CONFIRMATION CLASS – September 30 2012
For those 7th and 8th graders interested in joining the confirmation class, we will meet on Sunday, September 30 at 5:00 p.m. After some considerable thought, and checking in with parents who attended our orientation meeting on the 16th as well as parents of current 8th graders, all agree that evening classes every two or three weeks are an advantage over regular Sunday morning classes. We will start with an informal Holy Eucharist at 5 p.m. (everyone welcome!), followed by a simple supper at 5:45 or so and then class at 6:15, and see how this format goes. Confirmands will be ready for pick up by 7:15. Please speak with Hall Kirkham, Karen Maleri, or Jennifer Daly if you have any questions!
Join us for the many opportunities to find worship and prayer at St Michael’s, through informal Communion at 5 p.m. on alternate Sunday evenings (beginning September 30) and Morning Prayer at 6:30 a.m. every Wednesday, in addition to our regular 8am and 10am Sunday morning and 10am Thursday morning Communion services.
We will offer an opportunity for Morning Prayer at St Michael’s, and all are welcome. Morning Prayer emerges from the monastic tradition of praying intentionally at several times throughout the day, and draws from the “daily office” of scripture readings and prayers. It is contemplative, quiet, and for some a wonderful way to begin a day with spiritual nourishment and a closer connection with God. Our plan at this point is to try a mid-week service, early enough for folks to come worship and still make it to work. Come to the Memorial Chapel at 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday mornings starting on October 3. The service should last until 7 a.m., and you can be on your way! Please speak with Hall Kirkham or Karen Maleri if you have any questions!
