St. John:

Community Potluck Dinner: All are invited on Tuesday, January 12th at 6:00 p.m. in the Undercroft. Bring a dish to share. Drinks will be provided. Timbered Lake, an acoustic duo, will perform. The group features a synthesis of spoken word and song composed by poet-singer Crow Suncloud and singer-songwriter Diana Ramsdell Newman. Diana's guitar joins with Crow's indigenous hand drums and other percussive instruments, to accompany inspirited, relevant, soaringly harmonic lyrics informed by respect for the earth and for experiential knowledge, reclamation of stewardship values, and promotion of individual and community healing.


St. Saviour:

We have set up a snow-closing notification on WLBZ TV channel 2. We will also post on our website, so if you question whether a service or event is taking place at St. Saviour’s, check both places for information, then let anyone know who you think might not have a computer or TV.


Church of Our Father:

Wednesdays, 8:00 am: Eucharist followed by a light breakfast


St. Mary & St. Jude:

Prayer Shawl Ministry: Thursdays at 10:00 a.m.
