The 9:00 a.m. Eucharist has moved to its summertime location in the Chapel Garden where it will remain, weather permitting, through Sunday, September 1.

As is our custom, the 10:00 a.m. combined Eucharist on Homecoming Sunday, September 8, will be followed by an “Urban Picnic” in the Chapel Garden and Keith Hall. The main dishes, pulled chicken, pork, and a vegetarian option, as well as beverages and ice cream will be provided. Parishioners whose last name begins with letters A through M are asked to bring a green or fruit salad. Parishioners whose last name begins with letters N through Z are asked to bring a side dish. Monetary contributions to help offset the cost of beverages and ice cream are welcome. For more information, contact the Parish Office.
