Eblast 11-8-18



URGENT!  Please note the change of time for the Guild of All Souls Annual Requiem this Saturday!  The mass starts at 11:00 a.m., NOT 10:00 a.m., as I’ve been advertising now for several weeks.  My apologies, the mistake is mine.  The Requiem this Saturday, November 10, is at 11:00 a.m.  That’s 11:00 a.m.   And one more thing, the GAS Requiem this Saturday starts at 11:00 a.m.  And did I mention that the GAS Requiem this Saturday starts at 11:00 a.m.What was that you said, Fr. Wallace?  Oh, yes, 11:00 a.m.
Also, please know that the luncheon following the mass (which starts at 11:00 a.m.) is open to everyone.  There is no charge and no reservation necessary. 
I hope everyone is planning to join us both on Saturday for the Guild of All Souls Annual Requiem (what time does it start again?  11:00 a.m.!) and for our Remembrance Day service on Sunday morning, at which we will remember and honor those who gave their lives in service to their countries during times of war.  St. Paul’s lost parishioners in both World War I and World War II.  Their names are listed below, and we will read their names during the Prayers of the People.  We will also end our Remembrance Day service, as is traditional, by singing some of the national anthems of the Allied countries, and, because Remembrance Day in many places has been extended to include those lost of both sides of the conflict, we will also listen as Nathan plays the Anthem of Europe.  There are no words, just the music, which you will recognize as Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” from the last movement of his Symphony No. 9.  There are many, many more Remembrance Services this year than in other years because 2018 is the centennial of the end of World War I, the original Remembrance Day:  11:00 a.m., on the 11th day of the 11th month.  We will ring our bells at 11:00 a.m. and begin mass with two minutes of silence, just as they did 100 years ago.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Wallace


Fr. Wallace’s Bible 101 class is not meeting this Sunday because of the All-parish meeting at Coffee Hour.  We will resume next week.



11:00 a.m., Saturday, November 10

St. Paul’s is honored to host the Guild of All Souls Annual Requiem this year.  We will welcome the professional choir and choir master, David Enlow, from the Church of the Resurrection in Manhattan.  They will offer Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem, Op. 9.  A luncheon in the Parish Hall will follow, to which everyone is invited.  The Guild of All Souls is a devotional prayer guild within the worldwide Anglican Communion which seeks to promote the Church’s teaching regarding the Faithful Departed through intercessory prayer for the dying and the repose of the Souls of the Departed; encouraging Christian customs at burial, especially the offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass; and promoting the two great doctrines of the Christian Creed:  The Communion of Saints and the Resurrection for the Dead. 



11:00 a.m., November 11

Please plan to join us for this special service, a requiem mass in honor of all those who died in wartime.  The original Remembrance Day (sometimes still called Armistice Day) was instituted at the end of World War I, at 11:00 am, on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.
St. Paul’s Members who made the ultimate sacrifice:
World War I:  Andrew Anderson, Harry Richford, William T. Green, and William Flynn Berry
World War II:  Ernest John Derbyshire, Raymond Francis Cameron, Kenneth Anthoun Lynch, Anthony Cotos, and Thomas Francis McGuire.

Rest eternal grant them, O Lord, and let light perpetual shine upon.  May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.


The St. Paul’s choir will be joined This Sunday by members of the Young New Yorkers’ Chorus in order to perform “Remember” by Steven Chatman.  Please give them a proper St. Paul’s welcome.


During Coffee Hour, Sunday, November 11

This All-Parish Meeting, sometime called a Parish Summit, is part of the transition and discernment process for calling a new rector.

The eblast is the most effective way that St. Paul’s communicates to our parish.  If you know of someone who would like to receive the eblast, please direct them to our Website and tell them to use the "Sign Up" link at the bottom of the page.



As you read the Eblast each week, it is a good opportunity to take 30 seconds and offer a prayer for St. Paul’s during its transition and for the members of the Search Committee.  Prayers to that effect will be included each week in the Eblast.
For St. Paul’s:
Almighty and eternal God, so draw our hearts to thee, so guide our minds, so fill our imaginations, so control our wills, that we may be wholly thine, utterly dedicated unto thee; and then use us, we pray thee, as thou wilt, and always to thy glory and the welfare of thy people; through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Amen.
For the Search Committee: 
Almighty God, giver of every good gift:  Look graciously on St. Paul’s, and so guide the minds Keith, Monika, Anne, Michael, Willie, Julie, Cynthia, Ken, and Rob, and all those who shall call a rector for this parish, that they may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for thy people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
