From the Rector

St. Michael's Mission is to seek transformation in God's grace by worshipping God in prayer, song, and study; loving and serving our neighbor in and outside our parish Community; and being good stewards of God's creation.

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

Next up in the 2018–2019 Concert Series is our third exploration of the American Songbook, on Sat 1/19 at 3:00 pm. Sarah and Katie have chosen some art songs and favorite ballods. We will also present the world premiere of my "Nathanial Hawthorne Poems" song-cycle! All are welcome. A suggested donation of $10 will be collected at the door; you may also purchase a subscription to support all five concerts for $50.

My pitch to any singers interested in joining the adult choir continues. Please contact me if you have any questions, or simply come for a rehearsal on a Thursday night. We have fun, and the more the merrier!

St. Michael's staff roster

Mitten Tree
St. Michael's is supporting the Marblehead Food Pantry once again in providing Christmas gifts for children in need. Please visit the Christmas tree in the Parish Hall for instructions and a mitten, or speak with Diane Christian or Eric Fialho for more information.

Christmas Poinsettias and Flower List
Please submit name/s by Mon 12/17. The poinsettias are displayed in the church from Christmas through Epiphany. The list of names appear in the Christmas Eve and Day bulletins. Suggested donation: $20 per listed name. Poinsettias are not included as part of perpetuity remembrances.

Sunday Child Care Person Sought
St. Michael's is seeking capable persons to watch and guide pre-Kindergarten children on Sunday mornings between 9:30 and 11:30 am. Please see Fr. Andrew if interested or if you know of a potential candidate.

Stewardship Pledge Drive
Thank you to all who have already made their pledges. For those who have yet to pledge, please be as generous as you can with your time, talent, and yes, treasure.

Centering Prayer
Open yourself to a deeper relationship with God and one another. Annette Nicolas guides us each Sunday before Evensong in silent, receptive prayer, at 4:00 pm in the Chapter Room. No experience is necessary; just bring an open heart. Contact Annette with questions or more information.
