Lent/Holy Week/Easter

A word from our Dean.... The Newsletter ofThe Episcopal Cathedral of Saint John

Dear Cathedral Family,

Our Worship Life Sundays Holy Eucharist 8:30 Am, Rite 1 10:30 AM, Rite 2 (Church School Classes meet) Wednesday 12:10 PM, Holy Eucharist

The great season of rejoicing is at hand! Before the month is over we will celebrate Easter and the conquering of death and sin by our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of this we no longer have to be entrapped by sin or imprisoned by tyranny or appalled by death. And we can live in freedom. This is the very heart of our faith. But this blessing counts for little if we do not prepare for it. The opportunities of Holy Week (March 16-23) must not be overlooked. Not to take advantage of them is to cheat ourselves, to say nothing of what it might say of how we live out our relationship with Jesus. In addition, if we do not observe the mighty story of Jesus’ passion why would we want to celebrate Easter? I look forward to seeing the whole Cathedral family throughout this great week.

There is another event this month which is of importance. On Sunday, March 9th after the 10:30 Eucharist, we will have another Town Meeting with brunch to begin to share our ideas about a vision for our Cathedral. There were so many good ideas and reflections offered at the Annual Meeting last month that we want to begin to grab hold of them so that we can continue to move forward in doing the Lord’s work. Please call the Cathedral Office 401.331.4622 to make a reservation and to tell what you will contribute to the brunch. May God bless you as you share in the Easter victory. Faithfully,

Harry Krauss


From The Deacon’s Bench Welcome Spring!! At least with Easter coming so soon in the calendar, it seems like we can start to think about snow ending and planting to commence once again. We have done some interesting planting of our own this Lententide at the Cathedral of St. John. Chocolate for Lent has been the guide for a group of pilgrims to look at the meaning and importance of Lent in our everyday lives. For those who made the trip, I think we are coming away with some experiences and sharing that have allowed us to deepen our lives as Christians, enliven our relationship to others in the Christian community — and perhaps the wider world a bit, as well— and brought us some new insights and ideas to think about for our lives into the future. We have spent time considering where God leads us to become more authentic in our sacrificing, giving up and giving out to others. It has been time well spent and there is still a bit of it left. The other outstanding moment in our church this month has been the completion of the Underground Railroad Quilt. This was a project that was started to bring recognition to the fact that we are honoring the 200th anniversary of the ban on importation of slaves to this continent. It also was to recognize Black History Month. In this and other editions of The Record, we show some photos of the work done by this dedicated group, to produce this important tool for education and understanding. The dedication of the quilt took place on Sunday, February 17. There have already been calls to ask that the quilt be displayed at churches and schools, and it will also be on display at the UTO event at the Cathedral on March 10. So, as you can see, the quilt’s work is only beginning. My sincere thanks to all who made this project a success, from the cutters to the stitchers, to those who iron and those who encourage with their kind words; all worked together to produce a wonderful result. Mark Warter, Joyce Thorne and I worked on training acolytes, sub-deacons and vergers these past few weeks, and you will soon see new parishioners assisting in our Eucharistic celebrations. Thanks to Mark for his great work on the training and for those who participated in it. For those of you who haven’t done it yet, just let Mark know if you are still interested in training. And, as always, we thank all who work so diligently to prepare and participate in the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Your sister in Christ,

Deacon Barbara 1ST Annual Crafting & Art Festival The Cathedral of St. John 271 North Main Street Providence, RI The Cathedral of St. John is hosting a Crafting and Art Festival on Saturday, May 3, from 9AM to 3 PM. This will be a juried show and will showcase many fine local and regional vendors. It will benefit the Cathedral’s Restoration Fund. The Cathedral of St. John is currently one of The Ten Most Endangered Historical Sites of Providence Preservation Society, and is in dire need of repairs and renovation. One of the ways that we intend to raise funds for the Cathedral is by offering this event to the community. Please plan to come and support, not only your Cathedral, but also many fine local artisans! See YOU There!! 2

The Underground Railroad Quilt Pictures of the Dedication and the Exhibit on Black History Sunday

