St. John’s Episcopal Church - Sunday, January 6, 2019

 

From Fr. Ray+

This coming Saturday, January 5, we are pleased to welcome the Rev. Danny Schieffler to St. John’s.     Fr. Danny will be leading a workshop on Contemplative Prayer. The workshop starts at 9 a.m. with breakfast in the undercroft and will wrap up before noon.  The Spiritual Development Team at St. John’s is sponsoring this event with Fr. Danny as a means of encouraging all of us to begin the New Year by cultivating a deeper and more meaningful life of prayer.  Fr. Danny grew up in Helena and is well known by pretty much everyone at St. John’s.  He is currently the Rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Little Rock.

Our Annual Parish Meeting will be held Sunday, January 20, immediately following worship.  Lunch will be served and we will elect three new vestry members, approve the 2019 budget and give thanks for the many blessings of the past year.

Blessings, F. Ray+
