This Saturday, December 1st – Join us from 6-8 pm in the Parish Hall with Byline Bible writers Lisa Daniels, Richard Dodd, Gail Eisenberg, India Garcia, Alex Miller, Susan Shapiro, Lavanya Sunkara, Darnell McGee Saba Ali, Sybil Sage & Gigi Blanchard. Suggested donation is $10 to benefit Gigi’s nonprofit The Kite, which teaches creative writing to inmates of Riker’s Island and homeless youth at Safe Horizons.

We will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis — the saint who preached to the birds and called a wolf his brother — with the blessing of the animals following the 11 am service this Sunday, October 1. The blessing will be around 12:30 pm, giving those who live nearby a chance to go and get their animals; however, you are also welcome to bring well-behaved pets to church that day. Tell your friends!
