Parish News April 13, 2018
It’s kind of odd when you think about it. Just a couple of Sundays ago we were gleefully celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord. And then for the rest of the Easter Season, Jesus himself seems be saying, “Don’t worry, it’s okay!” Maybe we are more comfortable with the idea of the Resurrection than with the reality of it.

Please stay for a Haitian-themed lunch and presentation about the Colorado Haiti Project on April 15 after the 10 am service. Front Range Catering is preparing and donating delicious traditional Haitian chicken for the event. This is our annual kick-off to raise scholarships for students at the Episcopal church school in Petit Trou de Nippes in rural Haiti. We’ve proudly supported an entire class in years past. Our goal is to send 30 students to this school, recognized as one of the best in the region. A full scholarship is $350, but donations in any amount are welcome before, during, and after the event. Checks can be made payable to St. Mary Magdalene with CHP/Konbit in the memo line. Please RSVP on the clipboards at church so we have an approximate count, but plan to attend even if you haven’t signed up! Contact Amy Thornbury.
Update Your Birthdays and Anniversaries with SMM
If you consider yourself a Newcomer, whether you have attended for three months or three years, and you have questions about further exploring your commitment to the community of St. Mary Magdalene, join us at 11:00am on Sunday, April 22, for a brunch and meaningful discussion about what it means to be a member of this community. Contact Sarah Jane Delaney with questions and to RSVP or sign up on the events table by the parking lot entrance.
Marge and Ed Szoke have selected a GREAT book for the Book Club! American Savior, a novel of divine Politics, by Roland Merullo. The premise is: Jesus Christ comes down to America and is running for president as an independent. It is quite humorous with themes of religion and politics, and a little bit of sex thrown in to help it sell. Marge and Ed will host us at 7pm, Friday, May 18, at their home. Respond, please, to Ed and Marge.
We are planning another “border immersion” trip to Nogales, a city on both sides of the US/Mexico border. We will learn how legal and illegal immigration affects on life along the border, talk with migrants, walk migrant trials, and visit a sister Episcopal church. We’ll stay at a community center on the Mexico side, and work with the children there. Please contact Fr Bruce to reserve a space or to learn more. Last year the cost was roughly $600/person, including airfare. Click here to see a recent article by the New York Times about Nogales.