10:30 Eucharist members explaining the Signature/Story Panel

8:30 Eucharist members of the Project The Underground Railroad Quilt was dedicated on Sunday, February 17, 2008. Since that time, it has been on view as part of a wider display at the Cathedral of St. John’s Annual Black History Month Sunday display on February 24. It was exhibited at the Diocesan Convocation February 29 - March 1. It will be traveling throughout the Diocese and will soon be seen at Paul Cuffee School in Providence, both for the children and for those attending the 5th Annual Paul Cuffee Day celebration and the opening of the new library and recognition of Rosalind C (Posey) Wiggins, longtime member of our Cathedral parish. For us, the dedication of our work on this project to Posey was a very important part of what we did. (Cont’d. on page 5) 4


The Sunday School Update

Dear Friends and Families of The Cathedral of St. John Church School, During this month we have begun to focus on the season of Lent. The sessions — in Lent — come from the Gospel according to St. John. The children will hear these stories again as they grow up, so we can dip into the parts that will speak to them now. We have worked on exploring ways in which we make decisions in our lives, and in encouraging ourselves and each other to make good decisions, that are healthy, positive and helpful in our lives. To begin, we have really reflected on finding in each day something that we demonstrate gratitude for, those things that help us feel loved, safe and joyful. We have been focusing on taking this to gaining a sense not in the “seeing is believing” , but making a choice to risk that “in believing we can really see” all the wonder and the goodness that we have within us, and around us. We can then take it to the next level of actively sharing and growing our gratitude and our kindness. Peace be with you, Santana Sluss

Musical Notes Dear Cathedral Friends, I am very pleased that our Adult Choir is progressing along with several unison anthems that we will sing in the coming weeks. Next week we begin rehearsing the music for Holy Week. Search for new sections leaders are also in the works. I’m very excited about a concert series that we are planning that will be part of the Water Fire schedule. I will be collaborating with Dr. John Laughton of the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth and his many years of experience of running concert series. We hope to attract people with a variety of different styles music such as Gospel, Jazz, Concert Piano and Organ and traditional choral groups. Our gospel ensemble sang my arrangement of “Shall We Gather at the River” Sunday Feb. 24 for Black History Month. I thought they sang very well. I will be away for Sunday March 3rd attending a retirement celebration for concert organist Dr. Delbert Disselhorst of the University of Iowa. The weekend with be attended by university professors of organ music from all of the country. My colleague, Brian Larkin will be substituting in my place. Please give him your warmest welcome.

Christian Formation for the Cathedral Family On Sundays at 9:45 AM, there is a forum for adult Christian Formation in Synod Hall, from September through the beginning of June. Her are the courses for the 2007-2008 seasons: The King and His Cross March 2, 9 Most of the deep realities of life can only be expressed in warm, imaginative, poetic language. For this reason, the Church has used metaphorical language in giving shape to our profoundest convictions about God. As we prepare for the great Easter feast, we will look at some of these metaphors which reveal what Christ endures on his way to the cross. A Once-And-Coming Spirit at Pentecost March 30, April 6, 13, 20, 27 May 4 As we move from Easter to pentecost, it is helpful to look at the two great books; John and Acts, from which many of the liturgical readings come. They show us how to be branches of Jesus’ vine and how to apply the biblical message to the challenges which face us each day. The Bible as Prayer May 11, 18, 25 June 1 The Bible can be an excellent aid in prayer. Since the 3rd century, Christians have meditated on short phrases from the Scriptures. Anyone in any place can indulge in this form of meditation. It’s easy and might even be life-changing!

