Happy Birthday – Joe Betchy (Jan. 25), Tyler Collins (Jan. 26)

A St. Peter’s Field Trip! On Monday, February 9th, we will take a field trip to the National Museum of Women in the Arts to see the exhibit, “Picturing Mary.” This exhibit of more than sixty works of images of the Virgin Mary, focuses on different aspects of Mary’s identity and her relationship to our Christian faith. Susan Tilt, professional artist, will lead our group through the exhibit. Admission to the museum is $10 for those under 65, $8 for students and those over 65. Youth 18 and under are free. Please let Catherine know (540) 809-7489 or by email if you would like to go. Deadline Feb. 1

Next Sunday, Feb. 1 – Souper Bowl collection for tackling hunger and poverty. It began 25 years ago with a simple prayer : “Lord as we enjoy the Super Bowl, help us to be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.” We will collect money for our own monthly food distribution. For our February Village Harvest distribution, we’re collecting ingredients for chili, so please bring cans of kidney beans, or other type of beans, (you can also bring dried beans) and cans of tomatoes—diced or crushed.

Coming, Monday, Feb. 2 – Candlemas! Service at 7pm. In this service, we celebrate the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, forty days after the celebration of His birth. St Asaph’s will be joining us, and The Rev. Bambi Willis will be our celebrant. If you have candles in your home that you plan to use during the year, please bring them for the candle blessing.
