Thank you to all those who helped in so many ways to clean out, organize, and follow through with the yard sale yesterday. It was a lot of hard work and your devotion and hands have been very much appreciated.  There will be another sale on Saturday, February 20th to finish off this cycle.  If you have any items you would like to give for the next sale, you may bring them by just about any time but please contact one of the wardens or the rector to make arrangements.  

Notice - The Annual Vestry Meeting – will take place following the Eucharist on Sunday, February 28th to receive reports regarding the work of the parish as well as our financial statements; elect wardens and parish council and look to our future. There will be finger food and tea/coffee to quench our appetite and thirst.
