20 October 19 Pent Pr 24



Good stewardship requires that we acknowledge God’s gifts, take an inventory of what we have been given, and decide how to use what we have been given. Pray this prayer on Friday, October 18 and the week following:

Almighty God, whose loving hand has given me all that I possess: Grant me grace that I may honor you with my substance, and, remembering the account which I must one day give, may be a faithful steward of your bounty, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God has provided us with all we need in abundance.  It is up to us to be good stewards of all he has given us. Pray this prayer this week (especially on Friday, October 25) reflecting on our management of God’s gifts:

O merciful Creator, whose hand is open wide to satisfy the needs of every living creature: Make us, we beseech thee, ever thankful for thy loving providence; and grant that we, remembering the account that we must one day give, may be faithful stewards of thy bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth,  one God, now and forever. Amen.

All Saints’/All Souls’ Remembrances On November 3, we will have two opportunities to gather together to remember and to give thanks for many special people in our lives whom we honor and are now with our Lord.

  • SUNDAY, November 3, we will remember and celebrate those whose lives and witness have deeply and profoundly touched our own in a special Memorial Concert, sung by our own Parish Choir and Soloists with Chamber Orchestra. Those loved ones remembered in the morning services will be commemorated then, as well, especially honoring the memory of the Reverend Alan Edmiston and all those loved ones who have died in the past year. Information is below.

Episcopal Visitation:Bishop Geralyn Wolf, Assistant Bishop of the Diocese will visit us on Sunday, December 1, the First Sunday of Advent for our Diocesan Episcopal Visitation.
