Easter Vigil carpooling

We will meet at Christ Church at 6:30 pm to carpool to the Great Vigil of Easter at the Cathedral of St Paul in Erie on Saturday 23 April 2011. Those being confirmed/received must be there at 7:30. The actual Vigil begins at 8:10. The odd hour is sunset in Erie.

Palm Sunday

The Palm Sunday liturgy began with the Palm Sunday procession welcoming Jesus to Jerusalem, otherwise known as the Holy Pretzel.
Tom read the part of Jesus.
Richard was resplendent in the red of Palm Sunday.
And so Holy Week begins. The Maundy Thursday eucharist will be followed by the Agape Feast. Bring wine, nuts, fruit, olives, cheese, crackers, etc.

The Good Friday liturgy will be at noon. Anyone who works and would like to attend the 7:00 pm Good Friday liturgy at Holy Cross in North East is welcome to ride with Shelley. Let her/me know before 4 pm on Friday.

The Easter Vigil will be celebrated at the Cathedral of St Paul in Erie where three Christ Church people will become received/confirmed. If you need a ride, check the easel by the office or call/email Shelley.

Help bail out our previous Senior Warden

Tom will be arrested and thrown in "jail" on Thursday, 14 April 2011. Christ Church is pooling contributions to bail him out. Send your check to Christ Church by Tuesday, 12 April so we can present a big check for Muscular Dystrophy. Mark "jail" so we know what it is for.

Todo notices for Christ Church

1. Put "outside cleanup" on your calendar for this Saturday, 16 April. If you aren't interested in gardening, come and help explore the cupboards in the kitchens. We'll be there at 9 am.

2. Don't forget Palm Sunday, especially if you have agreed to read one of the parts.

3. Money for Easter flowers is due in the office on Monday. Bring your check (memoed Easter Flowers) Sunday. Be sure to include the name(s) memorialized or honored plus the donor.

4. We will have the traditional Agape Feast after the Maundy Thursday eucharist. There is a list on the easel by the office to sign telling us what you will bring. You are attending.

5. There is another list on the easel for people who will be driving and those who need a ride to Easter Vigil at the Cathedral in Erie on Saturday, 23 April. Sunset will be at 8:10 so that is when the Vigil will begin. It would be wonderful to have a large Christ Church group to support our new members who will be received/confirmed then.

Laetare Sunday, Mothering Sunday, Rose Sunday

Hopeful signs of spring

Hopefully all the debris will get cleaned up in two weeks. But rain tomorrow and more snow is possible Tuesday morning. Our farmers can't work the mud.
