Blessing of the Animals

Sunday, October 2th, 4:30 p.m

Join us at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 2, for our annual St. Francis Day observance as we bless all creatures great and small. We will gather in the meditation garden as weather permits or in the church in case of rain. All - even those with fur - are invited to stay for the 5:30 p.m. service!


Evensong Approaches

Sunday, October 9th at 3:30 p.m.

Join us on Sunday, October 9th at 3:30 for the first Evensong of the Fall!  At 3:30, guest organist Jeremy Thompson will present a recital of late Romantic French music, with works by Franck, Gigout, and Vierne.  Then promptly at 4, the Chancel Choir will guide us through Evensong, including music from Stanford, Smith, and Brahms.  The featured anthem is Brahms’ “Geistliches Lied,” believed to be his first choral work (composed at the age of 23).  It is also a masterful study in the art of the double canon, demonstrating Brahms’ strong love of the Baroque.  Take a moment to retreat from the hectic world for an hour, and come “worship in the beauty of holiness!”

Crop Walk

Sunday, October 9, 1 p.m.

The 46th Annual Interfaith CROP Hunger Walk will take place on October 9, beginning at First Presbyterian Church on Park Street at 1 p.m.  The purpose of the 6 mile walk is to increase awareness of the prevalence of hunger in the world and to raise funds for the saving work of Church World Service (CWS), the service agency of the National Council of Churches of which The Episcopal Church is a member.  Through its aid programs CWS helps hungry and starving people worldwide survive, and through its development work helps them become self-reliant.  CWS also provides relief for victims of natural disasters, and aid for refugees from social upheaval and war.  Commodities (e.g., food, medicine, blankets, etc.) are distributed through ecumenical church councils and organizations in more than 80 countries.

Our Charlottesville Community Meals on Wheels and the Emergency Food Network each receive 12.5% of the funds raised by the CROP Walk, and Church World Service receives 75%.

The CROP Walk will be held rain or shine with members of all ages from many area churches participating.

Please visit the CROP Walk display at the St. Paul’s Ministries Fair on Sunday, September 11, and consider signing up as a walker or making a financial contribution to this important work.  For more information consult Wilma Bradbeer (293-2640) or Anne Cressin (979-6324).
