Burning of the Palms: Making of the Ashes
If you have palm fronds you received last year on Palm Sunday, bring them to church to use in our Burning of the Palms ritual in preparation for Ash Wednesday. A basket for palms is located on the table in the Parish Hall. You may also bring them to the Pancake Supper on Shrove Tuesday, March 4. After eating pancakes, we will burn palms in the courtyard at 6:30 pm.

See the 2013 Carnegie International before it closes!
Take a tour of the exhibition with Carnegie Museum of Art’s director of development, Jamie McMahon, on Sunday, March 9 at 2 p.m. The Carnegie International is the most important and longest-running survey of international contemporary art in North America, and it happens right here in Pittsburgh. Lauded by The New York Times as “a welcome shock to the system” and by The New Yorker as “strikingly thoughtful,” don’t miss the opportunity before the show closes on March 16. Please contact Jamie by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412.889.4248 if you are interested. We will meet just inside the museum entrance by the fountain.
The Next Step Group of the Sam Shoemaker Community
As we continue to draw inspiration from the teachings of The Reverend Sam Shoemaker, we especially want you to be with us as we join The Reverend John Fetterman, Calvary’s theologian in-residence, for our annual Celebration of Dr. Shoemaker’s life and works on Sunday, January 26 at 10 a.m. in the Refectory.
We invite you to be with us every Saturday from 10:30-11:30 a.m. in the Conference room when we have a small group discussion around all the spiritual matters that Dr. Shoemaker wrote and spoke about. For details about our group, please visit the Calvary website.
Help us keep the church in full bloom by donating flowers in memory of, or in honor of, someone special. If you would like to place a memorial listing, please contact Marsha Morris in the church office at 412.661.0120, ext. 130.
Deadlines for Publications
The deadline for submissions for the next issue of Agape is on Friday, March 7, 2014. Please e-mail your text to email@example.com or deliver it to the church office.
Announcements for the Sunday service bulletin must be received by the end of the day on Wednesday.
Clothing Donation Basket
Calvary is accepting donations of gently used clothing. There is a clothes basket sitting in the Parish Hall near the shopping cart, available for you to drop off donations anytime: Sunday when you come to worship, or during the week when you are here for a meeting or to attend a class. One item or many, it all helps. (Please save your household goods for donation to the Women of Calvary's Bazaar later in the year.) Thank you.
