    An Invitation…

    For the past years, I have complied daily prayers for the season of Lent and sent them daily via email. You are invited to receive them this year! Many of the prayers come from ancient sources by our early church “parents”. Other prayers are more contemporary. All of have been chosen because they are concise and thoughtful.
     
    Getting a prayer in your “inbox” every morning can be a devotional start to your day during the holy season.

    If you wish to subscribe, just send an email with the word “subscribe” in the subject line to pastor.bru@mountolivet.ca
