St Edmund's Episcopal Church San Marino

The Fourth Sunday of Easter, April 26th 2015

I’m not a pretender to sainthood apart from the general sort we’re all said to partake of, but this may still be an auspicious week to drop by Church with any dragons you need slain, what with the Feast of St. George falling on Thursday, April 23rd. I’ve tamed some dragons, slain a few, and have Father Colville for back-up.

Footloose Wednesday evening at 8pm? I have two tickets to see F.W. DeKlerk at the Distinguished Speaker Series April 22nd at The Pasadena Civic Auditorium, and am myself occupied that evening. They’re good seats, gratis, and I’ll throw in a couple of indulgences…or did we do away with those?
Shoot me an e-mail if you’d like those tickets, and Confirmation Class members are expected to show up with the answer to the pop-quiz above on Sunday afternoon.

Our much loved Youth Director graduates from Azusa Pacific early May and packs her bags for Grad School in Colorado. We are sorry to see Danielle Patterson go, but will send her forth with blessing prayers (we did not do away with those) this coming Sunday, followed by a Taco Fest on the Close. Please forgo any other plans for Brunch or Lunch…perhaps Dinner…on Sunday, as the Taco Truck Lady is terrific and offers ample corn and flour tortillas brim full with all manner of happy food.

Eastertide blessing on your pilgrim paths,
