Announcements

From Fr. John: English poet, William Wordsworth, wrote: “What we have loved, others will love, and we will teach them how.” We can’t tell our friends and family what they should be. Only they can make that choice and we can grant or withhold our blessings on their choices. We can tell them where we came from, and what our grandmothers and grandfathers in the faith learned as well as why that learning is important to pass on. The Christian story is unfinished and there are chapters that only future generations can write. We can pass along not only that crucial learning and heritage, but a church home that generations before us left as their legacy. A place where God speaks into time from beyond all time. And so, as you prayerfully discern the time, talent and treasure that you are prepared to pledge for 2018, consider also the legacy to which you are contributing. When you are ready, there is a basket in the narthex now where you can leave your pledge, or you can mail them in or even leave them in the collection plate. We will build a budget based on what we will gather by next week, Dec. 17th. We will bless whatever pledges come on January 7th. And thank you for your discernment and your support.

Quiet mornings in Advent: On Sunday mornings in Advent, anyone interested may join us from 9:00 to 9:30 for a silent meditation before the Mass. We will gather in the library unless there are enough people participating to warrant moving to a larger quiet space.

Advent Class: The Rev. Canon John Fergueson is continuing a class on “Praying the Liturgy” on Tuesdays through Advent. He is leading the class twice each Tuesday – once at 3:00 p.m. and again at 7:00 p.m. so that there are opportunities for people to attend before evening or after work. Bring a light dinner at around 6:15 if you want. There will be a fourth gathering later in 2018 and perhaps more!
