The March Calendar is now available at church (after being sick this week, I have yet to catch up with the online calendar-- that will be done soon.)

Also at church you can find the 2011 sheet of Lenten Fasting Rules. One item was left out, as it hadn't yet been scheduled-- a new item this year, a communion fast from noon for the Holy Thursday liturgy, which will be an evening liturgy held before the service of the Twelve Gospels, with a brief supper in between. That's not till April, of course, so more about that next month.

Meanwhile, tomorrow is the last meat day. So clear out the hot dogs and chicken;  and after Sunday prepare to enjoy your pancakes, fish, veggie omelettes  and cheese pizza this week!

A week from tomorrow, on Sunday March 6th, we will have Forgiveness Vespers after lunch (where we may eat all foods EXCEPT for meat). The church membership has increased a lot, so if you are very ascetic you can just let it hit you like a ton of bricks. But if not,  you might want to do a little, um, training in the week leading up to it.....

One additional note: Abbotsford Dinner & Study at Sava's this week only will be on TUESDAY March 1st. at 6 pm. I believe it's pot luck? Anything but meat.

ps. I couldn't take the rain anymore, so I changed the Spruce Island template. :-) If any of you photo-savvy folks would like to try customizing it with a more relevant background image, please give it a whirl!

Green's Open House Warming

Saturday, February 26, 2:30pm - 5:00pm at our town house in Aldergrove.

We are finally getting settled into our new house and would like to invite you over to see it. Feel free to stop by for a visit. We will have some snacks.

There are several "Visitor" parking spots scattered throughout the complex. If these are all full, please DON'T park in someone else's spot. They don't like that.

If you don't have our address or phone please e-mail

Be Back Tomorrow, by Sheree Plett

Kay. So please pardon the bad formatting. It's been years since I've posted on here.
This is what our parties usually look like, and involve Aaron totally embellishing some story to make himself seem, way more herioc.
The pic to the left is Jenn and Felix awaiting Ori's arrival.
I was trying to dig out a pic of Jenn and her hubby Alex, but alas it's not going to happen.

Your kids at St. Johns invite you to come celebrate the new addition to our family. It's a baby shower for Jennifer and Alex Wicks-Ness.

(that's the part I typed first but it totally slid format-wise.)

This is kind of a big deal for us. And well, we're happy for any excuse to have a party.

Home of Peter and Judy Choi, this coming Saturday. 2-4pm. All are welcome.

(here's an old group shot of us, from a while back... some hopefully familiar faces)

Lovely party host: Judy Choi.

842 66th Ave, Vancouver

A coupl'a blocks from the new Cambie and Marine Skytrain.

Ori and his big bro Felix.

The Pasivirtas are warming up their house in the hood at around the same time, and celebrating Mr. Zeke's birthday, so there's two reasons to come out and pay your old buddy old pals a visit, if you can swing it.
If you have any questions, you can email me at:
Much Love to All. xx
PS. Oh and if you're planning on coming, please don't be bothered about a gift. We've decided that rather than clutter up the already well appointed Wicks-Ness household (it's baby #3), we're treating them to a deluxe day of pro house cleaning service, so that they can simply put their feet up and gaze adoringly at one another, for atleast one day this year, so if you do come, just bring a twoonie or a twenty, to toss into the bucket of goodness.
