Winter Inquirers ClassOur next Winter Inquirers Class will be this Sunday at 9:15 am in the Annex. The topic of our conversation will be “Worship in the Episcopal Church.” All are welcome!
Y’all Come SundayNext Sunday, February 24, is “Y’all Come Sunday” at St. Catherine’s, a special day for inviting family and friends to attend worship. Please make a special effort to invite anyone you know who might be searching for a church family. A special reception will be held after the 10:30 am service. Invitations are available in the Narthex if you haven’t already picked them up.
Mardi Gras PartyMark your calendars now for Tuesday, March 5! We will celebrate Mardi Gras at St. Catherine’s with a Cajun-inspired dinner at 6:00 pm. An online sign-up sheet will be available soon for those who would like to volunteer to bring dishes to share for dinner. After dinner, we will prepare for Ash Wednesday services by burning the leftover palm fronds from last year’s Palm Sunday service. So, plan to bring your leftover palm fronds to the Mardi Gras party.
Ash Wednesday ServicesServices for Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the Lenten season will be on Wednesday, March 6, at 12:00 noon and 7:00 pm. In addition, Father Eric will offer “Ashes to Go” in the Winn-Dixie parking lot, beginning at 7:00 am on Ash Wednesday. Volunteers are needed to help with this. Speak with Father Eric.
