Friday, March 10: Labyrinth Walk at 10 am in the Parish Hall and 5:30 pm Labyrinth Walk with Eucharist. Our guided labyrinth walks on the second Friday of every month at 10 am continue in March with the focus on “Healing.” Dr. Margaret Rappaport, Veriditas-certified labyrinth facilitator, will present an introduction to the walk following an opening theological reflection by Rev. Anne Koehler. Darlene T. Hagon, Director of Music will offer music selected to foster meditation on the theme. Join us again at 5:30 pm on March for celebration of the Eucharist. The labyrinth walk is meaningfully incorporated into an inspiring worship service by Rev. Anne Koehler. All are welcome, even if you simply sit, listen to the music, and quietly meditate in the inviting, candlelit space of the Parish Hall.

ACOLYTES: Have you ever wanted to be an Acolyte? Now’s your chance — we need volunteers! Contact Mary Anne Bragdon at 508-896-3481.

Cape Cod Council of Churches: Did you notice the basket of diapers at the front entrance to the Parish Hall? These are destined for A Baby Center, which helps low-income mothers of children up to age three. Won’t you help by picking up a pack of diapers or baby wipes when you shop and leave them in the basket?

CHS ARTIST: BOOKS FOR LENTEN STUDY – Lent is the season for prayer, introspection, and discovery. It is also the time to study what it means to be a Christian and to walk the walk with Jesus during his final 40 days. Please stop by the Gallery in our Reception Room and select one of the books we have on display from our own parish library. Take it home to read. Just make sure you “sign it out” using the tracking card in the back cover of each book and place that card in the box in the bay window. And… Don’t forget to return your selection once you have completed reading it. Sign up to show your work in 2017 for one month. The sign up sheet is located in the Gallery/Reception Room by the door. Questions/comments, contact Sharyn Laughton – artoff@comcast.net – 508 255 7277.

EMAILS: Please note: We will NOT be using the admin@chsorleans.org email in the future. All emails to the CHS office should go to: office@chsorleans.org. Thank you.

FREE SHOP: The Free Shop is gladly and gratefully accepting WINTER clothing. Open on Mondays: 12 Noon to 3 pm and Wednesdays: 10 am to 1 pm. Your donations can be dropped off any time the Parish Hall is open. If the shop is closed there is a container outside the Free Shop door at the foot of the elevator. Questions? Call Sharyn Laughton at 508-255-7277 or artoff@comcast.net.

GALLEY WEST GIFT SHOP: We are open on Sundays from 11 am to 12 Noon.

GROCERY CARDS: After church at the coffee hour we sell Grocery Cards which may be used at Stop and Shop, Shaw’s, Friend’s, and Phoenix Fruit. The buyer receives full value of the card and the store donates 5% to the Homeless Prevention Council. The need is great here on the Lower Cape and by purchasing the grocery cards you will be helping those less fortunate.

Ladies Luncheon – THANK YOU: The ladies at the January Ladies Luncheon suggested bringing in donations for the Baby Center in Hyannis at our February meeting. The idea was a complete success. The huge baby carrier for donations that can be found in the entryway to the Parish Hall was brimming over with all-things-baby at the end of our meeting. Thanks to all who contributed to this gift from the heart.
