Volunteers and Revelers Needed
On the day before Lent begins, come and eat all the pancakes and sausage you can, enjoy live brass music and pancake races. Beginning at 5:30 p.m. kids can do Mardi Gras style crafts, we’ll dance the chicken dance and sing our last “Alleluia” until its return at the Easter Vigil. Supper will be served from 6:00 until 7:00 p.m. If you can help shop, cook or clean up at the supper, please contact Marie Monroe.
The morning and noon services are short liturgies of 30 minutes. Sandwiches will be served after the 12:15 p.m. service. The 7:30 p.m. service will be over an hour.
Wanted: Soup Makers, Servers, and Diners Wednesdays
March 4-April 1, 5:30-6:20 p.m.
We look forward to our annual soup suppers on Wednesdays in Lent. We will enjoy a delicious variety of soups in the parish hall, served 5:30-6:20 p.m. Proceeds from our donations benefit our missionaries in Mexico, Pastor David and Alicia Brondos. Soup makers, servers and cleaner uppers please contact Beverly Davis (add her info) to volunteer.
After Soup: Vespers in the Nave
After dinner we move to the nave for Lenten Vespers, 6:30-7:15 p.m. Vespers at Christ the King Church follow the ancient Vespers liturgy including chanting the Magnificat and incense. With respect to respiratory sensitivity the best places are near the organ on the west side (courtyard). Our Lenten devotions this year invite worshipers to enter the wisdom, wisdom, faith, music and mystic illuminations of Hildegard of Bingen.

Well, aren’t we in a pickle! We had quite the positive sermon series begun between Pastor Karin and me, but now this! Two weeks ago I observed how Jesus gathers us together and makes us by his saying so “blessed” when we are mocked and persecuted for bearing his name.
