This will be a bilingual training experience and will prepare you for this important liturgical task. This is a single class with no follow up required other than your participation in distributing the Eucharistic bread or wine. Let Fr. Sam (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mary Alcuin Kelly (email@example.com) know of your interest.
The Sunday Forums series is now on summer break, returning in September. We will continue to offer a time of fellowship with coffee and conversation with the morning's preacher at 9:15am in the auditorium. Please join us when you can!
Summer 10:30 choir begins on June 30
If you enjoy singing in church, why not come out each Sunday at 9:30 beginning on Sunday, June 30 to help lead music with your heart and voice. We will warm up and then practice a simple psalm, the hymns, service music, and an easier anthem or hymn to share in worship. You are welcome to come any weeks you are in church, and the dress code is, of course, casual. If you have questions, please ask Michael or any choir member. Hope to sing with you soon!

This summer everyone is invited to the Family Movie Night program.
Gathering at 6:30pm (movie starts at 7pm) in the Auditorium with popcorn and soft drinks. Feel free to bring snacks to share with the group. The movies will be shown in English with Spanish subtitles.
