You may even find something you regretted donating and want to buy back.  

If you would like to help organize and set up or work the days of the sale, please let me know. It will take many hands to make the Yard Sale a success.  It is also a lot fun!

Annual Meeting, Part Two, June 14, 11:15 a.m.

At an official Parish Meeting on August 25, 2014, we passed two resolutions amending our Bylaws to move our Annual Parish Meeting from January to June, and allow seasonal members voting rights at that meeting, and to allow seasonal Vestry members voting rights on the Vestry. Since any change to the Bylaws requires passage by a majority of those present at two successive Parish Meetings, we took these resolutions up at our regularly scheduled Parish Meeting on January 11, 2015. After hearing reports on ministries and on the budget, we voted on these two resolutions.  The meeting then went into recess and will reconvene on Sunday, June 14, 2015 for Part Two of the Annual Meeting. At this meeting we will conduct elections and all other business. (See attached Nominating Committee Report) 


Westside Food Pantry Recital--Tuesday, June 16th, 7:00 at St John Church.  Music of the Romantic Period for organ, piano and violin. The Sears family from the Boston area perform pieces by American and European composers.  A reception will follow in the undercroft. 

Suggested donation-$15. ALL proceeds go to the Westside Food Pantry.  FMI contact-Susan Buell-669-5482. 


St. Saviour:

Parking Permits: Soon you will see signs on both parking lots indicating that parking is by permit only. Parishioners and groups using our facility will be issued permits (see Muffet or Marsha Lyons). On Sundays, Wild Iris Horse Farms will be bringing visitors in their long carriage for tours of the campus. Please do not park around the circle so that the team can maneuver around the parking lot.



Orthodox Divine Liturgy at St. Saviour’s.  Reverend Father John Pawelchak and the choir of Christ the Saviour Orthodox Mission will be celebrating the Orthodox Divine Liturgy Saturday, June 13 at 10:00 AM. followed by a simple brunch in the Parish Hall. This ancient Eucharistic liturgy, chanted in English, Russian, and Old Church Slavonic, is an outreach of the Orthodox Church in America to meet the spiritual needs of seasonal workers visiting MDI from Eastern Europe.  All are welcome, and we hope that this will be the first of several Orthodox services offered at St. Saviour’s over the summer.


Appreciation for our Affiliate Priest: Jenny Reece will end her time with us as Affiliate Priest at the end of June. To honor and thank her for her service to us, there will be a light luncheon and reception following the 10 am service on Sunday, June 28th.
