St. Michael and All Angels 2019

Today, on the Sunday of Michael and all Angels, we prayed for police officers in our towns. Michael is the patron saint of police officers. Corinne helped some of our faith formation students make a thank-you banner, with a drawing of St. Michael in the middle, for the police officers in Wayland. One of the officers who received the banner, and the food we brought, showed us the St. Michael medallion he wears around his neck. It was a gift from his father, a police officer in Connecticut. Thank you to our talented, creative students, to Corinne, and to Carrie and Chris, for their help and support.

Goats at Peace!

Ruth Maxant is sharing her goats with us. The goats are clearing the underbrush around the edges of the property! This is an experiment in underbrush and invasive plant clearing, and an exercise in the care and appreciation of animals.

Tim Smith removed the remaining parts and pieces of our organ this week. Our new organ is being assembled in Portageville, New York. Tim and his crew will return in early August to begin on-site assembly of our new organ.

The organ committee met Monday to talk about learning opportunities, recitals and dedicatory events to mark the installation of our new organ. It will be a fall of celebration of and for our community of faith.
