Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also...Luke 12:34
Beginning Sunday, October 10:
ONE SUNDAY SERVICE
We are grateful that everyone has been so flexible, understanding and accommodating with regard to church service times, locations, and mask requirements. For now, we’ll be having a single service inside the church at 9:30. For now masks are required regardless of vaccination status .
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 7
New Consecration Sunday is based on the biblical philosophy of the need of the giver to give for his or her own spiritual development, rather than on the need of the church to receive. Instead of treating people like members of a social club who should pay dues, we will treat people like followers of Jesus Christ who want to give unselfishly as an act of discipleship. New Consecration Sunday encourages people toward proportionate and systematic giving in response to the question, “What percentage of my income is God calling me to give?”
How will I use the resources God has given me to show my love and gratitude to God?
In this month, in which we are surrounded by so many visual reminders of the beauty of God’s world, I invite you to ponder and pray about how you and I will give back to God for all that God has given us...Fr. Tom
We’ve teamed up with the Church of St. Andrew the Apostle in Rocky Hill to sponsor a concert to benefit Kateri Medical Services. Kateri Medical Services funds and facilitates medical clinics to serve the poorest of the poor in rural and urban areas of Nigeria. They currently help about 20,000 people each year with life-saving medical care, demonstrating the love of Jesus through medical care.
The concert is free and any donations will go directly to pay doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists and lab technicians in our six clinics.
All donations will be matched by St. Andrew’s up to $10,000!

We have no set agendas, but simply engage in a wide-ranging spiritual discussion built on our readings of the daily meditations from Rohr's Center for Action and Contemplation. It is free to sign up for the CAC Daily Meditations. Although Rohr is a Franciscan priest, the meditations often come from other theologians, and even from Episcopalians on occasion!
