Shrove Tuesday officially ends the season of Epiphany and marks the beginning of the penitential season of Lent. The name Shrove Tuesday is derived from the verb "to shrive" which means to confess and receive absolution. During the Middle Ages, "shriveners" (priests) heard people's confessions in preparation for Lent. As certain foods were restricted during Lent, people would prepare feasts to consume those foods that would become spoiled during the next 40 days. The English tradition of eating pancakes came about as a way to use as much milk, fats and eggs as possible before Ash Wednesday.
Shrove Tuesday is the time to make a special point of self-examination, of considering what wrongs you need to repent and what amendments of life or areas of spiritual growth you especially need to ask God's help in dealing with. Fr. David and Fr. Bill are available for consultation or private confession upon request.
Thankful for day that is past? Come and give thanks and ask for God's protection through the coming night.
This ancient and simple service lasts about 20-30 minutes and gives one a chance to slow down, pause and thank God for the day that is past, and is set with candlelight and incense.
Known as Compline (pronounced comp-lin), it is also known as Night Prayer, or Prayers at the End of the Day, and is the final church service of the day in the Christian tradition of canonical hours. The English word Compline is derived from the Latin completorium, as Compline is the completion of the working day. The word was first used in this sense about the beginning of the 6th century by St. Benedict in his Rule.
A typical Compline Prayer can be found at http://www.bcponline.org/DailyOffice/compline.html

The Anglican approach to reading and interpreting the Bible was first articulated by Richard Hooker in the 16th Century. While Christians universally acknowledge the Bible (or the Holy Scriptures) as the Word of God and completely sufficient to our reconciliation to God, what the Bible says must always speak to us in our own time and place.
St. Barnabas is an Episcopal Church and part of the Anglican Communion. This means we are both sacramental and mission oriented. We are a Total Ministry, or Ministry of All the Baptized, congregation, where all are encouraged to participate as each is called by God to do. This means some are called to help with worship, music, teaching, pastoral care, hospitality, greeting, ushering, intercession (prayers), altar guild duties or reading in addition to ordained ministry.
Our ministry team includes Father David Glaser and Father Bill Stech, our priests, and Jan Varady commissioned to pastoral care, Nancy Scott commissioned to pastoral care and hospitality, and Kathy O'Connell, Christian education coordinator and administrator.
We use the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. For your convenience, we use easy-to-follow printed bulletins. Our music is wide-ranging, from traditional hymns to contemporary praise choruses. During our service feel free to stand, sit or kneel as you are able. We take an offering, which helps support the church and our outreach to the community, and we appreciate any gift you make. We hope you will find in our service a renewed certainty that God has visited His people.
We welcome you!
