Sept. 24, 10 am
The 17th Sunday after Pentecost
Holy Eucharist led by the Rev. Beth Rauen Sciaino
ST. BERNARD'S AFFILIATES WITH
ST. JOHN ON THE MOUNTAIN
From October 1, service times for both churches will change to:
St. Bernard's Church, Holy Eucharist Rite II with music, 11 am
St. John on the Mountain,
Rite I Holy Eucharist, 7:45 am &
Rite II Holy Eucharist with music, 9:00 am
The Wardens want to thank all who attended last week’s special parish meeting to unanimously approve the MOU and proceed with affiliation with St. John on the Mountain. They appreciate the support and look forward to this next chapter for St. Bernard’s. Last Sunday, St. John’s also unanimously approved the MOU, so they are now planning to proceed with the formal agreement. Currently, the MOU is under review with the bishop (although we don't expect any issues) and once it is approved, it will be signed by all 4 wardens. They are also working on updating Beth's LOA (Letter of agreement) to reflect her new responsibilities.
As mentioned in the meeting, the new service time will start on Sunday 10/1, shifting St. Bernard’s service to 11 am. Beth’s work week will be split between the two parishes, and she will continue to be available via email and cell phone regardless of her location. As always, if there are any questions, please reach out to Beth or either warden, Chris Thomas or Paul Edwards.
