The Choir of Clare College, Cambridge (UK), conducted by Graham Ross, returns to St. Michael’s for a second concert! This year’s program will be extraordinary, as the choir sings Lenten music by Gibbons, Tallis, Wesley, Howells and others, ending with Gerald Finzi’s “Lo, the full, final sacrifice.” They’ve programed the concert to take advantage of St. Michael’s superb pipe organ. Tickets are $25. Purchase tickets now at: HolyMichaelChoirs.org/concerts/
On Monday, Dec. 17, the Most Rev. Michael Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, visited St. Michael’s, which served as host for a Quail Ridge Books event promoting Bishop Curry’s new book, The Power of Love. Listen, as the Rev. Samuel Gregory Jones asks his longtime friend about his early ministry, Jesus of Nazareth, and about the power of spreading Jesus’ love throughout the world.
On Sunday, Dec. 2, we elected five new members to the Vestry class of 2021. They are: Liz Driscoll, Matt Marchione, Katherine Poole, Logan Price and Melissa Raley. Congrats to them all! And thank you to the Class of 2018: David Bull, Senior Warden John Constance, Junior Warden Anna McLamb, Allen Marshall and Joe Warenda. You have served our parish well.
In January, the new Vestry class will be installed, and Valerie Jackson will be the new senior warden.
John Constance, outgoing senior warden, and Anna McLamb, outgoing junior warden, addressed the congregation on Sunday, Dec. 2, during the Annual Meeting.
Each year, the St. Michael’s Altar Guild decorates the church with white and red poinsettias, given by parishioners in memory of or in thanksgiving for friends and loved ones. After the Christmas season, these beautiful plants are delivered to the sick, the home-bound and bereaved parishioners. Won’t you join us in continuing this tradition? Each tribute is $15. Proceeds go to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund.
Our Young Adult Ministry will meet twice during December. We hope you’ll join us!
