Pastor's Letter

April 2019


Dear Brothers and Sisters In Christ,

In various traditions, there are references to “High Holy Days,” days of worship that are more special for the occasion they mark. These days are also called “Feast Days”
in many traditions.  April is practically a high holy month as we leave Lent and enter into
the Easter season.

Join our feast and feed your spiritual hunger by coming to the table of Christ, in all its forms:

Worship in the Sanctuary Sundays:
April 7  – The 5th Sunday of Lent – Communion by Intincture 
April 14 – Palm Sunday – Eastertide Lessons and Carols
April 21 – Easter Sunday -  VMI Brass and Beautiful Flowers

Worship in the Chapel Thursdays:
April 4 – Lenten Vespers 7:00-7:30
April 11 – Lenten Vespers 7:00 –7:30
April 18 – Maundy Thursday/Tenebrae 7:00-8:00
A Service of Communion and Shadows
