EASTER SERVICE AT SHRINE MONT
Given we have a maximum number of people we can have at Shrine Mont, registration is now closed for the 11 a.m. Easter service. We’ll be at the lower pavilion. With respect to safety requirements, everyone must wear a mask the entire time (even outdoors) and social distance. Unfortunately, we won’t have a Coffee Hour after.

For those unable to attend, you’re welcome to watch the Woodstock Ministerial Alliance Sunrise service, which is linked on our website, or join the National Cathedral for their service at 11:15 a.m. If you have questions, please email Mother Kathy and/or Melissa.

EASTER COLORING BOOKLET
If you’d like more copies or to share the Easter coloring booklet from the Easter bags, there is a PDF on our website. We’d love to see your creativity, so once you’re done coloring, email pics of your favorite page(s) to Melissa to share in upcoming issues of The Beckford Connection and/or on Facebook.
