Final Words from the Cross Join Fr. Tara for this weekly series in Lent, Tuesdays at 1:30 p.m. in the parish hall beginning Feb. 24. Delve into the significance of Jesus' "last" words for us, including "Father, forgive them", our topic for the 24th. Intentional last words come weighted with such significance. This is a new DVD series by acclaimed author and Methodist pastor Adam Hamilton. Honor Jesus' sacrifice with your commitment to stand with him at the cross.
Stations of the Cross are walked in the church Wednesdays in Lent at 5:30 p.m. It's about a half-hour; all are welcome.
Forty Minutes, a between-the-services adult educational program, is taking a new look at the Old Testament. The featured lecturer for the series is Amy-Jill Levine, Professor of New Testament Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School. If you haven't really thought much about the Hebrew Scriptures since your days at Sunday School, you are in for a few surprises in this series.
These lectures are scholarly but presented in a way that is approachable; no academic rigors are expected of participants at Forty Minutes. All are welcome to join us in a quest to discover new insights into the scriptures that Jesus embraced. Sessions are from 9:40 to 10:30 a.m.
Tickets are now on sale for the Paul Todd and Paul Todd Jr. concert on Thursday March 12 at 7 p.m. Come and enjoy another dynamic evening of music which will include original, classical, popular and patriotic selections.

There's a pancake breakfast every first Saturday of the month (next one is Saturday, March 7) at the Farmers' Market. Come join us. More about the market here.
Ladies of the church and friends gathered for an afternoon of fashion and tea, featuring the gently used fashion designer clothing that is for sale at the Unique Boutique at the Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings. The event combined fun and a good cause!
And that means the activities are ramped up. The Farmers' Market, Gift Shop, Unique Boutique, men's group, ECW, God's Gardeners, yoga and t'ai chi are in full swing. As to Sunday worship, we're back to three services. Everyone's busy getting ready for entertaining guests from the cold north. If you are wondering what to with your time, ask your neighbor at mass this Sunday. Perhaps he or she will invite you to participate in one of our many activities.
