A Message from Rev. Brian
Next week we begin the season of Lent. We will hold our annual Shrove Pancake Supper on Tuesday at 6:00 PM. Services on Ash Wednesday will be at 12:00 Noon and 7:00 PM.
Lent is a time of preparation and renewal- for those seeking initiation at the Easter Vigil and for us to renew our Baptismal Vows on Easter Day. Our Gospel readings are rich with both Penitential and Baptismal themes. We will journey with the woman at the well, the man born blind, and Jesus’ friend Lazarus.
A mailing was sent to all registered households this week. The mailing included a number of opportunities for growth this Lent: A trip to the Monastery, a discussion on the Holy Land, Taize Prayer and more. If you did not receive the mailing, please register with our parish: www.goodshepherdreading.org. Look for the link: REALM. Realm is our new parish census/database.
On Sunday, we will sing our final Alleluias until Easter!
