The presence and ministry of The Episcopal Church in Lake County since 1877.
Ash service will be at here at St. John’s.
St. John’s has been a Total Ministry parish for some time now. Total Ministry, also known as Shared Ministry or Ministry of the Baptized, refers to the idea that all of us who have been baptized in Christ are ministers of the Church. And all of us have been endowed by our Creator with talents and gifts, which we can use as Christ’s ministers. Through serving God and acting as Christ’s heart and hands in the world, we deepen our relationship with God. In the upcoming year, the Ministry Development Team looks forward to working with Mother Delia to improve and expand our activities toward the goal of developing and supporting all of us as ministers of the church.
The Food Closet needs donations of nonperishable foods, such as tuna, cereal, oatmeal, pasta and sauce, peanut butter, and other nutritious items. (At this time donations of rice and beans are not needed.) Monetary donations are also appreciated. Please consider making regular donations of food or money to the Food Closet as part of your Lenten discipline.
The Vestry meets today after the service. On , the Vestry will hold a retreat at the Hermitage. It is a time for envisioning and planning the course of the vestry and St. John’s for the year to come.
We are very pleased to announce that the Rev. Delia Fay has agreed to be our long-term supply priest. Mother Delia will be with us on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month and she will celebrate Palm Sunday, Easter and Pentecost with us throughout 2015 She drives from Chico to Lakeport and is accompanied by her adorable goldendoodle Sophie. Welcome Mother Delia!
