through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Please keep the O’Brien family in your prayers


This coming Sunday, Steven Patchel will be away in New York to play a Post-Evensong organ recital at St. Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue. Please keep him in your prayers as he travels to and performs in this setting renowned for excellent music. We welcome David Herman as guest organist and choir director at our 10:30 a.m. service.


Next Sunday is Pentecost and we will welcome The Dave Posmontier Jazz Trio to our morning service. Although Dave has played for Jazz Vespers during the past few years, this will be the first time we will have the Trio play at our morning service. The service will include a blend of traditional and jazz instrumental music, as we celebrate the coming of the Spirit.

Don't forget to wear red.
