Adult Forums in Lent: Explore with Emily the meaning of Holy Week through Marcus Borg’s and John Dominic Crossan’s book, The Last Week: What the Gospels Really Teach About Jesus’ Final Days in Jerusalem. It is not necessary to have read the book in order to participate in the discussions. However, if you would like to read it, please purchase it on your own.
Evening Prayer: takes place every Monday through Friday in the chapel at 5:15 p.m. Come join Emily and your fellow parishioners for this 20 minute service of prayer, scripture reading, and quiet contemplation. Make Evening Prayer a part of your Lenten discipline this year.
The Monday Evening Book Study: is offered on Conversations with Scripture: The Gospel of Mark by Marcus Borg from 7:30-9 p.m. in the chapel. Participants need to get the book themselves before the class. If you have questions, please contact Rick Pearce.
Blood Drive: Red Crossis coming to St. Peter’s on FRIDAY March 15th (3 PM – 8 PM). NOW is the time to make your appointment to be a lifesaver.

As usual we will be doing Give a Pint, Get a Pint, so tell your friends and see the NET for details.
Collecting for St. James School: St. James is a faith-based Philadelphia middle school in the Episcopal tradition, committed to educating traditionally under-resourced students in a nurturing environment. Our Lenten and Easter Offerings will be given to help this school continue to grow and succeed in one of the poorest parts of the city. We have decorated a collection box to look like the school and placed it in the Parish Hall where it will be for all of Lent. Please consider giving to this wonderful school! Brochures have been placed around the church so that you can learn more about it.
Altar Flowers: In keeping with the solemn and penitential feel of the season, we will not be having altar flowers on the five Sundays in Lent. If you would like to remember someone with flowers during this time, please consider doing so on Easter Sunday or in the season of Easter. Thank you!
