Dear Brothers & Sisters in our Lord,

The season of “Preparation for the Preparation” is drawing to a close, and Great Lent is right around the corner.  I’ve prepared a Guide to Keeping a Holy Lent that can be read or printed by clicking here.

Bible Study at 9am  │  Sunday School at 10am 

SHROVE TUESDAY (Feb. 13):  Evening Prayer at 5:45pm    Pancake Supper at 6pm

FRIDAY (Feb. 16):  Stations of the Cross at 6pm

SUNDAY (Feb. 18):  The Litany and Holy Eucharist at 10am (First Sunday in Lent)  │  Evensong at 5pm

February’s Vestry Meeting commences shortly after Mass tomorrow morning.

Gentlemen:  I need your help in the kitchen and parish hall for Shrove Tuesday.  Please let me know if you can be available during the late afternoon &/ or evening to cook, serve, and clean.  Thanks in advance!

Might you be interested in joining our choir, the Schola Cantorum, in preparation for Easter Day?  Of course you are!  We’ll have details very soon re. rehearsals and repertoire.

A Parish Handbook including a directory of our households will soon be published.  Let me know at your earliest convenience if we don’t have all of your contact information.

Lent is the perfect time to step up your donation of food items for the needy.  Feel free to deposit them in the Narthex for regular distribution during the season.

Many thanks to Barbara and all who turned out for the first Ladies Fellowship gathering!  Stay tuned for an announcement re. March’s get-together.

Do you have any ANNOUNCEMENTS for the faithful at the close of Mass, in the bulletin, or via these email/ Internet postings?  Please submit them to me for inclusion

See you in the morning—much love & many blessings,
