Flyers are available in the parish hall if you would like to help invite other mothers of preschoolers in the community to join us. All women in the parish are welcome to volunteer in building this ministry if you’re available on Friday mornings. We would like to be able to provide volunteer nursery care during the MOPS collective meeting time.
From the MOPS.org website: Here at MOPS, we gather moms. We believe in the simple but revolutionary idea that remarkable things happen when moms come together. That’s why we rally women, in their own neighborhoods, to help them become more brave, kind and honest, one gathering at a time. So, whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom or seventh-time mom, you are welcome here. Whether you are an adoptive mom, young mom, seasoned mom, foster mom, stepmom or any other type of mom, you are welcome.
Knitting Guild meets every Tuesday in the classroom near the kitchen at 2:30 p.m. If you like to knit or want to learn, you’re invited to join the guild.

All parishioners are invited to SOLEMN EVENSONG AT 5 P.M. on Saturday, Sept 29
Hosted by those who attended St. Michael’s Youth Conference
What is Solemn Evensong? “It is sometimes said that Matins and Evensong came from the monks. In a sense this is true, but the offices from which our modern services are derived were used by other priests than those in monasteries, and in a simpler form by pious layfolk in their private devotions.”by W.K. Lowther Clarke. It is worship with prayers and songs offered to God by Christian people every hour in every part of the world. When you come to Evensong, you are participating in a beautiful conversation already in progress — a conversation between God and His people which began long ago and continues eternally. Why celebrate Solemn Evensong? Our youth learn about Evensong at the Conference. Every year after the Conference we like to gather once more on the feast of St. Michael and All Angels to spend time in prayer while participating in music that is especially selected to bring us into deeper understanding of the mysteries of our faith.
