St. Saviour’s

Mi-Careme Party Friday, April 4 at 6:30 pm! When Tim and Bob were in the Canadian Maritimes last year, they learned about a European tradition from the Middle Ages still practiced in some small communities in Quebec. Called Mi-Careme and always falling near the mid-point of Lent (also around the time we in this latitude are getting really really sick of winter), it's a fun festival including food, disguises, and games as a brief break from Lenten severity. Our version will be a low-key chance to set down all the work and gather for some fun together. We'll provide snacks, beer and wine. We'll also have games and entertainment. This event is stress-free: you don't have to bring a thing, or even RSVP! Join us and don't suffer through Lent alone! Contact Liz Graves at 266-3109 for more details.


Sunday, April 6 at 3 pm.  The St. Saviour’s Festival Choir is once again preparing a Lenten program which will take place on Sunday, April 6 at 3:00 pm.  We will present Mozart’s beautiful Missa Brevis in F Major accompanied by strings and organ, as well as several other appropriate anthems.
