Chapel Organ Dedication
We have been blessed with a gift from the estate of Marti Haymaker specifically for the procurement of a small organ to enhance our Resurrection Chapel. Together with a gift from the estate of Douglas Duncan we signed a contract with Regent Classic Organs of Oxfordshire, England to build a custom digital organ specifically for our chapel. The organ arrived in November of 2022 with the President and colleague from the Regent company to install and voice the instrument. It consists of one keyboard and a removable pedalboard in the style of an enhanced “continuo organ” suitable for the music of the Baroque with enhancements for music of all periods. This versatile instrument is moveable and is currently located in our main sanctuary where we dedicated it this past Sunday. It was used for the first time to accompany the offertory anthem (a Tudor renaissance composition by Thomas Morley) and at the postlude in an organ concerto by Handel.
This Sunday in Great Music
Thanksgiving at our Soup Kitchen
It's so hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is right around the corner! And as many of you know, our Great Food program always puts on a full-on banquet the day after Thanksgiving complete with turkey, sides, pies, and so much more.
The second way you can support us is by making a donation to our Great Food program. This will help offset the cost of this special feast for our friends in need.
St. James Men's Retreat
The Men's Group is excited to announce that their annual retreat will be Friday, November 17th - Saturday, November 18. The retreat will start with an evening of fellowship dinner at Ken Robbins's house. Then, on Saturday morning, we will meet at the Cathedral Center from 9AM - 3PM for a retreat led by Father Jon. New members are always welcome! To register, please contact Ken at Ken.Robbins@raymondjames.com.
Midweek Online Service
Are you looking for a short midweek service? St. James offers an online Morning Prayer service on Wednesday mornings, from 8:30-9.
Morning Prayer is an ancient service, derived from those in monasteries and convents, adapted by the brilliant Reformation liturgist, Archbishop Thomas Cranmer, who drew on Old and New Testament scriptures and prayers to create a service that is both simple and profound. It is especially suitable for our on-line service because it requires no clergy (though we often have clergy participate). We parcel out various readings to members of the on-line “congregation.”
If this sounds appealing and you’d like to try it out, drop a note with your email address to Steve Yeazell (email@example.com) or Lauren Azeltine (firstname.lastname@example.org)., We’d be happy to welcome you.
