ONCE AGAIN, MARDI GRAS WAS A WONDERFUL EVENING AND GREAT SUCCESS
Many thanks to Marian and David Haas who opened their home for the Mardi Gras Party last evening.  And thanks to the ACW for all their work and planning.  An extra special thank you goes to all the great cooks who provided the meal.  Last night was a wonderful evening.

50/50 RAFFLE IS HERE!   We plan to sell 400 tickets with two winners – each winner wins $500 cash. The balance helps to reduce the church mortgage. Tickets are $5.00 each and on sale today after both services.  Please see Mike & Kathy McKeag.

ATTENTION ALL MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE 65 AND OLDER
We will have a special Lenten discussion and scripture study beginning Monday, March 3 at 10:30 am.  We will discuss a book entitled Rich in Years.”   No fee is involved.   A sign-up sheet is available on the patio.     For more information, please speak with Ann Whitfield or Father Hines.  Rides can be provided – contact Ann.  You must be 65 or older.  This is going to be fun and enriching.

THE MAGDALENE MYSTERY, WRITTEN BY CHRISTINE SUNDERLAND
Christine Sunderland, a member of our national church, received yet another award for her novel, The Magdalene Mystery; this time capturing First Place, Adult Fiction, in the Feathered Quill Books Awards Program. The Dean of our seminary, Fr. Paul Russell, says her work has “history, intrigue, romance,…a manuscript revealing the real St. Mary Magdalene,” unlike the Gnostic fluff about Mary Magdalene that has been so popular of late. The Magdalene Mystery is available for purchase in our parish bookstore with a donation request of $20.
