Words of Love from Calvary
A Series of Special Presentation for the Season of Lent
“What was the last thing she said to you before she died?” “What was the last thing he told you before he passed away?” We often treasure the last words that a loved one was able to speak to us prior to their death.
The church, too, treasures the last words that Jesus spoke to us. As we ponder these Words of Love from Calvary, we will have the opportunity to understand what Jesus was trying to tell us in those crucial hours, allowing his final words to deepen our faith during this holy season of Lent.
Each week we will focus on one of the seven statements Jesus made from the Cross. The presentations will take place on Thursday evenings at 7 o’clock, with the same presentation repeated on Friday mornings at 10 o’clock. These 90 minute sessions will include time for questions.
