Sunday, July 23rd marks the Feast of St Mary Magdalene, our “matron saint.” We’ll celebrate the occasion with a labyrinth walk at 8:00am, special observances at the 9:00am service, and a festive potluck brunch following the service. Please sign up to provide an egg dish (breakfast casserole, etc), muffins, or fruit to share on this fun occasion. The sign-up sheet will be in the entryway on Sunday morning, and on the bulletin board by the office during the week. Due to limited oven space, bring your egg dishes wrapped and insulated to keep them warm until the potluck. Contact Kay Ingram with questions.
So far, SMM parishioners have generously given 20 Konbit Scholarships for students at St. Paul’s School in Petit Trou. We’re halfway to our goal! Over the next few weeks, the Outreach Committee will continue to raise funds for Konbit scholarships. If you still want to donate but didn’t have a chance yet, please send in a check payable to SMM with “CHP” in the memo line. Each scholarship is $350, and donations of any amount are welcome! Questions? Please contact Mark Christie.
Directed by Jeanie Balch, parishioner of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church, CenterStage’s production of Godspell delivers a message of hope, solidarity and community. This production features new music and updated material from the Tony Award winning 2011 Broadway revival, written by Michael Tebelak. The tuneful score, written by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin), takes most of its lyrics from the Episcopal Hymnal, with such memorable songs as “Day by Day,” “All Good Gifts,” “Turn Back, O Man,” “O Bless the Lord, My Soul,” and more.
Our next book is The Women in the Castle by Jessica Shattuck. Pat and Al Jefferson are hosting. 7pm, Friday, August 4. This tells the story of three war widows, and their children, who take refuge in the ruins of a Bavarian castle at the end of World War II. Contact Al or Pat Jefferson.
Bake Communion Bread!
We need some more bread bakers! We need bread for each week in July, August and September. The recipe is simple – making and baking takes about a half hour on Friday evening or early Saturday morning. Deliver the bread to the church before 10:00 am Saturday. It is nice too if you present it at the offertory on Sunday Morning, but not necessary. This is a wonderful expression of service and care for your church family! Find the recipe here! Contact Janet Poley to volunteer.
