Fr Bruce will offer a 5-session series for adults called “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You” on Wednesdays May 9th-June 13th from 6:30-8:30pm. The series will explore topics such as church history, spirituality, how we read the Bible, engagement with culture and society, and church organization. We will use “Your Faith, Your Life: An Invitation to the Episcopal Church,” (Revised 2017) by Jennifer Gamber as our guide.
Register here for Saint Mary Magdalene and Shepherd of the Hills 2018 VBS program: Taking Root! We will spend the week traveling to Haiti, Madagascar and China to explore what it means to care for all God’s people, everywhere. We will gather June 6th – 8th from 4 pm to 7 pm. Supper will be provided at 530 pm!
VBS is available to children aged 5 years to 5th grade. Our middle school and high school aged youth will work as “camp counselors.” The program will be hosted here at Saint Mary Magdalene.
Topics we will cover are:
Day 1: Recognizing Hunger
Day 2: Living Faithfully & Caring for Our Neighbors
Day 3: Imagine a World Where No One is Hungry & You Are Important Even If You Are Small
Please contact Sue Crowley if you have any questions.
In keeping with the Celtic tradition of honoring the earth as God’s creation, St. Brigit will mark the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, as a celebration of God’s gift of light. The Solstice Service is unique among the Áit Caol services in that all the meditation areas will be outdoors on the church grounds, including one utilizing St. Brigit’s outdoor labyrinth. St. Brigit’s youth group, the Lightsiderz, will be assisting in creating the meditation areas. Older children are welcome at the service. Childcare will be provided for children under age six.

“The Monastery” DVD is now available to be checked out. Filmed by The Learning Channel, “The Monastery” chronicles five women who are guests for a month at The Lady of the Mississippi Abbey and documents the challenges and rewards of their retreat time. It also provides an intimate glimpse of the nuns’ lifestyle and spiritual practices of the Cistercian Order. The documentary provided for a thoughtful and lively discussion for a recent Adult Forum Series offering. For those who were unable to join us, it is now available to whoever is interested. Many thanks to our SMM librarian, Linda White, for getting it ready for checkout! Look for it on the shelf under the mirror.
