Advent At The Parsonage

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

After Thanksgiving we plunged into Advent. Thankfully with traditions in place we can almost easily get right too it. Also, thankfully, I had thought ahead and bought some new blue and pink candles to have on hand for our table wreath.


St. Martin’s Day – Nov. 11

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

We celebrate the Feast of St. Martin late this year. Phil and I had been out of town during this feast so we made it up once we returned. I can’t let St. Martin’s day go by uncelebrated. After all, when else would I get to enjoy those delicious Almond Horn cookies?!

Feast of St. Michael

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Sept. 29: The Feast of St. Michael and All Angels. Holy Cross and St. Michael’s day mark the beginning of my favorite season and kick off so many delightful holy days. Today we thank God for creating His heavenly host. We remember the battle in Heaven, the fierce warrior angels led by Michael and our victory over the great dragon, that old serpent Satan.

“Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.”

Revelation 12: 10-12
