Easter Letter

Read Mother Laurie's Easter Letter here:  Christ is Risen Indeed!

Soup Supper on Thursday, April 17th 8 pm

On the night of the Last Supper, Jesus shared a meal with his disciples before being taken to his crucifixion. We will share a simple meal together before our Maundy Thursday service of soup and bread, but we need soup makers. The church will provide bread, butter and beverages. 
If you can make soup or a simple dessert, please contact the Parish Office at 762-9210 go let us know.

Bells are Ringing!

Remember to bring small bells to the Easter Vigil service on Saturday night at 7:30 pm to ring in the Resurrection of Our Lord! The Easter Vigil is one of the most ancient services of the church, and it begins in the darkness of the tomb and then continues with the literal flame of the new fire, and the bursting forth of new life as we sing praises to the Risen King. 
Please join the congregations of St. John's, St. Ann's in Amsterdam, and Church of the Good Shepherd in Canajoharie as we celebrate this holiest of nights together.
