Choir rehearsals have

now resumed

Our choir schedule has now been set for the fall. While we will continue to “warm up” the Trinity choir Sunday mornings before the service (attendance optional except on Sundays an anthem is being sung), the joint rehearsal for both choirs will be held at noon each Sunday at Christ Church. Anyone is welcome to sing in the choir. No experience is necessary.  Any questions? Contact me at brbattey@gmail.com or call 603- 660-3204. I hope to see you there!

Blessing of the animals:

Remembering St.

Francis

The Episcopal Church commemorates St. Francis of Assisi each year on Oct. 4. Francis, born in 1182, was the son of a wealthy cloth merchant when he heard God’s call to live a life of poverty while serving the poor and all of creation. His way of life attracted others and he founded the order known today as the Franciscans. Legends say that Francis could communicate with animals. Stories are told of him preaching to birds and later succeeding in getting them to be silent while a church service was underway. For the last several years we have held a joint Blessing of the Animals on the Sunday closest to the Feast of St. Francis. This year, it will be on Sunday, Oct. 1, at noon, a chance to celebrate the mutual relationship of all God’s creatures. We plan to gather in the rear courtyard of Christ Church near our Pet Memorial Garden, as a way to give our companion animals as much freedom as possible, and to make it accessible to all, not just our two congregations.
