Announcements  for February 7, 2016

 

This is Undie Sunday!  The Celebration takes place after the 10am service. A fun time, just a little silliness for a really good and important purpose - collecting new men's underwear and socks for the Springfield Rescue Mission. Plain tees and briefs or boxers please. We will have a special cake (of course!) and a speaker from the Rescue Mission to tell us about their new facility.  Yes, a new Undie Monarch will be crowned and we need you all to present those undies to the new King or Queen!  Thank you for your kind donations!

Souper Bowl Sunday, February 7: Youth and Children will be holding soup bowls at the conclusion of the services. The proceeds go directly to the Open Pantry feeding program.  Thank you for your generosity.

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper (Tuesday, February 9 at 6 PM): this year we are selling tickets for a nominal fee ($1/each). This will help us know how many guests to plan for, so that we buy and prepare enough food. All proceeds collected will go directly to ministries for the homeless.  Tickets will be sold after all services this weekend, and can also be purchased at the Cathedral office Monday through Friday from 9-4. See Father Tom for details.

Ash Wednesday, February 10, Services with the imposition of Ashes will be held at 7am, 12pm, 6pm (English) and 7pm (Spanish) and we hope you will join us. The full schedule of the Adult Education program for Lent will Author Kerry Weber, Saturday, February 13, 2016, 10 AM-2 PM (Lunch included; at the Cathedral, no cost, but please register by calling or emailing Lydia at 413-736-2742, llockwood@cccspfld.org.)

Lenten day with local Author Kerry Weber, author of “Mercy in the City.”  Hear from this inspiring speaker about opportunities she found to do good and make a difference. The perfect way to guide your Lent. Kerry will also preach at 10 and 12:15 on Sunday the 14th. 

Cathedral Choir—this time of year is the perfect time to join the Cathedral Choir! If you are interested in this dynamic ministry, please speak with David Pulliam or send him an email at dpulliam@cccspfld.org.

St. Barnabas and All Saints Church is holding their final service this morning.  As good neighbors, some of the Cathedral’s members will join in worship with St. Barnabas/All Saints at their final worship service at 10:00 AM. This is a nice way to share in fellowship and accompany them in their grief.  Celebrant will be Fr. Charles Summers.  The church is located at 41 Oakland Street, in Springfield’s Forest Park neighborhood.

Parking at the Cathedral can be a challenge, but we aim to accommodate you. We are reserving some handicapped spaces for those who attend 10am service. Spaces are along the back of the Cathedral, facing the Dr. Seuss statues. Sunday morning you may also park in the museum parking lots, past the Cathedral on the right on Edwards Street.
