Adult Christian Ed will begin again on Tuesday, February 24. Dinner is from 5:45p-6:45p with study to follow until 8p. During Lent, we will study three things: (1) What it means to be a Christian; (2) What it means to be an Episcopalian/Anglican; (3) What it means to be a member of Annunciation. This week we will study an overview of Anglicanism and the Episcopal Church.
Feast Day of the Annunciation
Our parish feast day will be celebrated on Sunday, March 22. Bishop Jim Brown, retired bishop of our diocese, will preach that Sunday. A luncheon will follow in Vail Hall. Please see Maureen Young or Robin Yeager to sign up to bring a dish and help with clean up. Bishop Brown will also bless the rectory.
Volunteer Ministry Update
This week, we were notified at Rotary Club of New Orleans will donate up to $6,000 towards Together by Design’s trip in May. Together by Design is a group of students in the trades and engineering students from Newfoundland, Canada. They have come down for the past eight years. Our architect, Peter Waring, was instrumental in securing this donation from Rotary. A big thank you to him and Rotary!
As of today, we will host 462 volunteers from January 01 through July 31, 2015. Our goal is 520. The ministry is off to a great 10th year! A big thank you to Robin Yeager, Robert Perry, Noel Prentiss, Chef Earl Fontan, and Elliott Williams for their hard work to get us to this point.
