SHROVE TUESDAY AND ASH WEDNESDAY NEWS

SHROVE TUESDAY!!!

Party! Party! February 28th is Shrove Tuesday wherein we traditionally eat up all the fats before Lent wherein we are to lose all our fat.

But pancakes? Say nay! Again, this year the Breakfast Club will whip up some scrumptious N’Orlins gumbo as we say goodbye

to Epiphany and prepare ourselves for seven weeks of Lent. So, come by the parish hall between 6 & 8PM on Tuesday, February 28th and let’s celebrate.

The suggested donation is $5 per person and $10 per family.

 

 

ASH WEDNESDAY

Ash Wednesday is March 1st. Services of the Holy Eucharist and Imposition of Ashes will be offered at 12PM and 7:30PM.

Casino Night Sponsor Recognition:

We all like to think that we’re responsible for our own success here at St. Andrew & St. Charles, but we couldn’t do it without each other. Fellow parishioners, neighbors, friends, and family attend and contribute to our events. It also includes the wonderful businesses who provide financial support for our fundraisers. The 2016 Casino Night was the most successful ever and that is due in no small measure to everyone who generously donated gift cards, merchandise, and tickets to events. Let’s take a moment and recognize each of the businesses for their recent donations. In a city filled with so many choices, please keep these businesses in mind when you eat, drink or shop nearby. Without their continued generosity, it would be difficult, if not impossible, to sustain our long-running food pantry program, annual holiday meals for low income residents of the Olive Branch Assisted Living facility, and a host of our other community ministry outreach efforts.  They are truly valued members of our faith community.

BLESSINGS IN A BAG

Blessings in a Bag

On the first Sunday of each month, you will have an opportunity to make and/or take one, two, or more Blessings in a Bag.  Please stop by the Parish Hall after the 8:00 or 10:00 service to get your bag(s).  This is a wonderful way to help others in need and brighten someone's day!  Also, donations are always accepted to help purchase and/or replenish our supplies.  There is a list of the basic ingredients on the table with the supplies - feel free to take one and keep it with you when you go to the market.  Ask Marsha Van Valkenburg or Monica Ward any questions you may have.
