February 17th is Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras (6pm on Zoom)—let’s wear all the purple/yellow/green we can, make pancakes to eat together, and “bury the Alleluias”. Color the butterflies and be ready for our simple liturgy at 7pm.



Begin the call to a Holy Lent on Ash Wednesday, February 17th.

Worship with either church on Facebook Streaming, and then stop by the church after and walk through to receive Ashes and a Blessing.

You'll be able to pick up your Lent Kit on the way out.

  • St. James--online service at 12noon. Church open to walk through for Ashes/Blessings from 1-2pm.

  • St. John's--online service at 5pm. Church open to walk through for Ashes/Blessings from 6-7pm.


Both churches are invited to attend either service.
