Weekly Announcements, February 22

TODAY IS CAMP NEW HAPPENINGS SUNDAY We will have a special collection for Camp New Happenings, supported by our diocese for children of incarcerated parents. Many of these children would not have an opportunity to experience what so many of our children have done for years, the fun, love, caring and sharing of Jesus at summer camp. Please give generously, in the special envelopes provided in the pew card holders so we can help more each year to experience the love of Jesus. Make checks payable to St. Alban’s. Include your offering number on the envelope for credit on your contribution statement.

THIS IS CHURCH CLEANING WEEK.

A LENTEN STUDY focusing on the four Gospels and what each of them highlights begins this Wednesday and continues on the four Wednesdays in March. Join us for worship at 6:30 p.m., followed by the study.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS are held at 6:00 p.m. each Friday during Lent. Walk with Jesus down the road to Calvary on The Way of the Cross, a powerful devotional liturgy that follows Jesus through His passion and death. At each station a meditation, versicle and response, and prayer is read

LENTEN COIN FOLDERS are available in the narthex. Proceeds will be used to support the Madina Village School in Sierra Leone, which opened on September 16, 2013 for 270 students ages 4 through 10. In the process the village, and the surrounding area, has been mobilized to produce enough food to sustain themselves, and has been inspired to develop their own leadership and community efforts.

MITE BOXES are available in the narthex. Proceeds will be used to support the Against Malaria Foundation. Malaria is a major problem in sub-Saharan Africa. Over 1 million people, mostly children, die each year. Insecticide-treated bed nets prevent cases of and deaths from malaria and are relatively inexpensive, about $5 per net.

RIDE NEEDED If you could provide a ride to church for a lady who lives near Stellhorn and Lahmeyer roads, please contact Pastoral and Family Care Director Marion Frid at 482-7302.

FOOD BANK items needed are beef broth, chicken broth, muffin mix, cake mix, mustard, ketchup, bar soap, dish washing liquid.

OPEN DATES for Sanctuary Candles are all Sundays in March.
