sundays?

Join us to reflect on these questions together as we rest and grow in communion with the Lord and his people.

Please sign up here  for the Parish Retreat at Meadowkirk  in Middleburg, Virginia. From Friday night, April 21 to Sunday mid-morning, April 23.

Registration will close on Wednesday, April 5 and all payments are due by Sunday, April 9. Registrations cancelled by the retreat participant must be paid in full if cancelled after Wednesday, April 12.

We have scholarships available! If you need financial assistance to attend, please do not hesitate to reach out to Hrvoje.

Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there!!!
