Holiday Blessings

Happy New Year!
For the church that was December 1, in the secular realm that's coming up in just a couple weeks. I hope you are enjoying a pleasant Advent. For those active in parish life, this can be a busy time. I would like to remind you to take a bit of time for yourself...and I say that as much to me as to each of you, my sisters in Christ.

I want to remind you of the diocesan wide project we have embarked on, too. With your help and submissions of favorite prayers and/or personal meditations, we (the board and I) are compiling a Lent devotional book to share with all chapters and also churches with no chapters. We need you to send a favorite Lent prayer or short devotion (either your own or from a favorite author) to Cindy. This may be a project you want to take on as a Chapter. Discuss and decide on 2 or 3 favorites as a chapter and send them in, or do it individually The Board will be contributing and I've already received some other submissions. Deadline for submission is Epiphany 2014 (January 6), so you have some time to think...but don't delay too long!!  

Looking ahead to 2014 there are some exciting opportunities for retreat and refreshment (found on the calendar page).
