Bible Study continues on Sundays at 9am and Tuesdays at 10:30am. All are invited!

Our Stewardship Season has begun! For the next several weeks we will be printing a weekly meditation from The Episcopal Network for Stewardship 2021 series “Every Perfect Gift.” The first of these installments, printed on page 3, invites us to consider the Gift of Relationships. Each meditation this season will focus on the many gifts that we receive from God and how me might respond in thanksgiving. Commitment Sunday will be on November 28th, the Sunday in Thanksgiving weekend, and the First Sunday of Advent.

Special Events at the 10 am Eucharist to look forward to the next three Sundays:

  • Next Sunday, October 3: Baptism of Madison Marie Jackson, daughter of Alexandra and Patrick
  • Sunday, October 10: Outdoor Eucharist with Blessing of the Animals celebrating St. Francis
  • Sunday, October 17: Our Parish Choir will return to the Chancel following all established norms for singing during this pandemic period. Anyone who has not sung with the choir, but would like to give it a try should speak with Mark.
