Commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the End of WW1

 
Approximately 20 million people died in the conflict we know as the First World War and an equal number were wounded. When it ended with an armistice, church bells rung out across Europe and America at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. The joy was over what we now know was to be a temporary peace, but peace all the same. That moment gave rise to our American holiday known as Veteran’s Day. In honor of that sacrificial effort, the seventeen members of our congregation who served in that war and are buried in our cemetery, and all peacemaking efforts, we will ring our church bells eleven times at the conclusion of our Sunday service at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the 100th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities of the massive war that ended one hundred years ago. Come join us for a once in a lifetime moment!

St. Mary’s Response to Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

Members of St. Mary’s are invited to attend Shabbat services Friday at 7:30pm, at Temple Beth Elohim , 10 Bethel Rd, Wellesley, MA 02481, to show our support for our local Jewish friends in the face of recent events. Our support means a great deal to them because they know very well that their survival has frequently depended on people like us defending them. Our willingness to join them in person, human to human, and accept the risk of being with them–because they can always be the next victims–matters. If you feel led to join fellow parishioners tonight, please meet them at the synagogue. If you would like more information or directions, please contact Julia Hicks de Peyster (jdepeyster@yahoo.com).

Rector Search: Survey of Parish Members

In order to obtain the broadest input into the search for our new rector we are asking these questions of all parish members. These questions will also be discussed after church on October 14 and 28. Please provide your input to the rector search by taking this survey. Your answers will help the search committee write a parish profile that accurately describes who we are and what we seek in a new rector. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. Your responses can be as long as you like or as short as a single word. The final demographic questions are optional but are to help us understand how priorities vary among different segments of the parish.

You can access the survey here:

St Mary’s Ministry Fair: Sunday October 21st

More people than you might suspect make our Sundays possible by sharing their particular gifts and talents. Have you ever wanted to usher but you’re not sure how to count the plate? Considered coffee hour but live in fear of making the coffee?  Wanted to be an acolyte but are nervous about lighting the candles? Or thought about being one of our readers of scripture?
If so, don’t miss St. Mary’s first Ministry Fair on Sunday October 21st after the 10:00 a.m. service. There will be simultaneous trainings for ushers & greeters, coffee hour hosts, acolytes, Altar Guild members, and lay readers. Pick one and find out how you can get involved in an important support ministry at St. Mary’s. There is something for everyone! It will be up to you how frequently you lend a hand in your particular ministry here and you will never be on your own because we do this together.
