Psalter Group Sign-ups for Great Lent 2014


Great Lent begins in just a few days and you know what that means, right? It’s time to sign up for the Psalter Prayer Group again! Yay!  I can hardly wait to start tucking that little green book in my bag again.

This is one of my favorite things during the 40-day fasts.  It is a quiet time that I can look forward to each day.  And by quiet, I don’t mean the things around me are quiet, those things rarely are, but rather the hush that comes over my soul whenever I open my Psalter and read.

Last time, I periodically posted some various writings on why reading the Psalms is so beneficial and I’ll be doing that again this time as well.  There are some really beautiful thoughts on this.  God-willing they will strengthen and encourage us as we prepare to receive the Bridegroom and as we trudge the rocky roads of our Lenten journeys.  So please keep an eye out for those!

So if you’re interested in joining please leave YOUR BAPTISMAL NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS in the comment section of this post. If you’re not familiar with this group, click here for all the details…

I will have the groups and everyone’s assigned readings up by the end of day Monday!  But don’t worry, if you stumble upon this post after the fast has begun, you can still sign up.  It’s never too late to join in!

You can purchase a pocket Psalter or full-sized one here.

    Thank you!

    • Orthodox Mom says:

      It’s never too late! I’ll add you now, Xenia! :)

      • I haven’t gotten any emails but perhaps that’s because I never included my address!

        • Orthodox Mom says:

          Hi Heidi! The emails are actually only used to help differentiate between members. For example, there are usually several Katherine’s or Maria’s and so I’ll include part of their email address to help them figure out who is who. Just scroll the the Psalter Groups Assignments post and look for your name! :) Thanks for checking in!!
