Claire Holley in concert in celebration of the release of Every Hour.
Concert - 8pm (Doors Open 7:30)
Informal Reception to Follow
“…simultaneously powerful and light as a feather.”
Every Hour is an inspired collection of hymns and sacred songs recorded in a rustic environment in the Texas hill country. The project was originally conceived as a 20th anniversary celebration of (and follow-up to) Sanctuary, released in 1999. Claire teamed up with John Plymale, producer and long-time collaborator from her early days of recording and playing music in North Carolina.
The album features modern arrangements of hymns and sacred songs, ranging in style from a 4th century carol ("Begotten") and southern gospel ("What Wondrous Love is This") to a Beach Boys cover ("You Still Believe in Me").
Saturday, May 11th — 11:30 — Parish Hall

THURSDAY, 18 APRIL — MAUNDY THURSDAY
Dinner - 6PM
Service - 7PM
Maundy Thursday, derived from the Latin word for “command,” is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday: the celebration of the Last Supper with Jesus’ disciples and the washing of the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and humble service.
This worship service, named after a town in France, started in 1940, when a man known as Brother Roger founded a small community there, born out of a vision to create a space for people to find God in the midst of brokenness. Taizé music is contemplative in nature, consisting of a simple one or two line refrain that is repeated multiple times, to help people focus and contemplate on a single aspect of God. for an extended period of time.
SUNDAY, 14 APRIL — 8 & 10AM
An ancient celebration of the Church, Palm Sunday commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The gospels record the arrival of Jesus riding into the city on a donkey, while the crowds spread their cloaks and palm branches on the street shouting “Hosanna to the Son of David” and “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord” to honor him as their long-awaited Messiah and King.
This year’s theme, Drawing On God: Sketching as a Spiritual Discipline. Designed especially for those who believe they are no good at art, we’ll spend a few hours finding the connections between the physical and the spiritual world. Lunch is provided. Led by the vicar.

Big Magic — Creative Living Beyond Fear
Q: What is creativity?
A: The relationship between a human being
and the mysteries of inspiration.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s latest.
“Big Magic will resonate with writers and artists who find the process of producing work to be particularly painful…Through anecdotes about her creative failures and resourcefulness, as well as those other artists, Gilbert encourages readers to pursue a creative life ‘that is driven more strongly by curiosity than by fear." —Daily Beast
