Summer Sunday Schedule - From Sunday, June 4 (the Day of Pentecost), through Sunday, August 6, our service schedule on Sundays will include our ongoing 7:30 am service in the Chapel (Rite One), and a 10:00 am service in the Nave (Rite Two).

The Beatles had a song entitled "Hello, Goodbye" and we are singing and doing that this week at St. Andrew's.

The first is a "goodbye" to Sloan McKellar. While we are very happy that Sloan is moving on to a wonderful position at Millsaps, we are sorry to have to say goodbye to her from St. Andrew's. Sloan stepped in and took over and kept out Catechesis program going  at full speed. Thank you Sloan-we couldn't have made it without you.

We say "hello" to Rachel Misenar. We are happy to welcome Rachel as our new Director of Catechesis and look forward to the talents she brings to our Cathedral family.

And we say "hello" to Katie Bradshaw who just moved in down the hall from me as our Canon for Lifelong Formation and Mission. We welcome Katie as part of our Cathedral family!!

7:30 a.m. | 10:00 a.m.

Some people are asking, "What's a Cursillo Sunday? Are we going to have screens up on the walls and singing crazy songs?" The answer is, "No". We are going to be celebrating Christ's love with hymns and songs we all know--a special time we will all enjoy. Based on the readings for that day, I will share my own experiences with Cursillo. I hope you will make a special effort to celebrate with us this Sunday.

Following our 10:00 Eucharist this Sunday, we will gather in the parish hall to join Charles and Lee Jackson as they celebrate fifty years of marriage with their Cathedral parish family. Please join us for a light lunch as we share this celebration with them.

Community Evensong will be held Sunday June 25, at 5:30 pm in the chancel.  This ecumenical service of simple chant, scripture, prayer and meditation, fashioned after the traditional service of evening prayer, allows us to pause before the start of yet another busy week, to connect with God and neighbor, and to share both in silence and sound our hopes for the week ahead. This lay-led service depends on communal leadership, so please email Sarah Stripp at sarah.l.stripp@gmail.com if you would like to be part of planning and leading Community Evensong.

June 21 | Matthew Guinn & John Grisham! Our own St Andrews parishioner, Matthew Guinn will be speaking at Lemuria with some other well know writers on June 21st. Matt had this to say:

" It's going to be John Grisham, Greg Iles, and me (might as well change my name to The Other Guy) just talking about writing and the book business. Tickets are $32, which I believe includes a copy of Camino Island, with the rest benefitting the MS Book Festival. Here's a link about Grisham's tour, which is intended to highlight the importance of independent bookstores like Lemuria: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/nation-now/2017/04/19/john-grisham-camino-island/100630236/ Peace, Matthew"
