On Sunday, July 22, we will have a special worship service that morning for 9:00am – 12:00 noon which will include a “visioning process” for our community. A festive brunch will follow.
For anyone wanting to bring food for the noon meal, the menu is salads and accompanying proteins for adults and macaroni and cheese for children; desserts are welcome. Please label all serving dishes and pick them up near the parking lot entrance. Be sure to bring cold or warm items in containers that will maintain the food temperature.
Please plan to attend – looking forward to seeing you there!
To celebrate Saint Mary Magdalene’s feast day on July 22nd, we will be having a bounce house with a water slide, along with games and art. Please bring a swimsuit, towel and sunscreen. For more information contact Carmel Hill or Margaret Buttery.
Thank you for supporting Outreach and CHP
The next Outreach meeting will be July 9 at 7 pm in the sanctuary. On July 9, we’ll meet to review applications for a special $5,200 grant using the distribution to Outreach from SMM Endowment Funds. Our last grant of Endowment Funds built a community playground at an apartment complex for low-income families in Lafayette. Please come help review applications, if you’d like to be part of this interesting and gratifying process! For more information contact Amy Thornbury.
“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.
