Sundays at St. Paul’s This Summer

As summer approaches we anticipate a break in our routines.  We’ll do this at St. Paul’s by devoting a few Sundays this summer to worship outside our usual pattern.  We begin on June 15 with worship from the New Zealand Prayer Book.  On July 13, we will use a form from another of the Churches in the Anglican Communion.  On August 16, we will move our worship to Saturday and our location to Eastford as we use an informal form of liturgy at the Parish picnic.  On Sunday, August 17, worship at St. Paul’s will follow Rite 1 using “traditional” language.  I’m also looking forward to worship in our Garden space, children’s sermon Sundays and a few other variations.  Watch the weekly e-mail and bulletins as the summer progresses.

Visits, Garden Blessings and Walks

The summer provides a somewhat more relaxed season for the Vicar.  I’d welcome an invitation to visit your home just to sit and chat.  Or, as in summers past, there is the opportunity for a blessing of your garden.  Or, Wilson (my Lab) and I walk in the woods most days.  We’d love to have you (and your dog if you have one) join us.  Let’s take advantage of the summer weather to make time for conversation.

Parish Picnic Saturday, August 16

Once again this year we’ll return to Roger and Bonnie’s beautiful house on the lake in Eastford.  Yes, it’s a bit of a drive—about ½ hour from St. Paul’s—but absolutely beautiful when you arrive.  Come at 3:00 to swim or just relax and chat.  Eucharist will be at 4:30 followed by supper.  Directions and signup sheets will appear in the Parish Hall as the date approaches.  In case of rain, we will postpone until 11:00 on Sunday 8/17.

New Day and Time for Bible Study and Contemplative Eucharist

Bible Study will be held most Tuesdays this summer at 1:00 pm.  Ours is a lively and thought provoking discussion, and all are welcome.  No prior experience required. One week a month it will be preceded by the Contemplative Eucharist at 12:15, which will take place in the garden, weather permitting.  Please join us for one or both.
