On March 25, Palm Sunday, the Church School is planning to walk to Cardinal Cushing and visit the Stations of the Cross during the church service. Plan ahead and wear your walking shoes and dress appropriately. While we are hoping for a beautiful spring day, an alternate inside activity will be ready if the weather does not cooperate. Parents are welcomed to join us on the walk!

Church Hill United Methodist Church in Norwell will be hosting a Seder Supper at 6:30 pm on  Thursday, March 29 (Maundy Thursday). A traditional lamb dinner will be served according to the traditions of Christ's last supper with his disciples. Participating in this meal and the rituals accompanying it has been, in the past, one of the church's most meaningful traditions leading to the celebration of Easter.  The meal will consist of lamb, roasted potatoes, a mix of vegetables, the Seder plate, and apple kugel for dessert. We hope you will want to be a part of this meaningful and inspirational Maundy Thursday service and supper.
They will need to know how many for whom to plan so please call the church office, (781-826-4763) by March 20th to make your reservation. The cost of the meal is $8.00 for adults and $5.00 for children under 12 or $25.00 for a family of 4 or more. Please make checks payable to CHUMC with "Seder Supper" in the memo line.
St. John's Holbrook invites everyone to join us for a service of Choral Evensong on Saturday, March 10, at 4:00. The service will be sung by MagnificatBoston, a group of singers from parishes around the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Since 2006, MagnificatBoston has been singing Evensong services once a month in parish churches and chapels of the Diocese. St. John's is delighted to welcome them and hopes that many of you will join us for this service.
