This Sunday: Parish Picnic!
This Sunday we will have a summertime picnic in the Garden following the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Masses. The Advent will provide hot dogs with all the trimmings and drinks of various kinds. We ask members of the Parish to bring hors d'oeuvres, salads, and desserts. Pray for good weather and feel free to dress appropriately!
Two Films by an Advent Parishioner
View of Toledo by El Greco
Holy Toledo! This Sunday afternoon at 3:00 pm, two films by Advent parishioner Sam Audette will be shown at the MIT List Visual Arts Center. The films (Sam's thesis at the University of Chicago) are a contemplation of Spanish history. Spain today - in some places bustling and modern, in others only a reminder of past glory. Spain in the past - a country of three religions and great sophistication. They are entitled: Between the Eagle's heads: Three Portraits of Toledo and The Route of the Eagle . Members and friends of the Advent are invited. Admission is free. The films will be shown in the Bartos Theater, Wiesner Building, 20 Ames Street, Cambridge.

Compline on Sunday Evening

This Sunday, June 10, at 8 PM--join us for the ancient liturgy of Compline, preceded by Lucernarium, an evening service of lamp-lighting. We pray Compline on the second Sunday of every month at 8:00 PM in the nave.
Coming Next Month: Visiting Choir
On Sunday, July 15, we will be pleased to welcome the Choir of Sidney Sussex College, from the University of Cambridge in England . Under the direction of conductor-scholar David Skinner, the Choir is a major focus of college life, and during term time the Choir has a regular commitment in the Chapel to Choral Evensong on Fridays and Sundays and Latin Choral Vespers on Wednesdays.
Email Schedule
As we move into the summer months, this newsletter will go to a reduced schedule: which is to say, we will only send emails when there is news to report or an event to announce. We'll return to weekly publication in September when the program year begins anew. Enjoy your summer, everyone!
This email highlights just a few of the items in this week's announcements. For much more, go to

Sunday's Collect
O God, from whom all good doth come: Grant that by thy inspiration we may think those things that are right, and by thy merciful guiding may perform the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
