Afternoon of Remembrance

On April 1st from 10:00 a.m.—2:00 p.m., students from OU will be at St. Michael’s caring for our Memorial Garden and cleaning windows.  This is a great opportunity for the rest of us to get the easier cleaning at St. Michael’s done for the Easter season.  The usual things, dusting, cleaning pews, straightening up the kitchen.  If you can spare a few hours that Saturday to help out, it would be greatly appreciated by everyone. 

Altar Guild Meeting

There will be a meeting of all available Altar Guild members on Sunday, April 2nd, at 9:30 a.m.  Plans for Holy Week will be discussed. 

Easter Flowers

Sunday bulletins for April 2nd and April 9th will contain giving envelopes for anyone who would like to contribute towards our Easter flowers and other adornments.  Please leave you donation envelope in the offering plate or return it to the office.  Thank you.

Liturgical Walk-Through

Saturday, April 8, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

For everyone participating in the special services during Holy Week. This will be a time of instruction and clarification as to the many different roles of the lay ministers.

Palm Crosses

April 8, beginning at 10:00 a.m.  Come out and learn the nearly lost art of making palm crosses.  We’ll need a couple of hundred made prior to Palm Sunday.  The more the merrier.  While others are learning their particular roles for Holy Week services, you can be part of the fun of making crosses and learning a new art form.  See you there!

Preparing Vestments for Holy Week

Please check the vestments you wear and take them home for cleaning prior to Holy Week.  They will need to be returned for use by Sunday, April 9th.  Thank you.

Earth Day March for Science

Earth Day is April 22nd.  If interested in participating or ordering a t-shirt, contact Courtney Green at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Norman at 321-3020.
