September 11 will be the LAST SUNDAY at St. Andrew. We will return to the fall schedule of a single 9:00 a.m. service at St. John on September 18.
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:
Video recordings of Fr. Tim’s sermons are now available at www.StAndrewStJohn.blogspot.com – the most recent posted on the home page, and prior Sundays archived under “Sermon videos online” in the archive listing on the left. If you have to miss a Sunday, if you are away for the season, or if you just want to listen again to try to figure out what he was talking about, this is a great way to stay in touch. You can also find the sermons Tim+ preaches at St. Saviour at www.StSaviours.me.
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.
September 11 at 4:00 PM there will be a community gathering of reconciliation at St. Saviour’s to commemorate the fifteenth anniversary of events of September 11, 2001, to recognize and appreciate our local First Responders, and to think about the ways our world has been changed. Folks from College of the Atlantic, the Abbe Museum, The Jesup Library, and the YWCA are expected to participate, offering readings, music, and prayers.
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.
St. Mary & St. Jude:
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?
