We met during the Eucharist today to discuss our planned first anniversary celebration of the Saint Alban Mission.
Several persons who had shown enthusiasm for a party last Sunday were not there today.
We also learned that next Sunday coincides with the picnic at El Zapote cinchona farm to benefit the Museo Ixchel, which is a marvelous and fun event, and several of our members showed an inclination to go that.
The Bishop cannot make it to our celebration either as he will be in Mazatenango next weekend.
We will give thanks to God next Sunday for blessing your work at Saint Alban, but our celebration will be put off to another date. Elizabeth Bell will provide an anniversary cake. Fr. Ricardo is good for a vegan friendly (Crisco) rhubarb pie. No other food is called for since we are not holding the planned potluck luncheon.
Wednesday March 05 is Ash Wednesday. There will be an Ash Wednesday Eucharist with imposition of ashes at 9:30 a.m. at Casa Convento Concepción. There will be another service on Wednesday at 12:00 Noon at Saint James in Guatemala City. You are all welcome at these services.
Wishing you a joyful week I am yours
