From the earliest years, Christians would mark the events leading up to Jesus’ death: his entrance into Jerusalem, turning over tables in the Temple, the Last Supper, Crucifixion and Resurrection. The Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil) come to …

We are edging towards spring (though there is plenty of cold weather ahead), and my daffodils are starting to poke through the earth. I love seeing the flowers begin to pop up at church, reminders that even though it is cold now, it won’t be forever. With the arrival of April comes the fast approach …

This Sunday is the start of Daylight Saving! I hope you set your clocks forward an hour on Saturday evening, or you’ll be an hour late to service. This marks two years since the beginning of our Covid shutdown, and I believe that we are beginning to see glimmers of hope. The infection rate in …

We have entered into the season of Lent – a penitential season full of fasting, praying and almsgiving. It is traditional during Lent to take on practices that move us closer to God, perhaps giving up something so we can focus more on God, or taking on a practice that points us back to God. …

Sunday is our last Sunday before Lent, and we are going to celebrate with pancakes!
