The Lenten issue of Together Sharing Christ is now available.
The main avenue for distribution of this publication is on the website, though this link. However, TSC is mailed to all who cannot access it online or pick up copy in the back of church. The advantage of the online PDF version is you get the full benefit of seeing the artwork in color (and, of course, it saves paper). If you would like to change how you receive it, please send a note to Chris McCullough at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be changes in Lenten services this year! The Liturgy Committee heard the parish’s comments in last spring’s liturgy survey, and we’re responding.
Several of our long-standing services (Stations of the Cross, Good Friday and the all-night Easter Vigil) did not enjoy wide support in the parish. The Liturgy Committee has redesigned both Stations and Good Friday (come and see!). A list of all of our Lenten Formational Opportunities can be found here.
The Committee will use its summer retreat to evaluate the all-night vigil. For more information or to be involved with the new and revised events, contact John Helie at email@example.com.
We have spent the last six months conducting the Strategic Planning data collection effort and brought that phase to an end with a parish Town Meeting on January 26. Both the meeting handout and the full final report can be found on the Parish Council webpage. The Ad Hoc Strategic Planning Committee will meet in February and their proposed plan be presented to the parish at a Town Meeting on March 23. Need more information? Contact Audrey Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 443-627-8804.
St. V’s application for a Jesuit Volunteer Corps member was approved! We will begin the matching process in the spring, and the volunteer, who will work with us full time for a year, will start in August. In our application, we proposed that the volunteer would both work with our youth and in our many social programs, such as the Friday dinner, The Resource Exchange, our food pantry, men’s clothing ministry and our park.
The Jesuit Volunteer Corps offers women and men an opportunity to work full-time for justice and peace. Learn more about this organization at the JVC website.
