Artful Spirit Connection June’s Creative Offering will be on Sunday, June 20 at 4 pm via Zoom. “Writing as a Spiritual Practice,” facilitated by Ardis Mayo, is aimed at both writers and non-writers. There will be several different types of exercises adapted from spiritual teachers including Natalie Goldberg, Rami Shapiro, and Patti Digh. There will be plenty of time for sharing experiences without any emphasis on sharing the writing. It is not about ‘how to write’ but about how to use writing as a 11 means for spiritual growth. You only need a pen and paper. To register for this event contact Paula Baines at

There will be a Regional Celebration of Baptisms, Confirmations, Receptions, and Reaffirmations on Monday, August 16, 2021 with The Right Reverend Thomas Brown celebrating. This is the feast of St. Mary the Virgin, Mother of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Fr. Rick has asked Peggy Day to invite anyone in our congregation who would like to be baptized, confirmed, or received into the Episcopal Church. Reaffirming one’s confirmation vows is also an option. . A couple of these require classes prior to the service. So that we can know who needs what class and how many people would like to take part in each category, please contact Deacon Peggy as soon as possible so we can plan for the classes. Peggy can be reached by email:
