MUSIC & MEDITATION


Thursdays in Lent at 11 am, beginning March 7 and continuing each Thursday through April 11, join us for a half hour of Music and Meditation. Rich will provide the organ music, and will have handouts featuring one of the readings appointed for the day. We’ll also have tables set up in the Undercroft and a pot of coffee on for anyone who wishes to enjoy a brown bag lunch after the half hour program

 

 

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

 

Join us for Stations of the Cross TONIGHT and every Monday evening at 7 pm in the Church . Stations is an ancient practice in the Church, springing from a time when it was impractical/dangerous to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to follow the traditional steps of the Via Dolorosa (Jesus’s journey from his arrest through his crucifixion, death, and entombment). In this lovely 30 minute prayer service, participants walk from station to station through the church, window by window, hear a short passage of scripture that pertains to that Station, and pray about its significance in the here and now. For those who have been touched by our Surprised By Hope series, it’s a way of contemplating Christ With Us, Heaven on Earth, “heaven-ing” our lives in the here and now. This prayer service is finished in time for Fr. Tom’s Bible Study at 7:30 in the Library.

 

 

PALM CROSS DAY

 

Saturday, April 13 at 10:00 am. Save the date. This beloved St. David’s tradition of folding palm fronds into crosses for distribution on Palm Sunday will take place in the Undercroft on the Saturday morning before Palm Sunday. It will be here before we know it! Mark your calendars now. Tutorials will be available. In addition to Palm crosses distributed to those who attend our 3 services that Sunday, we also distribute them to homebound parishioners. Give us an hour on your busy Saturday morning, enjoy fellowship, and help make Holy Week especially meaningful for our St. David’s family.


FIRST QUARTER VESTRY UPDATE APRIL 7

 

The Vestry had an excellent retreat at the Nicholas Center on March 15-16. Join us, following the 9:30 service on Sunday, April 7. In addition to a Financial snapshot and update on goals and plans for calendar year 2019, Rev. Sue will also update the congregation on the procedure the diocese will use to elect a new bishop in 2020.

 

 

FOOD WITH FRIENDS

 

Join us Tuesday, March 19 at 5:30 in the Undercroft. What better way to celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph than with the delicious food prepared by the Interact Club of Glenbrook South High School? This is the next-to-the-last Food With Friends for this school year. April 16 will be the final Food With Friends until September 17. You are cordially invited to the fabulous food and fellowship with some amazing high school students.

 


KNITWITS 

 

The KNITWITS (aka, needlework guild) meet Thursday nights from 7-8:30 pm. This week, we will be meeting in the Parish Library, as Rev. Sue will be out of town. Otherwise, we typically meet in the Rector’s office. Some of us are working on caps or scarves for use by mariners (via Seamen’s Church Institute Christmas on the River project) or by homeless people via Connections for the Homeless or Night Ministries. One of us is crocheting sleeping mats for homeless people using plastic grocery bags (aka “plarn”) and a giant crochet hook. Still others of us are working on projects for friends and family and are enjoying the sociability of the Guild.


If you’d like to knit caps or scarves, the patterns we are using call for US Size 6 or 7 knitting needles (straight or round), and worsted weight yarn – preferably acrylic or acrylic-wool blend. (Michael’s or JoAnn’s are good resources for inexpensive yarn). 


Whether you are a novice or an expert, come and join us! Trouble-shooting and tutoring are available.
