Hello Old Donation!
It's been so good to be back sharing the Eucharist with you these past two weeks. Now, if only we could get the weather to consistently stay in Spring, that would be excellent. 
You have the night off tonight; no Wednesday night program. We'll pick back up with that next week, taking a look at the Book of Acts! 
Without Wednesday night fellowship this week, we need something else to gather us together. So, mark your calendars for this Saturday, April 14 from 6-9pm and come out to the Parish Hall for Karaoke Night! Nacho bar and light refreshments included. Get those vocal chords ready!
On Sunday, Formation Hour starts back up. I'll be spending the next five weeks in Power Hour as we go through a series called Making Sense of the Cross. There are also some other great formation options, so be sure to check one of them out and take a look at your Sunday Scoop to get the rundown. For services, Fr. Fred will preach at 8:00, 9:15, and 10:30, and I'll be in the Gathering.
Finally, on Sunday evening, we will host Schola Cantorum at 4:00pm. If you enjoy music, you don't want to miss it! The ensemble performs a cappella, and never fail to put on a good concert.   
Looking forward to seeing (and hearing *wink wink*) you around!
