Quiet Days

Lenten Quiet Day
with The Rev. Dr. Robert Willis,
Dean Emeritus of Canterbury Cathedral

February 24, 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Lanier House

The Essential Quality of Silence in the Lives of Jesus and the Saints
The use of quiet time in our modern world has become more and more vital. In so many ways the noise, busyness and concerns of the world force their way into every part of life by so many different means. It means that "quiet time" has to be programmed into our thinking and praying time. In the past, local, and to a degree, national issues have always been there but now the affairs of the whole world are set out before us in our pockets the moment they occur. This makes a day like this, which we set aside, even more vital. We shall be exploring this aspect of our lives with illustrations and quotations from saints throughout the ages but most importantly in the life of Jesus himself. Join us on this day and explore the gifts of space and silence.

The Quiet Day will take place in the Lanier House on the Cathedral campus from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, February 24. The cost is $20 and includes lunch. Space is limited so register soon!  For more information contact Jeannie Mahood,, or 404-365-1031.
