Summer Schedule

summer-schedule

             Our Summer Service schedule begins on Sunday, May 29th with one service at 9AM.  As that is the 5th Sunday in the month, it will be a Morning Prayer service. After that, we’re doing something a little different this year.  Because we get so many visitors and newcomers who try us out in the summer, we want to be as welcoming as possible. To those not raised with our liturgy, it’s a challenging enough task to follow along, without also trying to decipher the language of Rite I. In an effort to be more comfortable to anyone who may be looking for a new church home, we are making Rite II our primary worship service this summer.  Since we also value our members who are most comfortable worshiping using Rite I, however, we’ll be celebrating Rite I on the 3rd Sunday of each month- June 19th, July 17th, and August 21st. We will keep the Summer schedule through Labor Day weekend, and will resume with two services on September 11th.

Haiti Project—MAY Focus

The focus agency for May is the Haiti Project.  Outreach contributions are welcome using your blue pledge envelopes, writing a check to St. Thomas of Canterbury and putting “Outreach” on the memo line, or through your electronic transfer account. The Haiti Project is a partnership between the Milwaukee Episcopal Diocese and St. Marc’s Episcopal Church, School, Clinic and Agricultural program in Jeanette, Haiti.  It is an attempt to put our abilities, wealth, spirituality and time to work for people who are unfortunately living in one of the most chaotic places on earth; and to try to make a long term difference in their lives.   Please keep the people of Jeanette in your prayers.
