A few reminders for the coming week:

This Sunday, February 21, is the First Sunday of Lent: Regular service schedule with Holy Eucharist at 8 and 10. Let Lent make a difference in your life. Join us for worship.

Sunday afternoon at 1:30 the Tamworth Arts Council will host a concert at Saint Andrew's: The Boston String Quartet.

Our Lenten Series Holy Living: Approaches to Prayer  will begin on Wednesday, February 24th at 10:00, followed by eucharist at 11:30. Other Wednesday  sessions will meet on March 3*, 10, and 17.
There will also be a Tuesday 5 pm section that will meet on March 2*, 9, and 16.
* Correction:  The rector will be taking March 2nd and 3rd off, so neither of these groups will meet on those days.  The correct schedules:
Tuesdays at 5 pm: March 9, 16, and 23.
Wednesdays at 10 am: March 10, 17, and 24.

 This series is designed with the hope of supporting and deepening (or beginning) our prayer lives in the context of living our regular lives in the world! Remember, there is no such thing as an expert in prayer. We are all beginners on a journey of learning and discovery. God is already there to meet us. 

Enjoy some pictures from the Pancake Supper!!!
In spite of the snow, almost 50 people attended and we brought in $325 for Haiti Relief and the Good Samaritan School! Thank you all.

Food  for thought....
A reflection from Dorothy Day, co-founder of the Catholic Workers' Movement on Sunday's Gospel account of Jesus' temptation:
"St. Bonaventure said that after the long fast of our Lord in the desert, when the angels came to minister to him, they went first to the blessed Mother to see what she had on her stove, and got the soup she had prepared and transported it to our Lord, who relished it the more because his mother had prepared it. Of course!"

See you in church.
