Men's Retreat

Men's Retreat 2018 Banner.jpg

The topic of this year’s Men’s Retreat will be “Disappointment & Discovery: Meeting Jesus on the Road to Emmaus.” We all face frustrations and disappointments in life. Yet, Jesus meets us on the road of our disaffection, teaches us about himself, and invites us to sit at table with Him. Join us for a weekend of honest conversations as we explore our disappointments and discover more about Jesus together. Come also for fellowship, great food, fun games (read: paintball), and glorious views of the mountains at Undertree Lodge in Jefferson, CO. 

Register by October 21st. Contact Rob Paris (rob@adventdenver.com) or Josh Williams (josh.t.williams@gmail.com) for more information.

Taize Service

This service is patterned after worship in the ecumenical community of Taizé. Their sung and silent participatory prayer services are designed for contemplation through song, Scripture, and silence. The different tempo of the Taizé service encourages us to break away from the hurried sense of our lives and breathe in the presence of Christ and community.

Holy Week Services

Holy Week Schedule Banner.jpg

The Great Triduum is one of the most significant traditions of the Church, dating back to the first centuries. It refers to the "great three days" of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter, which are each core events in our faith. Participating in all three days together adds depth and power to our remembrance and celebration of God's great love revealed to us in Jesus' death and resurrection. 

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday commemorates Jesus' last night on earth. It reminds us of the love and humility Jesus reflected in washing his disciples feet, which also points to our cleansing of sin through his great sacrifice. At this service, we do a ritual foot washing as Jesus commanded his disciples to do in remembrance of what he did for them. It is a powerful time of focusing on the significance of the Last Supper, as it provides a larger space for us to enter into the event behind all our Eucharistic celebrations.

Good Friday

The glory of Easter is only properly understood in the context of the shame and sorrow of Good Friday. This powerful service provides the space to remember and enter into the meaning and power of the events that led to his crucifixion and the sorrow and the beauty of his great sacrifice for us and for the whole world.

Easter Morning

Easter is central to our faith, of course, as it commemorates the steadfast love of God revealed in the resurrection of Christ from the grave and secures our hope that all the sorrows and sins of this world have been overcome in and through him. The bodily resurrection of Christ from the grave is the central event of our faith and our hope.

Men's Gathering

Men's Gathering 3.18 Banner.jpg

As the weather warms and the grass grows greener, the time for us to gather as men has come again. What more perfect occasion than St. Patrick's Day? As a native Chicagoan, I especially enjoy this fabled day, with fond memories of the river turning green, bagpipes, corn beef and cabbage, and the occasional Guinness. 

So, mark your calendars for Saturday March 17. The details:

When: 7:30pm - until we're done. If you have little leprechauns, help put them down, kiss your wife goodbye, and come on over.

What: Irish games (croquet), backyard bonfire, conversation, kilts (Rob said he would wear one), and Irish beer-tasting.

Why: Because I miss you all, and it will be great to get together.
