  • SUNDAY'S APPOINTED MASS READINGS: Acts 8:26-40;  Psalm 22:24-30;  I John 4:7-21;  John 15:1-8; Preaching: the Rector
  • COMPLINE: The final Compline of the season will be sung in the church this Sunday evening, May 3, at 9:00 p.m.  The night office of Compline (psalms and prayers at the completion of the day) lasts about 20 minutes.  It is sung in the quietness of the candlelit church, and serves as a lovely benediction on the Lord’s Day and preparation for the night hours leading into a new workweek.


  • BISHOP'S CALL REGARDING THE NEPAL EARTHQUAKE:  Bishop Provenzano has asked that all Episcopalians in the Diocese of Long Island respond both in prayer and action to the suffering caused by Nepal's earthquake. Amongst the many good relief agencies responding is our own national Episcopal Church's Episcopal Relief and Development Fund. This ERD is already responding to the crisis, and is prepared to receive donations and distribute appropriate aid. Information regarding ERD, and ways to contribute may be found at ERD's website.
  • NEW PARISH DIRECTORY and DATABASE UPDATING: We are preparing a new Parish Directory for 2015-16, and at the same time we are updating our database of parishioner names, addresses, etc.  If you have not received and responded to an email a request for you to double-check your personal information on file in the parish office, please inform the parish office by return e-mail so that we can contact you regarding this important matter.  Thanks.


Looking ahead to Pentecost & Summertime
