NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • RECTOR'S MESSAGE
    Dear Friends,

    As I think about so many events taking place in the community as we are in season, I think about time and relationships. I think God wants us to savor time, to live fully into it, and to relish the sweetness of each moment and those with whom we pass it.



    I pray that we do not fall into the traps of being hurried or anxious. If we do, we overlook the gift of now. And when we fill our time anxiously with activity, we overlook those who may be suffering or who may need us. When we give time to time, we can love more, both God and our neighbor.



    When we gather on February 11th for the Dinner Auction and Dance, I pray that we can use that time just to be with each other and to savor the moment, along with enjoying good food and music. If you have not purchased your ticket yet, please do so soon! If the cost is prohibitive, just send me a private note and give what you can. All are welcome.

    Yours in Christ,
    Fr. Jonathan Evans
