Dear Pilgrims on the Way of Lent,
We know from Paul's letters that early Christians shared material resources with one another as a sign and sacrament of the Risen Christ of Easter. Christ was to be found not only here but in others, elsewhere. The pile is gaining strength in Sherrill Hall to contribute to villages where Phillip will minister inTanzania, but its not too late. Please bring: children and adults clothes, children uniforms grade 1 to 8 (white shirts and blue short pants and blue skirts), pencils, notebooks, pens, rubbers, sharpeners, and items of such kind. They will go to the villages of Nghumbi, and Veronica’s village of Masaella, HimmoPofo.
You can help celebrate Easter in this way, too. Intake will continue until Easter Day.
Holy Week Evening Services for Good Friday, (God's Friday--who God is for us, holding nothing back), Saturday (Youth led Easter Vigil) are all at 7:30pm.
Good Friday Stations of the Cross is at 12 noon on the Common. Easter Day services are at 9 and 11am. Come enter into the light of new life.

I am gathering items for children, adults, and seniors in need to the diocese of Mpwapwa especially to my native father’s village of Nghumbi, and Veronica’s village of Masaella, HimmoPofo. These items are children and adults clothes, children uniforms grade 1 to 8 (white shirts and blue short pants and blue skirts), pencils, notebooks, pens, rubbers, sharpeners, and items of such kind. Please we neither need new stuffs nor ask you to spend any cent to these items. Please bring used items or items which you do not use them and which they can be given away. These things are much needed to many children, adults, and seniors who have no other ways to have them. These items will be collected here at St. Paul ready to be shipped by sea to Tanzania at the end of April prior to my trip. Remember that all these items will be sent in the name of St. Paul Episcopal Church, Natick MA. There is a box in Sherrill hall.
