Lent 4
The Fourth Sunday in Lent

Saturday, March 18
5 p.m. Evening Prayer and Holy Eucharist in the Celtic Tradition

Sunday, March 19
9:30 a.m. Choral Eucharist

ReGeneration Contemporary Worship Services take place on the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. Upcoming services will be on April 5 and 19. We livestream the Sunday services on YouTube and Facebook. View worship bulletins on the St. Bart’s App or on the Worship Schedule page.
Starting the week after Easter, the Saturday emails with separate worship links and bulletins will be discontinued. Links to bulletins are already in the “Weekly News” emails, as well as on our website and in our app, and we believe our parishioners will appreciate one fewer email each week.

Sumner Rollings Memorial

Sumner was a faithful member of St Barts for over 30 years. He loved running the barbeque for the annual meetings, became active in the St. Bart’s Thrift Shop working in the back room and served as president of the Thrift Shop board. He sang in the choir, was a LEM, a verger and chaired the Stewardship Committee, of which he was involved for over five years. A celebration of life will be on Saturday, March 18th at 1:00pm at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Williamsburg, Virginia.

Suzi Farar Memorial

Suzi joined St. Bart’s in 1972. She was in the Order of St. Luke’s, in Cursillo, was a Lay Eucharistic Minister, and served as a Chaplin on the search committee when we called Fr. Mark. She was then on the building committee, which their family generously donated towards. Suzi also enjoyed playing guitar when we had folk services. Her memorial service will be at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on March 23, 10:30am. There will be a committal and reception at St. Bartholomew’s that day at 2 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Prayers and Squares quilting ministry of St. Bart’s.

Beyond Our Parish
Camp Stevens Sunday Is March 19

What Is Camp Stevens? 
Camp Stevens is your diocesan camp! Camp Stevens’ mission is to inspire, challenge and empower personal, social and environmental transformation. For 70+ years, Camp Stevens has provided a welcoming home for retreats, summer camps and outdoor education in the mountain town of Julian, CA. Our 256 acres serve as a place of healing, adventure and, most importantly, community. Learn more about Camp Stevens at campstevens.org.

Camp Stevens Sunday Prayer
God of the oak and the pine, of sunrise and sunset, and of healing and love, hear our prayers. Celebrate those who love Camp Stevens and those who are discovering camp today for the first time. Keep us mindful of the rights and needs of others through Camp Stevens’ mission work of transformation grounded in the values of openness, connection, gratitude and wonder. Amen.

Support our Equity Initiatives! Camperships and Employee Equity Grants
Your gift will support scholarships for summer camp and family camps, as well as the Employment Equity Initiative. These initiatives reflect our commitment to justice, equity, diversity and inclusion within our camp environment and beyond. This program will help address barriers to participation for people traditionally marginalized and underrepresented in camp, whether as campers, in family programs or in staff and counselor roles.

Give today to support this important initiative at campstevens.org/give!
