Thanks to all church members who donated blood at the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center during February, the month of love. Some of us have even ‘committed for life’ as a result. We extend this outreach effort during the days of Lent. This is another chance to give something, since Lent isn’t just a time for giving up something. The local BLOOD CENTER is located at 4949 Sweetwater Blvd. in Sugar Land near Kroger’s and Antonia’s Restaurant. The center is open from 10 – 6 on Monday through Friday.
Sabbatical Q & A
Come learn more about the meaning of sabbatical and why God insists that we rest. On Sunday (Palm Sunday), March 29, at 10:15am, Fr. Bert and the Rev. Canon Ann Normand will lead a Q&A forum in the church on the topic of sabbatical. Canon Normand has a wealth of experience in ordained ministry. She most recently served as Canon to the Ordinary, serving alongside Bishop Doyle and working with the lay and ordained leadership across our diocese.
Canon Normand will be able to offer "best practices" for our parish when Fr. Bert takes his sabbatical this summer. And most importantly, Canon Normand can lead us in thinking about what the whole church body might gain from this unique time. Fr. Bert and Canon Normand would like to solicit your questions in advance. So, if you have practical or theological questions prior to the forum, please email your questions by March 23 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Click here to read Fr. Bert's Letter.
