The Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost, August 23rd, 2015

Our Altar Guild attends us in such vital and consistent ways, and nearly always behind the scenes, out-of-sight, and, too often in consequence, out of mind. Their aim is the glory of God, and they achieve that end.

Time arrives for us to reflect a bit of that glory back their way!

The work of the Altar Guild requires funding, and funds have fallen perilously low. The suggested $100 gift for the weekly Altar Flower and Votive Candle donations is considerably below what these things cost. It is the habit of the Altar Guild, concerned as they are with the beauty of worship, to provide flowers and candles (and much else) whether or not donations prove adequate.

Support for the work of the Altar Guild may take a variety of forms…under-writing Altar Flowers, gifts and endowments to the Guild, one time donations, and perhaps a hug to a member of one of our hard-working Teams!

Peace and Blessing,

CONFIRMATION is September 13th. Make certain to register with Isabel Roa at

Holy Baptism is next scheduled for the Feast of All Saints’ November 1st. Contact the Rector or Isabel for baptismal applications.
