Canterbury Downtown Spring 2012

Spring Break has ended, and the last weeks of the spring semester are moving right along.  There is much to look forward to, and many opportunities to gather in community before the summer months collect us for our new jobs, internships, travels, rest, and preparation for the next big thing on the horizon.  For today, I encourage you to enjoy today.  To take a walk, to notice that some of the trees are blooming, while others remain bare, not yet ready to reveal their buds.

Hopefully this last week has given you refreshment and renewal that will invigorate your next steps.  As you look ahead to the coming weeks, remember the refreshment that stepping away from the computer and the business of student life to gather in community can be, and join with the Canterbury community to continue renewal of your friendships, your faith, your whole self – body, mind and spirit.

Canterbury Downtown gathers on Sunday evenings for Holy Eucharist followed by a home-cooked meal @ 6:00 p.m. at The Church of the Ascension (5th Avenueand10th Street)