A Message from the Episcopal Church Women of the Cathedral of St. John Please join us in the ministry of the United Thank Offering (UTO). This is a method by which all of us may give thanks for daily blessings from God. Please take a blue box on the shelf in the Narthex and, as you consider your blessings from God, place a coin or two in the box, as an acknowledgement of your daily blessings from God. Monies collected will be used to award grants for various projects in the Diocese of Rhode Island. The Ingathering will take place in May, 2008. “Gracious God, source of all creation, all love, all true joy; accept, we pray, these outward signs of our profound and continuing thankfulness for all of life. Keep each of us ever thankful for all the blessings of joy and challenges that come our way. Bless those who will benefit from these gifts through the outreach of the United Thank Offering. This we ask, through Him who is the greatest gift and blessing all, Jesus Christ, AMEN.” —The United Thank Offering Prayer

Diversity Committee BLACK HISTORY MONTH OBSERVED

As large and lively group of parishioners gathered in Synod Hall on Sunday, February 24th, as the Cathedral community continued its observation of February as Black History month, with a display of Black historical artifacts, collectables, and literature. Members of the Cathedral including Christine Watts, Al Martin, and Frank Walker each shared several items of interest. Wilmar Jennings provided some truly interesting materials about the Church of the Savior, which was the House of Worship for many African-American Episcopalians for much of the first half of the 20th century, and the first church of a number of present and former members of the Cathedral. Anna Moniz-John, the former affirmative action officer for the City of East Providence, also participated in the event, which was organized by the Diversity Committee. Ms. Moniz-John, a noted local collector and lecturer on African-American history, shared many rare and interesting pieces of memorabilia. In addition, she spoke at length to an appreciative gathering of visitors to the display. The Diversity Committee extends its thanks to all who attended, and to those who contributed time and materials to this event. The Committee is especially grateful to Ms. Moniz-John.

Final Pledge Activity Report for 2007 One hundred thirty-two (132) individuals signed pledge cards to support the current parish budget. Five (5) individuals, approximately 4% of the total pledge group, signed pledge cards but did not make any contributions toward their pledge obligations. All of these individuals submitted pledge cards indicated that they would contribute on weekly basis. A loss of budgeted income of $1,870. resulted because these individuals failed to fully honor their pledges. Sixty-four (64) individuals, approximately 48% of the total pledge group, signed pledge cards and made contributions but at the end of calendar year were all in arrears in varying amounts totaling $25,970. Sixty-three (63) individuals approximately 47% of the total pledge group, faithfully met their pledge obligation and in certain cases generously exceeded it.

-Thoughts from the Senior WardenDear Friends, The number of good wishes and gracious offers of help I’ve received in my new role here at the cathedral have been heartwarming and I thank you all very much. As I’m settling in, I’ve been giving much thought to the issues facing us as a parish – the most prominent, of course, being our shortage of funds. One of the areas I’d like to see us pursue is that of fund-raising activities – not only to offset our shortfall, but also because they can be enriching and engaging opportunities for us to work together as a family. We need some fun, interesting, (and preferably profitable) ideas. If you have thoughts in this regard, or any other, please share them with me in person, by phone (401-949-2364), or by email (leahnastasi@cox.net) We have an interesting, culturally rich, and multi-talented parish family and we must work to preserve it. The best thing we can do for this family is to collectively step up to the plate and swing for the fence. Working together, there’s no end to what we can accomplish. Please plan to attend the next parish meeting on March 9th. Your input is greatly needed in shaping our future. I pray that I’ll see you there. God’s Peace To All

