Lenten Outreach Program:  This Lenten season Outreach will be sponsoring the Children’s Book Bank in Portland.  This organization, founded by a Teach for America teacher, strives to improve skills of low-income children by providing them with books before they reach kindergarten.  We will be collecting new and gently used books from March 5th through April 20th.  “Read-aloud” books of all kinds, Spanish included, are needed.  Books for older children, that is, early chapter books are welcome.  A number of the books donated will be used in our St. Gabriel Preschool this fall. Collection baskets are available in the Narthex.

Lenten – Stations of the Cross:  Stations of the Cross is a devotional tool commemorating the last day of Jesus’ life based on the tradition of pilgrims retracing Jesus’ steps on Good Friday.  Please feel free to use the Stations booklet that will be available for personal or small groups use during Lent, anytime the church is available.  They will be on the usher table shelf.  Try a new discipline or continue your Lenten tradition, walk the stations and share with a friend this season.

St. Bart’s Emergency Food Pantry:  St. Bart’s needs our help.  Please take a flyer(in the Narthex) with the list of items needed.
