Gethsemane Watch: A Maundy Thursday Vigil
**encouraged by the Daughters of the King**

In past years, Daughters of the King has encouraged our members to participate in a Watch or Vigil from Maundy Thursday night, after the Stripping of the Altar, through Good Friday until the 1st service of Easter, Saturday night at 7 pm.

In previous years, we have been in the Chapel watching, but this year, an At-Home vigil is suggested for everyone. This is open to the entire parish for anyone who would like to participate. Rather than signing up for certain hours it would be up to the participant to choose when they Watch from 9pm Thursday, April 1 through 7pm on Holy Saturday, April 3.
Good Friday Offering

Are you beginning to spring clean???
Since spring has sprung (hopefully), many of us have the need to “purge,” and “spring clean.” 

“Warm for Winter” a Quad-City wide collection of winter clothing for those in need is beginning now will be ongoing throughout year. Warm for Winter is spearheaded by Dora Carter from the Prescott Church of the Nazarene.
 
We will essentially accept any type of winter clothing (no shoes or boots. though). The basics are coats/jackets (new for children, gently used for adults), scarves, hats (adults, children, babies), gloves (very important and we never have enough), blankets/quilts, and socks.
 
In addition, sweaters, sweatshirts, and pants, along with work shirts and jeans, for the Navajo Reservation.
 
You may drop off your donations anytime in the wooden bin marked “WARM FOR WINTER DONATIONSin the Gathering Hall.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT OF “WARM FOR WINTER!"

St. Luke's Food Pantry continues to serve the community

Did you know there is an Arizona Chapter of the Union of Black Episcopalians?

This is an organization promoting greater unity within the Episcopal Church by:

  • Advocating the greater inclusion of Episcopalians of African descent in the Church
  • Fostering vocations among Black Episcopalians to Holy Orders, to the religious life, and to many other ministries in the Church
  • Engaging Black Episcopalians to greater involvement in parish and diocesan ministries here in Arizona
  • Answering Our Lord’s call that we all may be one by combatting racism, prejudice, hostility, marginalization, and any other problem that separates brothers and sisters in Christ
  • Bringing the riches of yet another Christian and Episcopalian cultural tradition into the mainstream of the Church.

They offer as part of their mandate:

  • In-person and online workshops on how to get involved at the Diocesan, National, Anglican Communion, and Ecumenical levels.
  • Opportunities to work effectively with anti-racism and pro-equality organizations.
  • Corporate worship opportunities, such as the Feast of Absalom Jones, and advisement on how to be more inclusive in worship.

Should you have any questions and/or want to hear more about their group and mission, email: ubeaz.vp@gmail.com.
The Parish Office will be closed on
Good Friday, April 2, & Monday, April 5, for Easter Monday.

Normal office hours are Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - Noon.

Appointments are appreciated.
