Summer's end will be here before long, and we'll resume our fuller schedule of programs on Homecoming Sunday, Sept 7. The Parish Choir and the Boys & Girls Choir both return to sing at their respective services. Schola - Christian formation for children - resumes. The 10 am Adult Forum will provide opportunities for adult learning, growth, and formation.
Worship and outreach go on unabated all summer long here: the Food Cupboard closes for only a couple of weeks and the Soup Bowl takes place every Saturday no matter what. But we will also welcome our new Ministry Residents in September (they're getting settled in already).
And if you have been away a lot during the summer months you may be surprised to find the scaffolding erected at several places around the church exterior, now that the Saving A Treasure project is well under way. Please contact Fr. Mullen for more info about this project.
Classes resume at St. James School in September, and at last we will have all four grades (5-8) in place, as well as a new kitchen (thanks to the help of DiBruno Bros) and a fourth renovated classroom. Your help as a volunteer, supporter, and contributor to the school is always needed. And of course you can join the Rector in running the 2nd annual 5k run on Kelly Drive on Saturday, Sept 6 at 8 am.
