Harpsichordist Gavin Black is the director of the Princeton (NJ) Early Keyboard Center and has been teaching and performing on organ, harpsichord and clavichord for over 30 years. For his performance at St. John, he’ll assemble his 17th century Italian harpsichord in the sanctuary. (Perhaps the first time a harpsichord has been played at St. John!) Gavin's program of early to mid 17th century harpsichord music includes pieces by Fescobaldi, Storace and Buxtehude.
Friday, August 26, 6:30 p.m.
Pianist Christina Spurling and sopranos, Michele Kruske and Ketti Muschler present an evening of art songs and arias inspired by the sea, featuring works by Faure, Britten, Kurt Weill, Andre Previn, and more. All three are pursuing their Masters in Music at Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge. Christina is a native of Islesford.
Meditation on Thursdays at 4:15 at St. John’s. Please join us for 30 minutes of shared silence and “prayer of the heart,” an ancient meditative practice of the Christian tradition. All are welcome! We meditate sitting on chairs, though if you prefer to sit on the floor, feel free to bring a mat or cushion. If you are new to meditation, have questions or concerns, or would like more information, please contact Mother Kathleen.
St. John and St. Saviour:
Pastoral Care Team: With great joy and thanksgiving, we are pleased to announce the new ministry of a confidential Prayer Chain that is comprised of members from both St. Saviour and St. Andrew & St. John. Unlike our published prayer lists, prayer requests that come into the Prayer Chain remain private to the prayer chain itself, which will pray devotedly for one week unless an updated request is made. If you’d like to know more about this or our Pastoral Care Team, please contact our office administrators or Mother Kathleen.
Summer Organ Series will be held on Fridays in August from 12:15-1:00. The church features a 27-rank Visser-Rowland tracker organ which is used in worship services each week as well as to support community choral and instrumental performances.
The schedule for the 2016 recital series is as follows:
August 12: Douglas Beck
August 19: Ray Cornils
August 26: Julia Morris-Myers
Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Wednesdays at noon in the Chapel, in a simple, non-musical service. We plan to commemorate saints and seasons using the church’s published calendar, as well as focusing on healing for ourselves and for the world.
Church of Our Father:
The “Waste Not, Want Not Thrift Shop” is open on Saturdays from 9:00 to noon and Wednesdays from 3:30-6:00 p.m. Our little Thrift Shop is an important ministry in our community. We welcome donations of good clean clothing for all ages, household bedding and fine linens, decorator pillows (popular), yarn and glassware collectables for the Knick Knack Corner. Please leave donations in the Parish Hall or Thrift Shop.

Prayer Shawl Ministry, Thursdays at 10:00 a.m.
Summer Morning Prayer: Tuesdays, 10:00 am, at St. Mary's by-the-Sea. Join us for a time of quiet, communal prayer in the Anglican tradition. What better way to start your day?
