Thank you to those who contributed to the Croatia Project, “Re-Evangelizing Europe” for Good Shepherd REC in Osijek . The amount received from the Lenten and Good Friday Services was $555. Praising the Lord! Evanglizing overseas through missions was so important to Bishop Grote! Glad we can play a little part in helping reach others for Christ overseas!
THANK YOU to all who brought food today or fixed Easter eggs for the kids to hunt, and to those who purchased the beautiful lilies for Easter in honor or in memory of loved ones! Plus, special thanks to Tutu Balogun for the beautiful display in the Parish Hall! (See PR pg. 1)
STATIONS OF THE CROSS
We are very grateful for the new set of fourteen Stations of the Cross that now adorn the side walls of the church. Steven Alspach was able to find and have reproduced these master pieces by Duccio, which he painted for the cathedral in Siena , Italy (1308-1311). We thank those who paid for these beautiful reproductions! Jesus be praised!
* SPECIAL OFFERING *
Synod and General Council will be June 14-16 in Dallas , Texas . Along with the Rev. Levis, we are sending Steven Alspach as delegate and Rev. Phil Tjoelker to represent St. Andrew's.
