Adult Education Winter Wednesdays
Professor Carol Dempsey is coming back to us from the University of Portland to teach five Wednesdays, January 7 – February 4 on Wisdom Literature and Its Lessons for Today. Dinner is at 5:45, and the class runs from 6:45 – 8 p.m. There is a $20 suggested donation for her class. On February 11 there will be a contemplative Taize prayer service.

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
February 17 is Shrove Tuesday so it’s time for pancakes. Come enjoy the ham and pancakes at 5 p.m. The meal will be prepared by the men of the parish.

Ash Wednesday Services
On Wednesday, February 18 we’ll offer Ash Wednesday services at 6:30 a.m., noon and 7:30 p.m. The liturgy is filled with sober images, reflection on our mortality and our sin, and the action of having ashes “imposed” on our foreheads, before we celebrate the Eucharist (the Holy Meal that affirms God’s forgiveness and love) together in community.

Inclement Weather Notification
Winter can be unpredictable. In the event of cancellations, notices are available to you in three different ways. For information about cancelled services or events at St. Bart’s, we will update the Church Phone message, send an email out to the congregation, and post the status on a website www.FlashAlert.net, which distributes the messages to the Metro-area news media.
