Epiphany approaches …

Epiphany Services There will be two opportunities to celebrate the visit of the three wise men to the infant Jesus, and for one of them we need two more wise personages! Could that be you?
The first opportunity is to join with the congregations of the Leonhardskirche and Old Catholic church for a mainly German service on 6th January itself. This service wil take place at 19:00 in the Leonhardskirche (where we held our Carol Service) Eric will be leading the representation of St. Catherine’s Anglican congregation. If you would like to let him know you are planning to join him please e-mail warden@stcatherines-stuttgat.de
On Sunday 7th January, at our normal time of 11:15, we will be celebrating the Epiphany in our own service with a visit from three wise personages. If you like dressing up maybe you can volunteer to be one of them? A beautiful singing voice is not a prerequisite for wisdom, but if we have volunteers who would also like to sing a verse of We three kings as a solo then this might happen too!
Please contact Eric warden@stcatherines-stuttgat.de if you would either like to sing or dress as a wise-person and he will give you more details of what is expected. Costumes can be provided.

Hymns for Sunday
How brightly shines the morning star… although we’ll be singing in English
We three Kings…
As with gladness men of old…
– Songs of thankfulness and praise…

Women’s Group Our next meeting will be on Thursday, 18th January 2018, so back to the third Thursday in the month which we try to keep to unless there are public holidays, several of us are away etc. Having stuck the stickers on the carol booklets before the carol service, our job this time will be to go through the box and sort out all the carol booklets from the order of service and fliers and count how many carol booklets we have left. There will still be plenty of time for tea, coffee, biscuits and a chat so look forward to seeing you there.
