Good morning everyone!
I am starting to think about our Sharing Garden and planning for planting this season. If you are interested in helping out with the garden, even in small ways, please let me know. The peas will be planted today!
Please remember the Food Bank and let’s fill our basket!

Holy Saturday Retreat 31 March 9:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. –. Held at Gloria Dei, in conjunction with St. Clement’s. Led by the Rev. Dr. Lynne McNaughton, pastor at St. Clements. The focus is on the conflicted feelings of grief, loss and hopefulness that are associated with any transition in lives. Lynne suggested that given the transition that Gloria Dei is going through, it might be a good idea to have the retreat at Gloria Dei. A few members of Gloria Dei have participated in this retreat in each of the last two years and it has been a real highlight of the Easter season. Please consider coming to this, it really is wonderful! – but register first by calling St. Clement’s church office.
