St. Paul’s Lenten Series: EMBRACING FORGIVENESS- Father Brian will lead us in a five-week exploration of what forgiveness is, what it is not, and how to find it in our lives on both a personal and communal level. This popular new series was prepared by Episcopal priest, spiritual director and author, Barbara Cawthorne Crafton, and is presented in a warm, honest and practical manner. Five Saturdays from March 4 through April 1, 2017 at 12 noon. BYOL (Bring your own lunch) . We will meet in the Parish Hall.
Sunday, March 5 is a BIG day here! We’ll hold a 9:30 am service and view a recorded presentation of Presiding Bishop Curry’s sermon, delivered to those who attended his January Diocesan visit in Salinas. In the presentation, he speaks on “The Jesus Movement”. Vestry will also hold their first Sunday regular meeting.
Joe Golowka Memorial Service: Joe’s service will be incorporated into the 10:30 am Sunday service on March 19th. The family will host a gathering in the Parish Hall afterward. Please keep Phyllis and the Golowka family in your prayers.
Attn: Altar Guild, 8 am coffee hosts, and others frequenting our grounds on Saturdays: Retreat groups will visit on Saturday March 4 and Saturday March 25th. They will be using our labyrinth and library meeting area from 9 am to 4 pm. Please do not disturb. As a result, the Saturday morning confidential Al-Anon group will need to relocate upstairs to the Parish Hall on those dates. In an effort to guarantee the Al-Anon group’s privacy, please note: The parish hall is absolutely not available from 9:25 am to 11:25 am for coffee hour prep, etc. If you see activity or persons in the Hall, please do not inquire as to the nature of the meeting. Your cooperation is very much appreciated. Thank you!
