Wednesday Eucharist Clarification

I just wanted to clarify some things about our Wednesday evening service, especially during Lent.  The 6 p.m. Eucharist is still the 12-Step Spirituality Eucharist.  All are welcome whether a person is in recovery or not.  We can all learn and benefit from 12-Step Spirituality.  Those who attend the 6 p.m. Eucharist are not expected to stay for the Stations of the Cross or the Soup Supper/Discussion unless they want to.  Each segment is optional!

On Wednesday, April 2nd, we will have the 6 pm Recovery Eucharist but we will NOT have the Stations and Soup Supper because we are invited that evening by St. John's LaVerne to attend their Lenten Evening on Outreach where we will learn about Laundry Love.  Those planning to attend that evening at St. John's should plan to be at St. John's by 6.  The Eucharist will be for those who are not going to St. John's or who want to come late with me (about 6:45).  There will be a sign-up list this coming Sunday in the church for those who will be attending the evening at St. John's.

This Weekend at St. Paul's

This Weekend at St. Paul's

The time changes this coming Saturday night, so don't forget to set your clocks AHEAD one hour before you go to bed.  (Spring Forward/Fall Back).

We observe the First Sunday of Lent this Sunday.  The church is set in Lenten mode, to appear more barren and desert-like.  All sacred images are covered, altars are arrayed in burlap and purple, the Liturgy and Music is more reflective.  There are no bells rung and no alleluias sung during Lent and no piano voluntary or postlude.  We depart each service quietly and proceed to coffee hour.  Also no flowers in the church.  In place of bells, we clap two pieces of wood together to remind us of the wood of the cross.
