Passover 'Seder' Supper is also when Jesus instituted the Eucharist. We invite faithful, curious Christians to appreciate the Last Supper as a Last Seder for Jesus and his disciples and to experience the ritual and meaning of that meal and how it is significant for the Christian understanding of the Eucharist.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED ...for Meal Preparation, Meal Service, Cleanup, Liturgy Planning, Readers, Foot Washing, and Vigil Coordination.
Please let Father George know of your interest in helping with this most memorable and meaningful evening.
Did you know?
Passover is the great Jewish feast of redemption & liberation, the memorial of the Israelite's deliverance of their bondange in Egypt. Christian observance of Jesus Last Supper that commemorates the Exodus is called the Seder, when the family shares in a meal to symbolize their consciousness as a people and their faith in the future.
You have been so generous that we have been able to send Mother Tulia $100 each month for her discretionary fund (which she usu-ally uses for the reconstruction of their facilities) and now we are sending $20 each month for someone there to manage the distribution of purified water.
They are using the temporary tanks that we sent last November and they seem to be working well. We are still planning to install a permanent system this fall. Three of us have to take courses offered by Living Waters for the World. So next September Marie Brian, Richard Widera and I will be going to Mississippi for those courses. I call Mother Tulia every third Sunday of the month to stay in touch. She always sends her greetings and love to us and I send her ours.
The ESL (English classes) are going well with about 25-30 students attending. Marie Brian, Maureen Menosky, Marion Harvard, Dr. Rogelio and I are teachers and Denise Cameron is our Thursday hostess. We still need a Monday hostess. It would be a great help to us if someone would volunteer to come on Monday.
