April 13 ~ April 20
The above concert , sung by your Parish Choir, will portray through music and readings the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. David Leahey will conduct the choir and Lewis Moore will provide accompaniment. The concert will last about one hour and will take place in the church sanctuary. Once again, the choir will sing from the chancel. Many of the anthems will be sung to tunes that are familiar. Most will be sung a cappella窶馬o organ accompaniment. The concert will be a quiet and meditative time for the parish. It will serve as a wonderful way to enter Holy Week and to mark the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord. Please plan to attend.

Decorating for Easter Saturday, April 19
Volunteers are needed to help with decorating the church for Easter. We will also need someone that can climb a ladder. Please meet in the sanctuary at 9:00am.
Decorating the Children’s Cross Note for children and parents: Please remember to bring flowers to decorate the cross on Easter Day (April 20) at the 9:00am and 11:00sm services. Do not wrap them in foil as it take time to remove the wrapping when we have such a short time and many children.
Come and join us for the Children’s Stations of the Cross, a form of devotion observed by pilgrims to Jerusalem. Participants will walk the way of eight stations offering prayers at a series of places in that city associated with our Lord’s passion and death. Our middle and high school parishioners will be our guides on Good Friday (April 18) at 4pm on the lawn closest to the old church site. Long awaited grandchild
