  1. As someone who remembers Father Banner at the old wooden
    church on Bowdin Street in Boston, it’s reassuring to see that
    SSJE is still providing its healing services.

  2. Thank you for Lenten journey. It is so good to feel part of this virtual community. I continue with you in prayer.

  3. The Lenten Study, “Marks of Mission” has been a source of growth and a deeper consciousness and inspiration of the love of Christ in our lives and how we (I) can reach out in faith to serve others in a loving, caring way to the glory of God.

  8. I have found the Lent course of Marks of Mission invaluable as a starter for sermons and other reflexion during the run up to Easter. I have appreciated how rewarding it is to be drawn to contemplate more deeply the five wounds of Christ at this time.
    I was pleased to see that your videos are once again being shown daily in the cathedral in Canterbury.
    Thank you for your inspiration from across the Pond!
    Have a joyous Easter
