Congratulations to Deacon Spencer Stubblefield, ordained yesterday and serving today at Sung Mass as Deacon of the Mass and Preacher.
Confirmation and First Communion Classes are planned for the near future. Please see the Parish Hall Sign-Up Board to express your interest in these classes.
Everyone is invited to return palm branches from previous Palm Sundays, so that they may be burned for use as ashes on Ash Wednesday.
Every year at some point roughly midway between Christmas and Easter, we find the Sundays...designated by those big “Gesima” words: Septuagesima, Sexagesima, and Quinquagesima. These Sundays, in fact, mark a kind of divide between the joy and thankfulness of Christmas and Epiphany and the introspection of Lent, to be followed by the greatest joy of all at Easter.”
As previously announced, looking ahead to Shrove Tuesday on March 5, 2019, the evening’s festivities begin with Evening Prayer at 5:30 p.m. and then we’ll enjoy a Pancake Supper, with lots other trimmings, including Mardi Gras themed Cajun dishes. If you have some other culinary offering you’d like to bring and share, please do. Our purpose on Shrove Tuesday is to celebrate the end of the Season of Epiphany and our common life at Holy Apostles, as we prepare to enter into the Holy Season of Lent together.
