Church website update

Just updated the church website. Usually this is a rather simple matter, updating the "Announcements" page, and the dates on the main page and "Announcements" link. Probably nobody else notices those, but it's a reminder to me to keep the website up-to-date. Otherwise it would be really easy to repeat one church's website: it noted upcoming events that were now several years in the past!

I did bring the Announcements page up to date as best I could -- it will get easier as we settle into new patterns.

But the biggest job was updating the Clergy page with the information and photo Fr. Davis e-mailed me.

And once that was done I discovered to my dismay that last month's Christus Rex (the province's newsletter) was not up either -- and as usual, it's well done. I didn't know until today that St. Mark's makes communion wafers, or even the process for making them.

    You should come visit and you could see the "bread room" where the hosts are made.

    The irons look like waffle makers, and the batter made with only flour and water is put on them and pressed by the designs (chi ro and such). The iron opens, and the extremely fragile slightly shiny sheet with the imprint of several wafers is lifted off.

    Each sheet gets trimmed, and then several sheets are stacked together in the cupboard where there are bowls of water for rehydrating just enough so that they are not too brittle to cut.

    The individual wafers are cut by one of the hand-directed stamp press things, which have cutting cylinders that are exactly the right size, and then they're packaged up in paper that makes them looks like Necco wafers.

    Come see us! We'll show you around!

    It sounds interesting and I'd love to come, camera in had! Somehow we'll get down (if we can find a replacement organist).
