INVESTITURE OF THE XI BISHOP OF EASTON THIS SATURDAY

This Saturday, October 15 at 11:00am the Rt. Rev. Santosh Marray will be invested as the eleventh Bishop of Easton in a formal liturgy of music, prayer, and Holy Communion at the Todd Performance Center, Chesapeake College, Wye Mills.  Music begins at 10:30am.  Reception to follow.  All parishioners of St. Peter’s are encouraged to attend along with parishioners from parishes throughout the Diocese of Easton.  Seating is limited so plan to arrive early.

The Presiding Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Michael Curry, will be the celebrant and the Rt. Rev. John McKee Sloan, the Bishop of Alabama, will be the preacher.

Our Children’s Choir, St. Peter’s Key Singers, will be performing in the half hour before the service, and Peter’s Voice has now been invited to participate as well.
Father David will be among the priests, deacons and bishops present, and a number of parishioners will be participating as part of the choir and lay ministers in procession.  Parishioners Laura McCarthy and Ernie Cornbrooks will be presenters in the service.

If you can’t make it up to Chesapeake College for the service, you can see the Investiture streaming live on line, thanks to the Diocese of Alabama – the diocese where Bishop Santosh recently served as an Assistant Bishop.  To view the live streaming on Saturday, go to the diocesan webpage for the link:  www.dioceseofeaston.org.  

Please keep Bishop-elect Santosh Marray in your prayers as he prepares to assume this important office in the life of the Church.

BOARD GAME NIGHT THIS FRIDAY
 
Youth and families and the young at heart are all invited to participate in a new event:  Board Game Night, this Friday, October 14 beginning at 6:30pm on the second floor of the Parish Annex (Sunday School area).  There will be various board games available to play. DINNER WILL ALSO BE SERVED.  So if you don't feel like cooking, come out to BOARD GAME NIGHT, a chance for everyone to fellowship and relax after a long week of school and work.  For more information, contact our Youth Ministries Intern Nivek Johnson at niv.johnson@hotmail.com.
 
ISAIAH ADULT SERIES AND POTLUCK HAS CONCLUDED
 
The Tuesday Evening Potluck and Adult Series on the Book of Isaiah concluded this past Tuesday.  Look for the next Tuesday Evening Series to be held in Lent 2017.
 
STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE CARDS AVAILABLE NEXT WEEK
 
Parishioners should receive a letter and a pledge card in the mail next week as we begin our annual fall stewardship campaign to support St. Peter’s in 2017.  Consider all that God has given to you and how much of a difference your faith makes in your life.  How can you give back to God in joyful thanksgiving?  Your pledge will help St. Peter’s make a difference in so many lives, bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to life in many ways, in worship, service and ministry. 
 
WHAT’S COMING UP ON ALL SAINTS SUNDAY, NOV. 6

On All Saints Sunday, November 6, at the 11am worship service St. Peter’s Choir will be singing John Rutter’s, When the Saints Go Marching In, and, Beautiful River, with Sharon Clark, Soprano, sharing the aria from the Oratorio, Elijah, by Felix Mendelssohn: Then Shall the Righteous Shine Forth.  Guest Musicians Ken Farley, Clarinet, and, Kurt Ludwig, Trombone.

BOYCHOIR MEMBERS IN NEED OF LODGING NOV. 4
 
The Maryland State Boychoir is once again coming to St. Peter’s on Friday, November 4 at 7:30pm to be the choir for our service of Evensong and then to present a small concert after the service.
 
We are in need of volunteers who would be able to provide lodging in their homes Friday night for some of the members of the choir and provide breakfast and a bag lunch for them the next day.  We have heard from previous host families that it was an outstanding experience and privilege to have these talented and courteous young men in their homes.  If you are willing to help or would like more information, please contact Music Ministries Director Brittany Spicer directly at brittanyvspicer@yahoo.com. Thank you for your ministry of hospitality.
 
SAVE THE DATE: ALL PARISH CLEAN-UP NOV. 12

The Property Committee has announced that the all parish Fall Clean Up Day will be Saturday morning, November 12 from 9am to 12noon at St. Peter’s.  All parishioners are needed to help work on some projects and cleaning of our church buildings. Please mark the date and plan to be part of our stewardship of our buildings and grounds.

INQUIRER’S CLASS BEGINS NOV. 1
 
Interested in becoming Episcopalian, or just curious about the church?  Already Episcopalian but want to know more about the faith? Have some questions about worship, or practices, or beliefs, or something else associated with the Episcopal Church?  Sign up and take part in this fall’s Inquiry Class, Tuesday evenings at 7pm in the Parish Hall.  This seven week class looks at worship, the prayer book, church history, beliefs, church organization, practices and more.  The class is informal and can be tailored to topics the group wants to explore. 
It is a class for anyone who has a question about the church, anyone who is interested in being Episcopalian, and those interested in being confirmed or received as adults in the church. 

It is required for any adult wishing to be confirmed or received by the Bishop of Easton when he visits St. Peter’s on January 15, 2017.  There is no charge and anyone is welcomed to attend.  The class will be led by the Rector, the Rev. David Michaud.

Because there are materials that need to be ordered, those
interested in taking the class are asked to register in advance.  Contact the Parish Office, giving your name and contact information and saying you are interested in attending the Inquirer’s Class.  Or email Father David directly at davidmichaud07@gmail.com
