Today: Evensong, a traditional Anglican service of music, prayer, and reflection, will be offered at 5:30 p.m.
Tuesday: Shrove Tuesday pancake supper—This year, our traditional supper will feature crêpes (they’re pancakes, too!) with a variety of sweet and savory fillings provided potluck-style by members, in addition to the typical side dishes and American pancakes that we’ve enjoyed in past years. We are also eager to welcome performers for our Talent Optional Show, and all are invited to team up for the annual Pancake Race! Join us in Seccombe Hall at 5:30 p.m. on March 4 for an evening of pre-Lent fun.
Wednesday: Join us for Bible study from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. in Grant Hall as we explore Jesus’ life in a chronological study of the Gospels.
Wednesday: Ash Wednesday services will be held at noon and 7:00 p.m. Bishop Mary will be our celebrant at the evening service.
Our annual Lenten soup suppers will begin next Wednesday, March 12. Dinner begins at 6:00 p.m., followed by Lenten presentations by Bishop Mary, Canon Jesus Reyes, Ed Fincke, Canon Brian Nordwick, Frank Graham, and others. A children’s program will be offered in the library. Dust off your tastiest soup recipe, sign up for a slot on the roster of cooks, and enjoy this Lenten opportunity for fellowship and spiritual growth.
