NeverTheLess – June 10, 2018




Welcome To All, especially if you are visiting us today. We are delighted to have you here.  If you are visiting, we invite you to fill out a pew card and put it in the plate.


Youth Sunday   As is our tradition, our High School Youth Group lead the worship at 10 am.  Our graduating seniors will deliver the homily; the whole group will bring you along on an exploration of their journey to near-adulthood; and our St. Cecilia Children's Choir will accompany them. 

Parish Picnic - to close out our regular year, we have our annual Summer Parish Picnic, immediately after 10 am worship.  Vestry provides the chicken and lemonade.  There is plenty of food; please stay and enjoy!    


Bluegrass Mass - the Vassar Family Singers conclude their season with us at 5 pm for the Bluegrass Mass.  A little preachin' and a whole bunch of beautiful music.  Bring a friend, all are welcome.     



Nursery Vacation    Loida, and her mother, Maria, who, together, oversee our nursery on Sunday mornings, will be taking a well-deserved vacation.  Please let Margaret know if you can help out with our youngest children on June 17, June 24, and July 1; we’ve got partial coverage for June 24 and July 1, but we really need at least 2 people in our nursery. 


Wanted - Warm Smiles and Hearty Handshakes    Summer is a great time to try on a new role in our Sunday mornings.  And ushering is an easy, yet vitally important, role to the smooth running of Sunday worship.  If you are interested, there is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board at Information Central, or contact Margaret in the office.  Take a week or 2, or a whole month. 



Poverty Simulation    Circles Ashland invites you to participate in an immersive poverty simulation to understand the reality that thousands of Ashland and Hanover County residents face each day, and be better prepared to change the systems that perpetuate poverty in our area.   Sunday, July 15, 4-7 pm; First Baptist Church; Register: 


Helping St. Anne's with CARITAS     St. Anne's will be hosting CARITAS June 9-23.  As we have done in the past, we will help them with our vans for their guests to shower and do laundry.  If you are able to help with driving or co-piloting of an evening, or 3, June 11-14 and/or June 18-21, there is a sign-up sheet on our bulletin board. Or, reach out to Court Warfield (227.3864) who is coordinating the drivers.  


Lunches for Kids    The YMCA is working to help disadvantaged children in our community get lunch during the summer weekdays.  If you can help for a day, or a week, or more, please

contact Janet Taylor, who is spearheading this vital community effort.  



The Work of the People   Sundays at 9 am, in the classroom in Brydon Hall, we bring you an Adult Formation class called The Work of the People.  This is a video curriculum about how we live into our faith in our daily lives.  Today is the final session.


Jane Austen   Bill Harrison is offering a reading group on the novels of Jane Austen and film adaptations of them.  Sponsored by the Hanover Arts and Activities Center, meetings will be Mondays, 7 - 9 pm, June 18 through August 20. Registration is $125 per person. Contact Sara Wright-Holloway at or 798-2728.
