Events and News: LENTEN SERIES: During Lent, Simeon will lead us in discussions of the theme “LOVE IS…” We will talk about all the many ways God’s love shows up in our lives leading up to the ultimate revelation of God’s love for us at Easter. The series begins this Sunday at 9:45 in the library and will continue each Sunday through Lent. VESTRY MEETING THIS SUNDAY AFTER CHURCH: All are welcome; we will be joined by the Right Rev. Paul E. Lambert.
LENTEN ALMS: Every Sunday during Lent the plate offering and any designated checks will be collected for Lenten Alms. This week’s recipient is IMMIGRANTS DEFENSE PROJECT,an organization that works to secure fairness and justice for immigrants in the U.S. “We aim to abolish a racially biased criminal legal system that violates basic human rights and an immigration system that every year tears hundreds of thousands of immigrants with convictions from their homes, their families, and their communities.”(www.immigrantdefenseproject.org) To donate to The Immigrant Defense Project, please write your check to Holy Comforter, designating Lenten Alms in the memo line MESSAGE FROM THE STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE: Our stewardship encompasses more than our pledges of money and time to Holy Comforter and more than our care for the Creation. As God’s stewards we are called upon to love and care for our neighbors. One way to do that is to contribute to Holy Comforter’s Lenten alms, which will help to support our immigrant neighbors, give comfort to those on Death Row, help organizations working with poverty and mental health issues, and support those working to protect the environment.