The Junior Warden’s Report Cathedral of St. John – Providence, RI Junior Warden’s Report: 2/24/2008 Greetings fellow parishioners! Winston and I have created a list of repairs and maintenance items to help us get a better handle on what needs to be done. If interested, copies are available for everyone’s review. My first few weeks “on the job” have certainly not been uneventful. Fortunately I’ve had the benefit of some seasoned assistance from our staff. Here’s how it went. Heat: Our impressive old boiler lost a circulator pump earlier this month which meant we were without heat one Sunday morning. We were able to get emergency burner service to temporarily plug a leak and restore heat to 3 of the 4 zones in the Cathedral. The circulator has been replaced, but the leak is a job the must wait until the warmer weather for repair (cost estimate to follow). Another casualty of that weekend was the sump pump in the boiler room. When the circulator pump went the leaking water filled the sump but the pump is burnt out and needs to be replaced. We’ll need to get the model and price a new one to replace it with. Drainage: Our first Wednesday evening gathering for “simple supper” was greeted by a flood of almost Biblical proportions. From what I’ve gathered this has been a reoccurring problem over the years during heavy rain and flowing from the closet in the “handicap accessible” bathroom outside of Synod Hall. We have had three plumbers in to examine this “spring” and two of the three believe the problem to be one of drainage rather than a leaking pipe. In addition, Winston is spending much too much time babysitting the floor drain outside of the kitchen door whenever we get significant rain. We’ve had the drain cleaned on two occasions but the problem continues. It is believed this is due to the fact that people deposit items in the drain that cause blockage. We vacuumed out the pipe as far as the wet-vac hose would extend and bolted a perforated metal screen over the opening, but the water still will not drain quickly enough to keep up with moderate amounts of rain. We’ve received a quote from Mr. Rooter to inspect drains (for blockages, breaks etc.) via CCTV and provide up to 2 hours of high pressure drain cleaning for $968.68. The expectation being that we will be able to discover the source of these drainage issues by this inspection. It’s important that we solve these problems to keep water from entering the building and causing further damage. We’ll be focusing attention on getting this set of repairs taken care of during the coming weeks. Please feel free to speak with me regarding these or other issues you know of so they can be added to “the list”. All assistance is welcomed! Andy Costa 11

Gailia Rutan-Annaldo’s Final report to The Annual Meeting I’m retiring— again— from the position I’ve held for about ten years. This time I’ll turn in the keys; last time they wouldn’t let me! I remember coming to this Cathedral the Sunday after Easter, 1994. I walked through those red doors and stood in silence for a moment. I clearly heard a voice saying, “You are needed here.” I looked around and saw no one. I went up the stairs and saw one or two people who had come early and were already sitting in the pews. Now, I could go quietly and smile and say, “Thanks for the Memories!” BUT, if you really know me, you know I must have something to say! We are at a crossroad; one road goes uphill, one goes downhill; one goes nowhere, just fades away and the other one is a dead-end. Which road is it to be? Attendance is up a bit on some Sundays; or is it down? Pledges are made but not filled. Why is there to be a Warden for JUST ONE YEAR??? The Sunday School teacher needs a helper. Aren’t there at least 6 people who could serve on a rotation basis? We are happy in our diversity…….. So why does coffee hour often look like a segregated restaurant???? The Food Pantry doesn’t have enough food for the hungry who show up every Saturday. How do they eat on the other days? Why is the Food Pantry money donation basket empty EVERY WEEK???? The roof got fixed——- but the Endowment had to be raided to pay for most of it. Our endowment doesn’t grow because we have to use it to balance the budget. WHY? For more than a few years we have had some boarded up windows. That was supposed to be a temporary thing, but we have become so accustomed to those boarded up windows that we hardly notice them anymore. What’s up with that? I reflect on these and many more questions every day as I pray for guidance , strength and courage for all of us. We are at a crossroads; which way are we going? Which way do you want to go? I love you all more than you will ever know. Thank you. Gailia Rutan-Annaldo Retired Junior Warden

Lenten Thoughts By Adrienne Southgate

During Lent, I went to a wonderful day-long retreat at the Society of St. Margaret, the community of Episcopal religious in Boston. It was entitled “Praying the Psalms in Lent” and we considered three specific psalms on repentance, forgiveness and trust, reading various translations and then discussing how each psalm applied in our own lives. During the quiet reflective time we had after each address, we were given the opportunity to journal or think carefully about some questions the retreat director had posed. After the final address, it was suggested that we try our hands at writing a psalm of our own. Several suggestions were given, one of which was to try an “acrostic” psalm, so that the letter beginning each verse would spell something, e.g. TRUST, or perhaps would go right through the alphabet (which is what Psalm 119 does). I decided to try this, and I’d like to share my effort with you: A Winter Psalm For once, dear Lord, I choose to pray Even though my spirit feels Buried under the onslaught of daily tasks and heavy snow. Rejoicing leaks past the barriers of cold and routine. Uplifted despite myself, may I be Awakened to the deeper truth Resting in this frozen earth: You are spring, to world and soul.
