April 2015

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

The start of April this year finds us also near the start of Holy Week and Easter, with Palm Sunday falling just a few days earlier on March 29th. Our commemorations continue throughout the week with the Maundy Thursday liturgy and vigil (April 2, 7:30 pm), the Great Three Hours of Good Friday (April 3, noon to 3 pm), the baptisms of Holy Saturday (April 4, 4 pm), and the Easter Sunday Flame Walk (April 5, 4:30 am, Old Colchester Parking Lot), Vigil (5:30 am) and Festival Communion services (7:45, 9:15 and 11:15 am)—not to mention the Easter Egg Hunt for the kids (10:30 am). Come be a part of as much of it as you can, and invite your neighbors while you're at it!

In this month's Epost, our Rector again draws upon some of the poetry from his Lenten series to help fathom the deeper meanings of Holy Week and Easter. Likewise, our Assistant writes about the Easter message in Sunday School Curriculum.

Elsewhere, read about recent vestry deliberations, as well as the activities and ruminations of our Sunday School, Martha Guild, and Music & Stewardship ministries, among others, as well as updates about news around the Anglican Communiuon.

Also, you can find an application for this year's Parish Retreat at Shine Mont, June 26-28, which can also be downloaded here.

Read about these events and topics, and much, much more in this month's E-Post!
