What Can We Learn From Jonah?
Sundays, February 28 and March 14

We'll explore the rather comedic book of Jonah! Join us on February 28, to discuss chapters 1 and 2, and on March 14 for chapters 3 and 4. (March 7 is the Annual Parish Business Meeting). Jonah is a short book—only 4 chapters. So if you're not sure Bible Study is for you, here's a chance to try it for a couple of sessions. Questions? Please contact Norma Williamson. Join the Zoom gathering HERE. More information HERE.


Centering Prayer
Mondays at 1:30 p.m. on Zoom

Please join us for Centering Prayer, a means of Christian meditation that uses a single word for us to rest our attention while we come before the presence of God. This will include a brief check-in, an opening prayer, brief instruction, 20 minutes of silence and then a brief closing prayer. Please follow the link below and follow the prompts. Join the Zoom gathering HERE. More information HERE.


Men’s Bible Study
Tuesdays; 6:45–7:45 a.m. on Zoom

Join us on Zoom early for coffee followed by our Bible study. Please contact the Rev. Jon Strand or Ray Wadlow to RSVP. We are using the Bible study guide from St. Stephen’s Richmond—found HERE—to start out. We will generally meet weekly, taking breaks for holidays and the summer.


Compline and Conversation
Tuesdays; 8:00–8:15 p.m. on Zoom

Compline is descended from the night prayers said before bed at the end of the monastic round of daily prayer. Join the Zoom gathering HERE. More information HERE. You may use our online Prayer Book HERE.


Noonday Prayer
Wednesdays on YouTube

Join us on our YouTube channel (Holy Comforter Vienna VA) for a brief 10 to 12 minute meditation.


Women’s Bible Study
Wednesdays; 8:00 p.m. on Zoom

Women of Holy Comforter, let’s connect, reflect, and virtually unwind from the day together. Join us at 8:00 p.m. for fellowship, some silence and reflection on the next Sunday’s Gospel passage. Every week, please contact the Rev. Ann Gillespie to be included—first come, first served (limit 20). Looking forward to ‘seeing’ you!
