A Season of the Spirit: Readings for the Days of Lent
By Martin Smith

(some books will be available for purchase after Sunday Worship for $14; it also can be ordered through

“We are looking forward to the Taizé Services and reflection on the readings from “A Season for the Spirit”. We have actually written all the dates into our calendars (and rescheduled other engagements!) so that we can dedicate these six Wednesdays for our Lenten contemplation time, to open up our minds and hearts to an understanding of life and our place in it. We have experienced the simplicity and serenity of the Taize service and found it to be moving and meaningful. We look forward to doing this together and with our friends at King’s Chapel.”  ~ Dick and Cynthia Perkins

Second Sunday Collection 
March 2014 Second Sunday Collection: Friendship Works (formerly Match-Up Interfaith Volunteers)
Many of us remember Match-Up with special fondness from the days when our Senior Warden Dean Denniston’s father (DKD Sr.) was the handsome senior portrayed on their promotional materials. Now known as Friendship Works, this organization continues to match volunteers with seniors and people with disabilities who may be isolated, need help with a medical appointment, or just enjoy some extra companionship.
Rev. Fallon's sermons are now online! Click here to find downloadable PDFs of her sermons from January 2013 to present.

Tuesday Recitals
Join us next Tuesday, March 4, as Leonid Chindelevitch performs works by Tárrega, Albéniz, and Mangoré on guitar. 

Church School Pancake Sunday--This Sunday!
The Church School and their families will be gathering after Church School on March 2nd to celebrate the coming Lenten season with pancakes. A tradition at King’s Chapel, we are drawing from the Shrove Tuesday. Pancakes are made to use up the rich food of dairy, eggs and sugar before the season of fasting. We are happy to join together for an afternoon of sweetness.
