Dear People of Saint John’s,

Bishop Jeremiah Williamson’s Consecration Video and photos are up on the diocesan website! They can be found here! Enjoy and celebrate this new chapter in the life of our diocese.

Tonight, for our Lenten evening series, we will continue our Lenten series with dinner at 6 (Chicken Parmesan from Patricelli’s) and a film at 7. This year’s film is Sabbath, by documentary filmmaker Martin Doblmeier. The trailer can be found here. The full film can be found here; we discussed the first 20 minutes last week, and so it is easy to catch up!

As with last year’s film, we will watch this interfaith film in thoughtful 20-minute segments. Tonight, we will meet explore the connection between the Sabbath and healing in the Christian tradition, the relationship of the Sabbath to the labor movement, and journey with a pastor has he plans his sabbatical. This is a hybrid presentation; the link is below.

Our Lenten Candlelight Meditations continue this Friday from 5 to 6. We welcome the return of Ian Mace, on the euphonium, which sounds like a tenor French horn. Upcoming musicians are:
March 8, Dennis Kwarteng, Organ
March 15, Tiffany Dzembo, Soprano
March 22, Lauren Hunn, Piano
Invite a friend and come and bask for an hour in the beauty of holiness.

With gratitude for our life together,

Mother Judith
