This Sunday 10/10, we encourage parishioners to wear White and join us for celebration!
White Sunday, (in the Samoan languageLotu Tamaiti, literally "Children's Service"), is a national holiday in Samoa falling on the second Sunday of October. Parishioner Tusi Mayer will lead our observance of the holiday during sermon time.
The day is for parents and communities to acknowledge and celebrate childhood by hosting special programs during church services which include scriptural recitations, biblical story reenactments, and creative dance performances.
Animals are our companions on Earth, be they house pets, domesticated livestock or wild creatures. We receive much from them: comfort, protection and wonder, as well as labor, food and clothing.
In celebration of St. Francis Day, Rev. Libby joined the children in HNS classrooms and blessed many (many!) photos and drawings of animals on Thursday, Sept. 30. Rev. Jenn assisted with the blessings in and after church on Sunday, Oct 3.

Fall offerings from the brothers of the Episcopal Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE)
The brothers will host two two small series this fall:
The first from Br. Sean Glenn is titled:
Sufficient Grace: Praying with the Calling of Illness.
The meetings will take place on three Thursdays in October from 7:15pm to 8:15pm at no charge. This is chance to explore together the sometimes unspoken and searching dimensions of the reality that our walk with God is often marked by illness—sometimes chronically and incurably.
In another offering, Br. Luke Ditewigwill lead gatherings on using expressive movements to pray from grief.
Tuesdays 7:15-8:15pm EST on zoom
November 30, December 7, 14
How are you praying amid so much loss? Reflecting on the biblical tradition of lament and attending to the wisdom of our bodies, Br. Luke offers simple, expressive movements and creative actions as ways to pray our grief.
