A Lenten Journey: Connecting with Mary’s Sorrows

Saturdays, March 4 & 25 from 9 – 11 a.m. and Wednesdays, March 8 & 15 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Each session will explore different sorrows of Mary. You are invited to attend some or all four of the sessions. Each session is $10. You can pay at the door.

Have you received bad news lately or sat by the bedside of someone dying? Mary, the Mother of Jesus, experienced these kinds of sorrows and more. You are invited to connect with Mary’s seven sorrows as you journey through Lent this year. The model of Mary’s presence to her own suffering can empower us to be with the suffering in our lives and the suffering of our world and its people.  Linda Hess, OSM, Director of St. Peregrine Ministry, and Kerry Larkin, OSM, spiritual director and retreat director

The Servants of Mary (Servites) is a Catholic community of women religious and lay associates called to bring the compassionate presence of God, in the spirit of Mary, to all those whom we meet and with whom we minister.

We belong to an international community, the Order of Servants of Mary (OSM). Our Motherhouse (Our Lady of Sorrows Convent) is located in Omaha, NE. We have members across the country and around the world. Together, we are committed to a life rooted in prayer, community, and service.

Some of Sr. Joyce Rupp’s most perennially popular books have been collections of her original prayers, blessings, poems, and reflections. In Prayer Seeds, the bestselling author and retreat leader offers almost a hundred new selections on a variety of themes such as the feasts and seasons of the liturgical year, compassion, ministry, difficult times, and important events—all suitable for personal or group prayer.

In 2000, she collected her prayers in the book Out of the Ordinary. In Prayer Seeds, Sr. Joyce follows up with about a hundred never-before-published prayers written since the publication of the first collection. The prayers are organized thematically.
