CONNECTING WHO WE ARE
TO WHAT WE DO
September 27, 2023
In memory of the late Julia McGirt, who passed away last year and served as organist at St. B's until her retirement in 2020, a piano has been generously donated to St. B's. Last Sunday, David Madeira, our Director of Music, marked the instrument's arrival during Sunday's services. We deeply appreciate this generous gift to our church.
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
, 8:30 & 11:00 a.m.
Please join us this Sunday, October 1, for Holy Eucharist at either 8:30 or 11:00 a.m. The 8:30 service will be live-streamed and available on demand for later viewing. For Families: The nursery will open at 8:15 a.m. for ages 0–3 years, and the 8:30 service will include a children's homily for 3 yrs through 6th grade.
Blessing of the Animals and A Liturgy for All Creation will begin at 4 p.m. in St. B’s Garden. We welcome all creatures (including stuffed animals) and those who enjoy the beauty of the earth. Bring a photo of a pet who isn't comfortable around others so that they can still receive a blessing. In addition to animal blessings, we will include prayers and praise for all creation. This is a great opportunity to invite a neighbor or a friend!
Christian formation continues for all ages starting at 10 a.m., including children and youth. Fr. Josh continues his adult formation class, Surprised by Grace. Join him as he explores the revelatory nature of God’s grace through scriptural, cultural, and literary examples, as well as personal experiences.
