SARA NEEDS YOUR HELP! Our new Parish Life Coordinator, Sara Barrington, has just begun her new job with us, and we are so excited to have her on our staff! One of the things she thinks might help her (and us) most, right away, is to assemble a number of folks who’d be there for her when she needs help. Can we get maybe 8 or 10 of you to give her your name and number? If so, PLEASE email her directly at saramac1128@gmail.com, or call/text her at 508-496-8919. (This is SO AWESOME!)

 

Believe it or not, ASH WEDNESDAY IS ALMOST HERE! And it’s February 14! (They’ve cancelled St Valentine’s Day on February 14 this year, and plugged in Ash Wednesday instead!) We’ll have two services on Ash Wednesday, one at NOON and the other at SIX PM—so please come for your imposition of ashes, and begin your Lent in a meaningful way…

 

Other Lenten items to note:

 

We’ll be having a LENTEN EVENSONG on Tuesday, February 20 at 5:30 pm, so put that on your calendars, come, and enjoy the beautiful music with a Lenten vibe.

 

We’re offering FREE Lenten daily meditation booklets, as usual, and this time it’s on a perfect topic: FORGIVENESS! Practicing Forgiveness with All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind is the title, from our friends at Living Compass. Pick up your copy beginning Sunday, February 4…

…and since FORGIVENESS lies at the heart of all we do as Christians, Father Chip (at least currently) plans to set aside a large round table at each Breakfast in Between (9 am) each Sunday to discuss our week’s readings… stay tuned for details!

 

We’re forming a new LENTEN BOOK STUDY GROUP—AND IT’S A GREAT ONE! Beginning the week of February 25, we’ll be discussing PRACTICE OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD, a spiritual classic that has been wonderfully translated—for a new generation of readers—by renowned scholar Carmen Acevedo Butcher. We highly recommend you consider joining us—Father Chip has left some information on the table in the Parish Hall describing the book, so check it out, GO AHEAD AND ORDER YOUR COPY (Amazon worked well for Father Chip), and sign up on the list in the Parish Hall. NOTE: this may be new sledding for some of you, so give it a whirl—you’ll be SO glad you DID!
