May 2016

On May 22, during the 10:30 a.m. service, The Adult Choir will offer a setting by Franz Josef Haydn of the ancient “Te Deum” text, translated on p. 52 of the Book of Common Prayer. Our adult choir has been working hard on this exciting piece, and will be joined for the service by a professional quartet of string players. You do not want to miss this celebration of Trinity Sunday, the last time our Adult Choir will sing until fall this year.

 


 

Bishop Andrew Waldo will be at Our Saviour on Sunday, May 8, at the 10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist to celebrate, preach, and confirm, reaffirm and receive candidates. The loose offering taken that morning will go the Bishop’s Discretionary Fund, so please give generously.
The Bishop will also be holding a Forum to address the Parish and answer questions at 9:30 a.m. in the Parish Hall. Nursery care will be available during the Forum.
A Festive Coffee Hour will follow the service in the Parish Hall in honor of the Confirmands.


 

Dear Friends:
As you know, Ecuador has experienced a horrible earthquake.  We are in touch with Cameron Vivanco and family.  They are fine (thanks be to God!) but many of their friends and coworkers have experienced losses.  Education = Hope will be sending out a special appeal to provide scholarships for children who have been displaced by the earthquake.  In the meantime, Cameron suggests that we support Extreme Response. 

Extreme Response are friends of E=H, and we know they are trustworthy.  Here is the link below to support their efforts.

Please be on the lookout for our new initiative for children affected by the earthquake.

Blessings
Chip Smith, Senior Warden
