The Bishop's Lenten Retreat for Laity:
Jesus Save Us! (Uh...from what?)
Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015
Time: 10 am - 3 pm
Place: St. Luke's Episcopal Church (5402 West Genesee St., Camillus)
A day of gently provocative teaching, contemplative worship, and fellowship.
"Get Real. This is perhaps the central call of God through the season of Lent. The forty days of introspection and renewal are not so much prescription as they are a journey, one in which we move into greater awareness of who we are, especially in our relationship to God and to one another." From Bishop Adams 2015 Lenten message
The program will run from 10 am to 3 pm, and Bishop Adams will offer the homily during a contemplative worship service.

*Who should attend this training?
There are two distinct groups of Worship Leaders in our diocese. This training session is designed for "Independent Worship Leaders" and NEW "Clergy Supported Worship Leaders".
Independent Worship Leaders: This type of Worship Leader has a great deal of responsibility and not necessarily much clergy support. They work on their own to plan services and may lead those services without clergy present or prepare services led by supply clergy or other lay Worship Leaders. The March 21st training is required for Independent Worship Leaders and must be renewed every 5 years.
Clergy Supported Worship Leaders: This type of Worship Leader has clergy support on a regular basis. They lead worship on their own only occasionally and when they plan worship they do it with help from the priest in or supplying for their parish. The March 21st training is for anyone who is training to be a Worship Leader for the first time. (Future re-licensing, every 5 years, will be conducted by your parish clergy.)
