Holy Week and Easter 2021


Dear Calvary Parishioners,

Thank you to everyone who responded to the Holy Week Worship interest survey. We had 52 households/ 108 people respond.

Of those responding, 

93 people are interested in attending masked and distanced Easter Worship
4 cannot attend
9 asked for online worship
2 are unsure

A solid 65% of you also expressed interest in picking up a Holy Week at Home packet.

Below is a schedule for Holy Week 2021.
All services designed with utmost safety considerations and COVID protocols in place.

This schedule is subject to change due to COVID contingencies or weather. We are doing our best to offer safe options for people in the varying circumstances of this continuing pandemic reality.

I hope you'll join us-- whether it's online, in-person, or both-- as we recall the saving acts of God, the passion of the Christ, and the glory of the Resurrection.

Blessings,

The Reverend Allison English
Rector

Wednesday Lenten Study

We are studying the classic exploration of Christian community Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

Discovering the Sacred
Calvary's own Jim Postell is teaching this Lenten series in Milan, Italy this month! You're invited to join via ZOOM.

All Saints’ Milan offers a five-part Lenten Series centered on discovering sacredness in the physical and spatial world around us, with reflection on the characteristics associated with the sacred and how it all relates with our spiritual journey and the Lenten season. Themes of community, sacredness, and making will be used to discuss the sacred manifested in the wilderness, the garden, the building, and the city.  All are invited to gather on-line using ZOOM for discussion.  Come build, share, and expand your understanding of the sacred. 

All Saints’ Lenten Series  -  Discovering the Sacred
WHEN?    Thursdays, at 6pm (Noon - 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time) during Lent  

18 March, discovering sacredness in buildings & built form 
25 March, the city, urban places, the Internet
