Pray the Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete with us!

Join the nuns of Christ the Bridegroom Community in a deeply-moving, once-a-year Lenten experience on Thursday, March 22, at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, 1900 Carlton Rd., Parma, OH.  The Great Canon of St. Andrew of Crete takes us on a journey through the entire Bible, placing us in the shoes of all the penitents of the Old and New Testaments and teaching us from their examples.  The hundreds of prostrations unite our body and soul as we repent of our sins and pour ourselves out in love as Christ did on the cross.  Simple Lenten food will be available 5:30-6:30 p.m. and the Canon will begin at 6:30 p.m.  All are invited to come for all or part of the Canon, whether or not you are physically able to participate in the prostrations.  The Canon will last three to four hours.  Please RSVP by Tuesday, March 20, to 440-834-0290 or so we know how much food and how many booklets to prepare.

Helpful hint: Stretch your legs first... :)
