Vigil in the Garden with Jesus, Maundy Thursday, from after the service through the night:

On this night, Jesus asked his disciples: “So, you could not watch with me one hour?” (Matthew 26:40) Come experience the opportunity for silence and prayer before the Lord as we watch on this night.

Good Friday Liturgy, Friday, April 3, noon:

Join us for the traditional Good Friday liturgy including the procession of the Cross and communion from the pre-sanctified.

Paschal Candle Lighting, Saturday, April 4, 6p:

Four Church Chili Cook Off Benefit
by Rich Barber - Wednesday, 4 February 2015, 04:20 PM
It's time for the Second Annual Four Church Chili Cook Off benefiting Camp New Happenings! Camp New Happenings is the diocesan camp for children whose parents are incarcerated. Last year, the chili cookoff between members of St. Paul's, St. Francis in Chesterton, Trinity in Michigan City, and St. Andrew's in Michigan City raised enough to send two kids to camp.

If you'd like to enter the chili cookoff (you'd just need to provide a crock pot full of chili), then please send a comment using the link at the bottom left menu, or let Fr. Thomas know in person. Otherwise, plan on attending this four parish event on Saturday, February 28 at 5:00p. This year's host: St. Paul's, 1000 Michigan Ave, La Porte. Building on last year, this year's event again promises to be a fun time of fellowship raising money for a great cause!
