These prayers were prepared and used for the CCVI Holy Week Retreat for our Jubilee Year, 2019. They were a source of unity and solidarity for us as we prayed our retreat together. They are provided here as a resource for our Holy Week prayer this year; may they bring all who pray them into our community of prayer and concern.

For the IWA’s celebration of the 150th Jubilee, they installed a large (40 feet long!) mural with the “A Life for God / A Heart for Others” motto in the main hallway of the administration building. In addition, there are also large posters with the motto in each building on campus, as well as a smaller version in each classroom.
Something magical has enveloped us during our Jubilee Year with many different opportunities and forms of encounter we have experienced. A vital need for communication, love and encounters dwells within us. What is happening to us? We can find the answer by re-tracing the path of the 150th anniversary of the Congregation and by celebrating the Congregational Christmas: The Word of God is not only good news and a message, He became flesh! He lives in us and among us.
