This Sunday, September 9th, 7 p.m.

On the second Sunday of each month at 7 p.m., an all-male choir will lead this beautiful choral service by candlelight.  Compline is the final  prayer service  of the day in the Church's ancient prayer cycle that marks the hours of the day. The service lasts about 20 minutes, and provides a peaceful way to end the weekend in contemplation and beauty.  After the service, all are invited to a local restaurant for food, drink, and discussion.

This service is a wonderful opportunity to invite friends to church who may be unwilling or unable to come on a Sunday morning. Please consider inviting a friend to the first service on September 9th!!

Pastoral Notice of the Death of
Mrs. Loretta Oldham

July 26, 1927 - September 1, 2018

Sunday, September 9, 2018
Visitation 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
Memorial Service 3:00 p.m.

McGilley Memorial Chapel Midtown
20 W. Linwood Blvd
Kansas City, MO

Father of all, we pray to you for Loretta and for all those whom we love, but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May her soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

No te from Fr. Charles: The Oldham family was active at St. Mary's for many years. Loretta's husband Bill died during heart surgery during Fr. Bob Hutcherson's tenure as rector in the early 1980's. He was asked to enter the operating theatre before they disconnected the heart-lung machine in order to administer the last rites of the church. I am grateful to have been able to anoint Loretta the day before she died, and that Fr. Bob will be offering a prayer and a reading at Loretta's memorial service. May she rest in peace and rise in glory!
