Everyone can use a PAL Jan. 18,2019
The Rev. Wesley Hills of St. Lukes Episcopal Church in Dixon shared some
"conversation and some "spirits with the Holy Spirit," as he bills it, on Thursday night during his Priest At Large
(PAL) ministry at The Crystal Cork in downtown Dixon. Hills heads out into the community for public rap sessions twice a week and meets with anybody who shows up to talk about whatever's on their mind. Before becoming a man of the cloth Hills was a man of the three-peice suit, serving as a trial lawyer for 12 years in San Diego. He can be found at Books of First, 202 W. First St.,Dixon, from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays and from 5 - 7p.m. Thursdays at the Crystal Cork, 219 W. First, Dixon .

STATIONS OF THE CROSS -
Apologies from the senior warden! Stations of the Cross, a lay-led service that follows the final path of Christ from His condemnation by Pilate to His death on the cross and entombment, has been a regular part of our Lenten tradition for the past several years, but I am late in getting it onto our schedule.
This service will be offered each Wednesday in Lent at 5:15 p.m., immediately prior to our 6:00 p.m. Lenten meal and program. All are welcome to participate as they are comfortable – whether by walking the Way of the Cross or sitting in a pew and meditating on the stations as they are recited. Please join us in the nave for this meaningful Lenten discipline.
