The Sisters of Bede are pleased to host an Easter Brunch following the 10 AM service on April 9. Brunch will include gluten-free, dairy free, and vegetarian options. Donations will be collected in Luther Hall before the brunch. All proceeds benefit Friends of Music. 


Our St. Bede’s clothing table at Neighbors 4 Neighbors has been so hugely popular, we have been wiped clean of all men’s outer wear garments.  We welcome any and all donations, new or gently-used, specifically for men in all sizes. Hoodies are in greatest demand. Our next event is scheduled for Saturday, April 15. Donations may be left in the narthex. Thank you everyone!

Neighbors 4 Neighbors, which provides medical personnel, clothing, food and other services for unhoused people, is returning to St. Bede's on April 15. The work starts around 8 a.m.,with setting up, and continues until around 4 p.m. We are always looking for volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks, including the sorting of clothing. For more information, please contact a member of the Mission Committee or click here.


On April 1, Luther Hall was the site of a Passover Seder. The event was a serious yet festive experience enhanced by the beautiful voice of Cynthia Rothschild singing Passover songs in Hebrew. Praise and thanks also go to Ina Klem and Lana Spraker for their culinary and decorative contributions

The SOB events serve as fundraisers but also as an opportunity for fellowship and wonderful food. Thank you to everyone who is hosting a venue this year!

Young adults engage with faith, build community outside church walls

By Sarah Trombetti

[Episcopal News Service] When sisters Annie Hodges and Kate Greer decided during college that they wanted to be confirmed together, they started to talk about faith. They didn’t stop after confirmation.

“We talked on the phone a lot during COVID when we couldn’t be together or at church in person,” Greer said.

Between heavy and light-hearted conversations, “We would crack each other up and be like ‘People need to hear this,’” Hodges said.

Although she originally meant that jokingly, Hodges also knew that some young Episcopalians didn’t share the same fellowship as she and Greer. Statistics about the decline in church attendance in the United States reflect the near absence of twentysomethings — an estimated 31% of people raised Christian disaffiliate between the ages of 15 to 29 — at some Episcopal churches on Sunday mornings.
