A note from Fr. Mark:
Our re-entry into church continues to go well. I am very grateful for your flexibility and co-operation as we navigate our way back to normality. I am expecting that things will be different again after June 15th, but, for now, we will continue with masks and distancing. Now that the tape on the pews has been removed, there is more room to spread out. Given how much things were blowing about last week, we can be sure that the church is a well-ventilated space!

All Parish Summer Reading Selected for 2021
​Our annual tradition of reading books together as a parish during the summer months continues this year with three books that connect to several of the topics we studied during the program year that will continue in the upcoming year. We will gather at the end of summer to discuss each of our books. All books are available at your local bookstore and/or online – please reach out to Mo. Rebecca for more information. Details and links to purchase are on our Adult Education page HERE (scroll down)
Fr. Boyle is a beloved author and Jesuit priest who provides a powerful example of the way compassion changes lives through his ministry of gang-intervention.
Written by Mo. Rebecca’s former professor and mentor, this book was written after the Rev. Dr. Jerry Sittser lost his mother, daughter, and wife in one fatal car accident. 
Bishop Barbara Harris was the very first woman ordained a Bishop in the Anglican Communion and Episcopal Church. She was an advocate for women’s rights and civil rights who was always grounded in her love for Jesus.

Hold on to your Fork
As we slowly begin to emerge from pandemic and start to face a whole new set of decisions, the Rev’d Mark Hargreaves says “We'd be better off following St. Paul's lead and ensuring that our inner nature is being renewed, day by day. We can choose to invest in the spiritual realm and live our lives from the perspective of eternity.” The best is yet to come!
