From the Rector

St. Michael's Mission is to seek transformation in God's grace by worshipping God in prayer, song, and study; loving and serving our neighbor in and outside our parish Community; and being good stewards of God's creation.

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

Next up in the 2018–2019 Concert Series is our third exploration of the American Songbook, on Sat 1/19 at 3:00 pm. Sarah and Katie have chosen some art songs and favorite ballods. We will also present the world premiere of my "Nathaniel Hawthorne Poems" song-cycle! All are welcome. A suggested donation of $10 will be collected at the door; you may also purchase a subscription to support all five concerts for $50.

My pitch to any singers interested in joining the adult choir continues. Please contact me if you have any questions, or simply come for a rehearsal on a Thursday night. We have fun, and the more the merrier!
