Holden Evening Prayer Sunday evenings in Lent, 5:00p.m., Nave. Holden Evening Prayer was written in the mid 1980’s by Marty Haugen while serving as the musician-in-residence at Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center in the North Cascade Mountains of Washington State, called by some the Taize’ of the U.S. This contemplative setting of vespers follows the traditional form of the evening office while using contemporary and expansive language. Prayers, chant, hymns, readings and silence contribute to the reflectiveness of this evening liturgy. It is a liturgy appropriate for all sorts and conditions of spiritual seekers and pilgrims. This liturgy will be offered at 5:00 p.m. in the Nave beginning Sunday, February 22 and running through Sunday, March 22. For further information contact Todd Donatelli at the Cathedral.

BLUE BAGS will be given out this Sunday.  Help feed hungry children right here at home by shopping the list attached to the empty bag and filling your bag with items such as: cereal, peanut butter, jelly, canned fruits and veggies, macaroni & cheese, diapers (all sizes), maybe even a treat like Teddy Grahams! Return it full on March 15th. 1 in 4 children live in poverty right here in Buncombe County! The Episcopal Peace Fellowship of WNC wants to alleviate hunger by “Feeding all souls.” For more information or to learn how you can help, call Martha Fullington 684-2083.

This is a secure site and you do not need a Paypal account.


Church of the advocate: Even the homeless who can spend nights in a shelter must be out during the day, so in bitter weather the Clothes Closet most urgently needs men’s jackets, coats, thermal underwear, sweatshirts, hoodies, warm vests, mittens and gloves, warm hats and scarves, sweaters, warm socks, sneakers and boots. Our women need jackets, sneakers, boots, underwear, long casual dresses, gloves/mittens, warm hats, and bags. We’re out of blankets and sleeping bags, and some members of our congregation don’t have access to shelters. Your donations could not be more welcome in this weather.


The flowers are to the glory of God and in loving memory of Patricia Dwyer Huber
