Note from Father Jason


Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Andrew's,


For Holy Week, I encourage you to join me in worshiping via live-streamed services from our Cathedral, as follows:


Palm Sunday 11:00 am, April 5

Maundy Thursday 7:00 pm, April 9

Good Friday 12:00 noon, April 10

Easter Vigil 7:00 pm, April 11


The Diocese has gathered resources for families to use for Holy Week; they may be found in a PDF here.


We will live stream our Easter Sunday service at 10:00 am via our Facebook page or our website, but we will not be streaming a 10:00 service for Palm Sunday. The Vestry has decided that all of our Easter offerings (apart from pledges and designated gifts) will be given directly to Arundel House of Hope.



Streaming audio of the 8:00 service will continue to be available via Zoom either by visiting https://zoom.us/j/7858850465 or by telephoning 301-715-8592 and using meeting ID 785-885-0465. There will be an 8:00 service this Sunday, Palm Sunday, and all are welcome to stick around on Zoom afterwards for virtual coffee hour.


Speaking of palms, Terry McLean will be dropping them off at your homes over the weekend en route to the grocery store. (Thanks, Terry!) If you would like her to bring extra for you to share with neighbors, please let her know (truthmclean@verizon.net).


We appreciate everyone's faithfulness in giving during this difficult time; while we are saving on utilities most of our other costs are fairly fixed. A number of our people have begun using the Givelify app recently, and have found it to be a very convenient way to give to St. Andrew's. If you would like help setting up Givelify please let me know. If you prefer not to use an app, you may make an electronic donation to St. Andrew's through the Diocese's website at this link. We are of course continuing to count and deposit checks sent by mail, and we hope you will consider consolidating multiple weeks' gifts into a single check to minimize the amount of paper we have to handle. If you have any questions about giving to St. Andrew's please don't hesitate to contact our Treasurer, Pat Quick, at treasurer@standrewspasadena.com.


The Rector's Discretionary Fund is a means of enabling me to work on the church's behalf to care for those in need in our community. I am always glad to receive gifts to this fund (either electronically or by checks made out to St. Andrew's with Rector's Discretionary Fund on the memo line), especially at this time when need is increasing significantly. If you are facing job loss or a reduction in your income please don't hesitate to reach out to me.


Bishop Sutton has authorized clergy to hear confessions by phone or Zoom, or in person if absolutely necessary. I will continue to be available from 5:30-6:30 on Tuesday evenings, and by appointment, and I will be saying Evening Prayer at 6:30 on Tuesday evenings via Zoom. You may access Evening Prayer by using the same numbers as the 8:00 service: https://zoom.us/j/7858850465 or by phone 301-715-8592, meeting ID 785-885-0465.


We are also continuing via Zoom, at the same numbers (https://zoom.us/j/7858850465 or by phone 301-715-8592, meeting ID 785-885-0465), our 9:00-9:30 Sunday Bible study going through the Bible in a year. Any and all are welcome to join in. After Easter I will be resuming the Memento Mori series on death, dying and everything that comes with it via Zoom after church, about 11:15.


Our Prayers of the People are attached to this email, and we will be attaching them along with bulletins while we are restricted to live-streaming.


This Holy Week will be like no other that any of us has experienced. My prayer for you, and for myself, is that we will be faithful to receive what God has for us however it comes.


--Fr. Jason
