Epiphany Society News
Epiphany Society News – After an entire year of not being able to meet, it’s time to get together. Since our scheduled meeting date, April 1, falls on Maundy Thursday, we will be meeting on April 8. We will wear masks and social distance but at least we can gather again. Hope to see all of you there and welcome to any ladies of the church who would like to join us.
Seder Meal-There is still room
Many have asked if the Seder Meal will be able to happen this year. It is true that we will be limited on how many can sign up, however, we will be having the meal on Wednesday, March 31st starting at 4:30pm. We will be limited to 6 people per table (one family or people you are comfortable being around unmasked,) and right now, 5 tables. Please contact pastor Chris if you are interested at Pastor.Chris@stjsp.org.
I am looking at ways to possibly expand the amount of space we have, but currently this is our limit.
