in Catechesis

The Divine Liturgy: Benediction

Part of the Liturgy: Benediction

Summary: The liturgy ends with the Lord’s name, and the blessings that come from it. In the Benediction, the Lord “speaks a good thing” to us, namely, that our sins are forgiven, that He will guard and protect us, that He will turn to us in mercy and grace.

Join us each week after Divine Service (~10:30am) for coffee, treats, and a study of a part of the Liturgy. Join us as you are able. Children and adults welcome alike. No advance preparation is required.

We gather regularly for instruction in the Word of God, not simply to learn knowledge about God, but that our faith in Jesus Christ might be strengthened, and that we might live by that faith in our lives. We call this kind of teaching “catechesis.” Receiving our Lord’s teaching from the Holy Scriptures is a way of life for us, young and old alike, from the cradle to the grave. Our Lord is with us wherever His Word is faithfully taught and received.
