Easter Blessings

Teach us, good Lord, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not so seek for rest, to labor and not to ask for any reward save that of knowing that we do thy will.

The first Knights of Columbus breakfast at the Immaculate Parish Hall this month was well attended following Mass.

I received the very interesting St. Croix Historical Society Newsletter this month. I love the page on moving forward, looking back. A lot of action back in the earlier years, hard work, late hours, keeping the fires going for their warmth in the winter. The most exciting was DeMont’s Hotel at Devil’s Head in early 1900s. I had driven down there so many times and kept thinking we need trees cleared out, picnic sites set up, a path to the beach. It is so peaceful and beautiful. A wonderful tourist attraction. I am so glad Brand Livingston is heading up a volunteer work/detail in assisting your time and material to help at Devil’s Head this spring/summer. 

The ECW served supper at St. Anne’s on Friday evening. The tables were covered with cloths, baskets of rolls, dishes of cole slaw, baked beans, corn and macaroni casseroles, and several varieties of cake for dessert. There was a raffle for a lemon pie won by Angela Ramsey. It was great to see many friends, relaxed and talking.

Holy Week Service at St. Anne’s Maundy Thursday March 24th at 6:00 pm. Good Friday March 25th at noon and 6:00 pm. There will be a pot luck on Easter Sunday following the service.

The Baring Baptist Church held an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday afternoon for the children. Easter baskets were also filled with goodies. They did some paintings around crosses that were copied for them. Snacks were served, a fun time as they exited with all their goodies. There will be an Easter breakfast at 9 am before the service and the Easter Cantata at 10:30 am.

Ken Colson and wife Edith have returned home from down south.

Evelyn Johnson is in the hospital recuperating from pneumonia. We wish her well.

The Second Baptist Church held their monthly concert on Saturday evening, entertained by Doug Hooper of Lubec. A lovely lunch followed. There was a great turnout.

Also, a Passover Supper on Thursday 24th at 5:30 pm. 

Their Easter Cantata on March 27th at 6:00 pm. This is all happening at the Second Baptist Church.

Jean Windrich is back in the hospital. We are all praying for her. A lovely lady.

My aunt Shirley Quigley of Pennfield is recuperating from a heart attack. My sister-in-law Esther Clinch of St. George is still dealing with her shoulder. 

Kathrine Sivret finishes up her last two months of Peace Corps Service. See you soon.

March is Youth Art Month, American Red Cross Month, Dr. Seuss’ birthday, St. Patrick’s Day and First Day of Spring. An exciting month.

Birthday wishes: Catherine Blake, Wendy Dean, Shelly Bodkin, Fran Walker, Dennis Gillespie, Brian Marshall, Kat Smutz, David Furtek, Judy Antoniello, Obadiah Lambert - son of  Sarah (Calder) and John Lambert, Dr. Brazier (well known, well loved by all), Falon Eales, Ed Hogan.

A reminder of Easter Service at the Sewall Memorial Church on Easter Sunday at 7:00 am. Light refreshments will follow. Rise up Early!


Happy anniversary to David and Ruth Sousa.
