Easter Season

flowers with Christ in the background“Renewal of worship has rediscovered the value and significance of the Easter Season. Easter is not just “Easter Day,” it is the fifty days from Easter Day until the Day of Pentecost. During this season, Sundays might be better named ‘of Easter’ rather than ‘after Easter’ (‘The Third Sunday after Easter,’ for example, is better termed ‘The Fourth Sunday of Easter’).

Holy Week

Holy WeekIs it possible for the Christian today to contribute anything to the Holiness of Holy Week? No! The week is NOT holy because of anything we do, or don’t do. The week is Holy only because of the Sacred Events of the Passion of Christ Our Redeemer.  

Announcements

Easter Lilies: Easter flower envelopes are now on the table at the back of the nave and on the table in the parish hall. If you would like to have lilies placed in the church for Easter this year in honor or memory of someone, please fill out the envelope and place it in the offering plate or return it…

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper: Shrove Tuesday is quickly approaching, falling this year on February 17. That means St. John’s Annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper is upon us at which we celebrate the end of the Epiphany Season and prepare for the Lenten Fast. This is one of three fundraisers that we do as a parish each year. Therefore, it is imperative that all who can help do so, so that it will be a success. One of the main areas where help is needed is in selling tickets! Please see Jimmy Henry to get your tickets to sell!
