 Bishop Whayne Visits St. Gregory’s

On Sunday, February 18th, we will welcome Bishop Whayne Houghland when he presides at the 10am service, the only service, that day. Following the service will be a parish-wide potluck and social time with the Bishop. For the meal, parishioners are asked to donate side dishes and desserts. Sign-up sheets are in the Narthex to help organize the food needed. Pulled pork bar-b-ques will be the main feature of the meal. Beverages will also be furnished.
Kitchen helpers are also needed. See Linda Scheerer to offer your help. The Bishop will meet with the Vestry and spouses for dinner on Saturday night.

Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. In Western Christianity, Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season of Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter (Sundays are not included in the count).


Lent Soup & Bread Lunch & a Movie

This year’s Wednesday noon Lenten program will offer something different than in year’s past. Beginning at Noon with participant-prepared soup & bread lunch, the program will feature the movie “All Saints”, the true story of a struggling Episcopal Church in Smyrna, Tennessee, that was brought back to life by immigrants from Burma. The movie will be divided into 5 parts to allow for discussion at each session. Feel free to invite family and/or friends who might enjoy the program. Linda Scheerer is coordinating the soup and bread donations. See her to sign up to provide a meal.
