full moon“The heavens declare the glory of God!”—Psalm 19

Come join the Rector and share hot chocolate and/or tea, and enjoy telescopic or naked-eye views of the full lunar eclipse the night of Sunday, January 20 and early morning, Monday, January 21. We will gather at the start of the partial eclipse at 10:33 p.m. and conclude sometime around 1:00 a.m.

Join us anytime. We will gather in the narthex and have scopes set up in the circle drive in front of Holy Comforter.

Please check the weather forecast or look up at the sky before you leave home—there’s not much to see if it's really cloudy, especially if it's precipitating. Partial clouds can still work!

An email will be sent to the parish by 10:00 pm confirming if weather conditions are good to proceed!
