The Party of the Year

Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 25, 6pm By Fr. Steve Keplinger

Don’t miss it! It’s almost here, the party of the year. The GSP Mardi-Gras party has easily become our biggest blowout of the year, an extravaganza
of exploding excitement on the last night before the season of Lent begins.

First, there is the food, cooked and served by the men of the parish, who have become quite adept at preparation over the years. Pancakes, of course, but so much more. Eggs, bacon, sausage, veggie everything, desserts, and on and on.

Then there is the music. Live New Orleans jazz to knock your socks off. One year, the lights exploded during “When the Saints....”

Most importantly, the indulgences. Get one to save your soul before it is too late.

And the dancing, the line dance to end all line dances. Finally, the BONFIRE! We will burn last year’s palms in a spectacular end to Epiphany. Those same ashes will be placed on your head the next day on Ash Wednesday.
Grief can be an important part of our spiritual journey. A spiritual support grief group can provide you with a safe place to explore our grief experience and its potential for spiritual transformation. This group is experiential with music, guided meditation, prayer, short readings, as well as opportunities to share. All kinds of loss and grief experiences including the loss of an animal companion are welcome.

We will meet for seven weeks on Saturday mornings from 10 to 11:30 am starting February 22, 2020. It will be co-facilitated by Rev. Chris Ledyard and Laurie Finn. All sharing will be confidential and materials will be provided. Please call the Church Office at 520-327-6857 to preregister. If you have attended before, you are welcome to attend. 
February Play Reading

Ah, February, month for lovers and candy. The Grace-St. Paul’s Spirit Players’ First Friday play reading for February celebrates young lovers and the lengths to which they must go to wed in “Scapino”, a classic comedy by Moliere. The reading will be on Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m. in the Bloom Room
