THIS SUNDAY NIGHT IS THE LONG-AWAITED St. Patrick’s Celebration for the EYC, Alums and friends at the Church of the Epiphany. We hope to have a large group to show our friends at Epiphany how grateful we are for their invitation.

THE THIRD THURSDAY MORNING MASS & LENTEN BREAKFAST is March 20th. Mass begins at 7:00 am. If you would like to attend the breakfast following Mass, be sure to sign-up so the cooks for the week know how much to prepare.

FUNDRAISING ACTIVITY MEETING on Sunday, March 23, following the 10am Mass. Please join us to suggest and discuss some new activities to add to our fundraising at St. Michael’s.

LADDER CLIMBERS AND HELPERS will be needed to veil the church for Passiontide, the last two weeks of Lent, on Saturday, April 5th beginning right after Mass. We greatly appreciate any help you can give us with this big Lenten event.

ALTHOUGH WE WILL CONTINUE to give the Service numbers for the Kyrie, Sanctus, Benedictus, and Agnus Dei, you will notice that the setting, New Plainsong by David Hurd, is collected in the purple booklets  which are at the back of the Church.  Thanks to the Norwoods for arranging this for the congregation’s convenience.

TRANSPORTATION FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE for parishioners who, because of physical limitations, would not otherwise be able to attend church services.  A per person cap of $300 has been set in order that the limited funds may be made available to a larger number of parishioners in need.  If you or a parishioner you know could benefit from this assistance, please call the office, 303-777-5181.
