MUSIC & MEDITATION


 

Thursdays in Lent at 11 am, beginning March 7 and continuing each Thursday through April 11, join us for a half hour of Music and Meditation. Rich will provide the organ music, and will have handouts featuring one of the readings appointed for the day. We’ll also have tables set up in the Undercroft and a pot of coffee on for anyone who wishes to enjoy a brown bag lunch after the half hour program

 

 

STATIONS OF THE CROSS

 

Join us for Stations of the Cross TONIGHT and every Monday evening at 7 pm in the Church . Stations is an ancient practice in the Church, springing from a time when it was impractical/dangerous to make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to follow the traditional steps of the Via Dolorosa (Jesus’s journey from his arrest through his crucifixion, death, and entombment). In this lovely 30 minute prayer service, participants walk from station to station through the church, window by window, hear a short passage of scripture that pertains to that Station, and pray about its significance in the here and now. For those who have been touched by our Surprised By Hope series, it’s a way of contemplating Christ With Us, Heaven on Earth, “heaven-ing” our lives in the here and now. This prayer service is finished in time for Fr. Tom’s Bible Study at 7:30 in the Library.

 

 

The Needlework Guild

 

The Needlework Guild (aka the Knitwits) have agreed to meet Thursday evenings,, weekly, from 7- 8:30 pm in the Rector’s Office. Some of us are working on caps or scarves for use by mariners (via Seamen’s Church Institute Christmas on the River project) or by homeless people via Connections for the Homeless or Night Ministries. One of us is crocheting sleeping mats for homeless people using plastic grocery bags (aka “plarn”) and a giant crochet hook. Still others of us are working on projects for friends and family and are enjoying the sociability of the Guild.

 

If you’d like to knit caps or scarves, the patterns we are using call for US Size 6 or 7 knitting needles (straight or round), and worsted weight yarn – preferably acrylic or acrylic-wool blend. (Michael’s or JoAnn’s are good resources for inexpensive yarn). Click HERE to download and print the patterns.

 

Whether you are a novice or an expert, come and join us! Trouble-shooting and tutoring are available.


CATHEDRAL SINGERS EVENSONG


Sunday, March 17 at 4 pm, St. David’s will welcome the St. James Cathedral Singers who will offer a service of Solemn Evensong; a reception in the Undercroft will follow.


Evensong is a quintessentially Anglican way of doing Evening Prayer, and features chanted prayers, a choral anthem or two, and hymns. The Cathedral singers are renown for their musical artistry. Their organist, Stephen Buzard, will be their accompanist. Stephen Buzard is the principal musician of the Cathedral, leading, managing, and coordinating the music program. Formerly acting organist and director of music at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue, New York City, Stephen is a graduate of Westminster Choir College and Yale University Institute of Sacred Music. He was named one of the top 20 organists under 30 by The Diapason magazine. In this capacity, Stephen will be playing the St. David’s Buzard organ; and yes, he is of THAT family. You won’t want to miss this magnificent service.
