Dearest community,

It is that time...Lent is upon us! March 6th we begin the reverential time of Lent all leading up to the grandest celebration of Eastertide (April 21st)

Before we get out our sack cloth and ashes, let's start with a little party time. March 6th we will have our traditional Pancake supper from 5-7 pm. We will have pancakes (of course), bacon, sausage, coffee, milk, juice and all sorts of toppings (to make your blood sugar go giddy with delight). As always there is no cost. A free will donation will be taken and will be added to our charity contributions for the community. A facebook event, from our own Facebook page (didn't know we have one...well then like us and you will get daily scripture as well as useful information) will have been created as you are reading this so feel free to share it often as you feel comfortable.

Ash Wednesday service will be on March 6th at noon (said) and 6 pm (sung). Last video study of Ravi Zecharias', "Yes, your question" after the 6 pm service.

Stations of the cross will begin this Friday, March 8th, at 6 pm followed by a local Fish Fry, to be determined on the day unless someone wants to take the reins and plan accordingly.

Wednesday services in Lent will come from the many prayer books that have been created over the course of our Anglican history. Bible Study will follow and be based on the 39 Articles and Reformation. If you want to hone up on your 39 Articles they are in the back of your Prayer Book and outline why we practice our faith tradition as we do.

We are officially in our busy but reflective season, so come one come all and bring a friend! Questions respond reply and not reply all. If you are on this list and don't want to be please reply and I will remove you.

May God bless you and grant you a restful Sabbath!
