Every year we host our annual Pancake Supper to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday (known in some countries as Pancake Day) is a day in February or March, preceding Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent), which is celebrated in some countries by consuming pancakes. Our Pancake Supper features different selections of pancakes with a live band for listening or dancing after the feasting. Click here for additional information.
Our Annual Book Sale is usually held every year in June. This is a great opportunity to pick up books, at a very reasonable price, for your summer reading. You can peruse through our collection of fine books, paperbacks, hardbacks, CDs, DVDs and books on tape. One year we even had a book signing by a couple of authors. This is a popular event for book dealers and connoisseurs of books. Click here for additional information.
Every fall we hold our annual parish retreat at the beautiful, serene, bucolic setting of Bishop's Ranch in Healdsburg, CA. We enjoy a time of sharing, theological reflection, community, fun activities, music, singing, and always great food. If you have never been to Bishop's Ranch this is a great opportunity not to be missed.

In 2015, we launched our brand new initiative, "Sunset Community Music | Arts," where you can enjoy mostly free (occasionally, donations or a small fee may be requested) concerts and programs, produced and performed by members of the local community. The series, thus far, includes a travelogue series (e.g. India, Peru, Israel, Asia, and others), vocal, and instrumental concerts. Click here for additional information.
The ECW is an organization throughout the Episcopal Church, which unites women in a program of worship, fellowship, and service to God, parish, diocese, and church. At Incarnation we participate in workshops, luncheons, and fundraising activities. On Tuesday mornings, we gather to worship, and stay to enjoy fellowship, discussion, lunch, and to work on projects for our annual holiday bazaar. We sponsor two major fund raising events a year: a book sale in June and a bazaar in November. The funds that we raise are given to the parish as a pledge to the budget.
