9 AM FORUM: Why Do We Do That?
(this Sunday in the Great Hall)
Led by Canon Brooks Mason, The Rev. Canon Allisyn Thomas, and Don Mitchell, Cathedral
Verger, this forum will talk about the form of the Sunday services and why we do
such things as crossing ourselves at certain prayers, bowing at the cross when
it passes in procession, and wear different color vestments at different times of
the year. All are invited to come and ask questions because chances are others have
the same questions as well!

EXPLORING TODAY’S READINGS – Join The Rev. Canon Jack Lindquist’s study of the day’s
readings and Gospel in the Fireside Room at 9 am.

SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY – 9 am, Cathedral Parlor. Dr. Stewart Dadmun will lead this
a chance to slow down and reflect on how God is working in our lives. Sometimes
serious, sometimes humorous, but always interesting. Submit your own blog anytime

past weekend. Congratulations to Carolyn! Here’s the link to the official commendation

SOME VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

a chance to help the Cathedral –

* Near the end of a service you may see a few members of the congregation receiving
a blessing and then a send-off from the celebrant. These members are Eucharistic
Ministers, i.e., lay people who take communion to shut-ins, persons in care facilities,
the disabled or elderly-anyone unable to travel and join us for worship-for all
at St. Paul’s are God’s beloved and a member of St. Paul’s family. If you know of
someone who desires to receive communion but is unable to attend church in person,
make this known to a clergy person. Most likely a visit from a Eucharistic Minister
(EM) can be arranged. “One of the most joyful and satisfying vocations I’ve had
in my Church life,” said Gary Arps, Eucharistic Minister. And if you feel a calling
to become an EM, please contact The Rev. Canon Dorothy Curry at the cathedral office,
(619) 298-7261.
* Have you ever wanted to serve as an Usher for the 10:30 AM service at the Cathedral?
Now is your chance! There are a few openings available. Please contact Lucinda Parsons
is only one Sunday a month. It is a great ministry and a fun way to meet many new
friends!

Using Me to Find You:
From Alonement to Atonement
with Dr. Pat Lindquist

In our first event we will explore why being alone frightens us-and how this transfers
to ‘fear of the stranger.’ In Alonement to Atonement (At-one-ment with God and others),
Pat will examine our potential to replace self-and-other judgment with compassion,
doubt with kindness, and fear with openness. Pat Lindquist, Ph.D., is a psychologist
in private practice in San Diego and is the wife of Canon Jack Lindquist. Lunch
is on your own from noon to 1 pm.

how to set aside behaviors that detract from our life mission.
* March 26 – Progoff Journaling with The Rev. Mike Russell (8:30 am-12 noon), exploring
structured journal exercises relating to natural life cycles.
* April 2 – Mindfulness, Meditation, and Prayer with Dale Wilson (8:30 am-12 noon),
examining mindfulness, spiritual practice, and healing.
* April 16 – Spirituality of Recovery with The Rev. Bud Williams (8:30 am-12 noon),
looking into fundamental aspects in fighting alcoholism and drug dependency.

On each Saturday we start with coffee and continental breakfast at 8:30, with the
program starting at 9:00 am.

LENTEN LAUDS –

Mar 19, 26, Apr 2, 9, 16

Come and experience Lauds, a quietly beautiful and peaceful ancient monastic Office
(prayer time) that draws the Church together in prayers of praise at the start of
the day. This just might be the new spiritual practice for you to try during Lent
that opens new doors in your spiritual journey! We will be chanting Lauds from Lauds
and Vespers, the book used by the brothers of the Order of the Holy Cross of Mt.
or chanting background necessary. Listen or participate as the Spirit moves you.
“From the rising of the sun to its setting, praised be the name of the Lord.” Ps.
