Happy Friday faith family! I hope that this last week of Epiphany is treating you well. Are you ready for Lent? There are some ideas in this week’s helper on how to have a meaningful Lenten season. Please be sure to pick up your copy of Fr Howie’s virtual Lenten Retreat “Into the Desert” along with a rock, found in the back of the sanctuary.
Here is the link to the Carpenter’s Helper for the week of February 23, 2020.
I will be out of town next week, returning on Tuesday March 3, 2020. Thanks to the wonderful volunteers, the office will be open. I will be checking email periodically, however if you have a time sensitive question or concern, please reach out to Fr. Howie.
There are a few calendar reminders:
o The New 6 Week Series, An Absurdly Short History of Christianity, continues this Sunday, February 23, 2020 at 9 a.m. in the music room (change of venue from the parlor to the music room because of a great interest in this series!)
