Participants in this afternoon workshop learned to pray daily with a deeper appreciation for these aforementioned ancient songs.
"The main reason that I took this workshop is that I am a deacon who does morning and evening prayer," explained Deacon Dave Harpring, MAPS. "I wanted to learn more about the Psalms in order to help me in praying more effectively while more fully understanding their meaning."
The morning session of the workshop series was called "Journeying with Mark", during which Rev. Seán Charles Martin prepared participants to effectively preach the Gospel of Mark in the coming liturgical year.
