Sunday Formation for Youth and Children, weekly. Journey to Adulthood (J2A) youth, ages 13–18, meet in the Youth Suite (basement level, Parish House). Catechesis of the Good Shepherd children, ages 2–12, meet on first floor in the Toddler Atrium and Levels 1–3 Atria (classrooms). 9:30–10:30 a.m. in the Parish House.

Sunday Formation for Adults, December 4, 9:30–10:30 a.m. In the Parish Hall (second floor, Parish House), the Annual Meeting of the Parish will be conducted. All adult offerings are suspended on this day. On December 11, the Parish Hall Forum presents “The Gift of Prayer: Praying the Daily Office” and in the Town Choir Room (basement, Parish House), Contemplative Prayer will be facilitated by the Reverend Dr. Paul Hanneman, Formation Partner, from 9:30 until 10:15 a.m. Hanneman writes, “Contemplation in the Christian tradition has a passive aspect and an active aspect. The first happens to you–maybe in a moment of high joy, or of deep sorrow, maybe in a seemingly everyday moment. Something flashes forth, a moment of oneness; then it recedes. Contemplation becomes active when we assume a certain stance that offers the least resistance to the potential return of the experience of oneness. The new season of Advent is an appropriate time to practice active contemplation as we prepare and wait for the Advent of our Lord.”

Sunday Evenings at St. Peter’s: “Advent Evenings” Spread the word about “Advent Evenings: Holy Eucharist with Music” at 5:00 p.m. on December 4, 11, and 18.

Advent Lessons and Carols, Sunday, December 4: During the 10:45 a.m. service, the St. Peter’s Choir, clergy, and readers present our annual festival of Advent Lessons and Carols. This Episcopal/Anglican liturgy dates back to 1880 in England when Christians gathered to reflect on the gift of creation and humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus. Lessons are interspersed with congregational carols, choral anthems, and music for organ. This service sets the tone for a deeply meaningful holiday season and will include the Holy Eucharist. Afterward, all are invited to the Parish Festive Advent Potluck Luncheon in the Parish Hall. Click here for sign-up to bring a dish and/or help out with this annual parish life event.
