    Hi there,

    I’m interested in purchasing Seasons of the Spirit for our Sunday School. Age ranges are between 5 and 11.

    We are an Anglo-Catholic parish (Anglican of the high church variety) and follow the Revised Common Lectionary. I believe your programme follows this lectionary format?

    Can you please point me in the right direction and fill me in on prices and how we pay. My parish still operates with the cheque book (no EFT … yet lol)!

    Wishing you peace and all good,

    Mtr Moira
