St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church hosts “Thursday Nights Together” each year during Lent.
The 2011 series is called Seeing the Face of God in Each Other. It will explore the questions ‘How well do we really know each other?’ and ‘How can we pierce the fog of attitudes about race, religion and background?’ through the experiences of five presenters.
The series opens on March 17th with The Rt. Rev. Prince Singh, Bishop of Rochester. On March 24, Rabbi Laurence Kotok of Temple B’rith Kodesh will be the speaker. The Very Rev. Frederic Reynolds, Rector of St. Paul’s, will present on March 31.
On April 7, Kathy Walczak, a St. Thomas’ parishioner, will introduce Step By Step, a program that ministers to women in prison or at risk. The final program of the series, Looking at Racism, will be presented on April 14 by The Rev. Andrea Stridiron, Deacon, and St. Thomas’ parishioner Marlene Allen.
All “Thursday Nights Together” evenings begin with a simple supper at 6:00, followed by the program at 6:30. Each evening concludes with Compline at 7:20. All evenings are held at St. Thomas’, 2000 Highland Avenue, Rochester. They are free of charge and open to the public. Pre-registration for dinner is strongly encouraged either at www.stthomasrochester.org or by calling the church office (585-442-3544).
A delicious meal—including peanut butter and jelly for children—will be served at 6:00 p.m. (a free-will offering will be collected), the program begins at 6:30, and Compline will follow at 7:20. While adults are listening to the talk in the church, children will work on a craft projectin the lower hall, and the Boys and Girls Choirs will rehearse their upcomingmusical,Hurry On Down!
