Fr. Furman will host a Rector’s Forum Adult Sunday School online gathering on ZOOM this Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. in order to reflect more thoroughly on the lessons appointed for the day, and how Holy Scripture can enlighten our understanding and response to contemporary questions of moral theology and ethics. Mother Marie plans to join in as well. Our format is informal, and open to any parishioner or guest who wants to participate.

You Guessed it! It’s time to celebrate St. Francis Day! WE are going to offer our St. Francis Day Pet Blessing as a DRIVE THROUGH!!! Watch for more details, but on October 4 between 4 and 5 p.m. show your pet some love by hopping in the car and coming by for a blessing.

Black and white or color photographs are welcome and can be taken with a phone or camera. Please email your picture and any questions to email@example.com by December 12, 2020.
