Announcements Through March 30th, 2014

*The ECW will have a Casserole/Bake Sale TODAY Sunday, March 23 after the morning Masses. Book Sale also included today.

**TODAY ~ Sunday, March 23, Social Action regular committee meeting follows 10:15 am Mass, Womble Library. Everyone is welcome as we explore a few small practicalities of living the Lenten fast [noting that Isaiah recommends letting the oppressed go free, breaking every yoke, sharing bread with the hungry, bringing the homeless poor into your house, and covering the naked – [Isaiah 58: 6-9.] Agenda items to Peggy Van Norman,

**Sunday, March 30, following Morning Masses, we’ll assemble food packs for Tucson Samaritans to give migrants in distress in the desert. What can you bring? Gallon jugs of water, March 23 and 30th only. Just put them in the gold chest in the back of church. You don’t have to have a final opinion on all the nuance of immigration to give food to the hungry and a lifesaving cup of water to the thirsty.

** St. Michael’s Guatemala Project’s small summer teams are filling fast, and we would like another parishioner or two if possible. Team 1 (June 3-20) is full, primarily with U of A medical students and their MD advisor. Team 2 (June 24-July17) has two slots available. We are very happy to add UA student Taylor Nash, grand-daughter of the Parish , to this team. Team 3 (July 21-August 6) has space available and will be somewhat less physically demanding than th*e others. Interested? Ask Coordinator Ila Abernathy for details, 623-3063,
Lenten Soup Suppers began on Wednesday, March 12th at 6:30 PM at the House of Prayer, preceded by Evening Prayer at the House of Prayer. You are invited for a simple soup supper followed by discussion of the book “Unabashedly Episcopalian” by Bishop Andrew Doyle. The books are available for purchase ($10) on the Usher’s table or on Wednesday at the House of Prayer. All are invited for this special Lenten Study.


Please come and join us for a reception following the
Taize service April 1st at 6:45 pm.

We are celebrating now, well into our 4th year of continuous Taize services held the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month  Taize is a service of Prayers, Songs, Readings, Silence, and Music. This quiet, meditative service is also a great way to observe Lent.

Any other suggestions you may have of other ways we could promote this would be appreciated.
Thanks for all your support and perseverance in everything you do.
