Socorro is invited to participate in an ecumenical Easter service Sunday starting at 6:30 a.m. on the Tech golf course at the duck pond behind the playground at Macey Center. Parking is at the north Macey Center lot.

The service is non-denominational, and features the Easter brass ensemble, Dr. Eileen Comstock directing. Officiants from San Miguel Catholic Church, Epiphany Episcopal Church, Socorro First Baptist Church and St. Paul’s Methodist Church will lead a short service after the concert.

Immediately following the service, everyone is invited to a pancake breakfast hosted by St. Paul’s Methodist Church at the corner of Neel and Leroy streets (the southeast corner of the Tech campus).

St. Paul’s parishioner Dan Kloss will be in charge of the breakfast, as he has been for the past 35 years. He expects anywhere from 30-75 people to feast on eggs, sausage, pancakes, juice and coffee from 7:30 to 9 a.m.

Don’t worry about the food running out, because Kloss says he can handle any crowd.

“It’s sort of hard, but I’ve learned how to do it,” he said.

Although there is no charge for the breakfast, donations will be accepted.
