Pohick Post

March 2017

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

Lent gets a late start this year, with Ash Wednesday falling on March 1. So that everyone can participate, we'll be offering services four times on that day—at 7 am, noon, 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm. The following week, our series of Lenten Supper, Studies and Services will begin on Wednesday, March 8 at 6:30 pm in the Parish House and run over five weeks.

For the Adults, the Rector will offer a class entitled, “American Folk Religion,” while our Seminarian will lead a class with the title, "Lessons from the Plains of Africa." Our teens and pre-teens will be doing a study on the Beatitudes, and the younger children will learn about prayer. Childcare is available for ages three and under during the class time. The evenings begin with a potluck supper (6:30 - 7:05 pm), followed by the studies (7:10 - 7:50 pm). These are capped off by a worship service from 8 - 8:30 pm featuring Celtic prayers and music.

Before it all begins, our EYC will be sponsoring our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on February 28, from 5 - 7 pm. Later in the month, we'll pause to commemorate St. Patrick with our traditional Irish dinner of Corn Beef and Cabbage and other traditional fare on Saturday, March 18 beginning at 6 pm.

In this month's EPost, our Rector gives a preview of his Lenten series on American Folk Religion, reflecting upon his own family heritage as a descendant of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Elsewhere, our Assistant offers and extended football analogy for the church, while our Wardens write about vestry and property committee actions and plans.

In the Persecution Corner column, Bob Munson writes about the difficult climate for Christians in Yeman, while Don Brownlee does a round-up on goings on around the Anglican Communion.

Read about these events and much, much more in this month's EPost!
