Lenten Class—Anglican Identity and Spirituality

February 18 (Lent I) through March 18 (Lent V)

Father Wallace will teach a five-session class exploring Anglican identity and spirituality, in the Library each Sunday afternoon in Lent from 1:15 PM to 2:15 PM.  Each session will be relatively self-contained, so you may attend any or all of them as your schedule permits.  Please let him know if you are interested.   The book for the class is The Anglican Way:  A Guidebook by Thomas McKenzie, hard copies of which will be available at the first class.  If you would like to purchase the book for yourself, please see Fr. Wallace to make arrangements.


It is my sad duty to report to you the death of Francis Didik, the mother of Joan Bredthauer.  Francis is known to us because she attended mass at St. Paul’s many times over the years, and we consider her part of St. Paul’s extended family.  She received Holy Communion and Last Rites this past Saturday morning in hospice and passed into the next life on Monday evening.  A wake is being held this Friday, February 9,  2:00 pm to 5:00 pm and 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, at the Fox/Simpson Funeral Home, 98-07 Ascan Ave, in Forest Hills.  The funeral will take place this Saturday, February 10, 10:00 am, at the Church of the Resurrection, 85-09 118th St., (between 85th St. and Hillside Ave), in Kew Gardens/Richmond Hill.  Flowers may be sent to the Fox/Simpson Funeral Home, or, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to City Meal on Wheels at https://www.citymeals.org/support-us/donate-now.  Please keep the the Bredthauer family in your prayers.

✠Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord.  And let light perpetual shine upon them.May the soul of Francis, and the souls of the all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Almighty God, Father of mercies, and Giver of comfort:  Deal graciously, we pray thee, with Joan, Dave, Emma, and Caroline, and with all those who mourn, that casting every care on thee, they may know the consolation of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Yours sincerely in Christ,

Fr. Wallace
