From the Interim  The Rev. Dr. Gale Davis

Good People,

As we begin our summer schedule, I hope that you will not think its a good excuse to miss church! We will be having one service at 9:00 am, as has been our custom for several years. This means we avoid the summer heat which will find us later in the day…but hopefully none of the joy, spirit and community we have all year round! We will be offering an all-ages Children's Chapel each week in the summer during the 9:00 service.

 We had a visitor last Sunday, an active Episcopalian in another parish who told us that she was so impressed with how friendly and welcoming we are. She loved the liveness of the service and the diversity of our congregation - and she commented that it was great to see so many children!

I want to reiterate my invitation to preach! You are a wise and faithful people and i know many of you have much to say that is illuminating and helpful for others to hear! Please volunteer to preach. I will start asking folks soon if I do not get volunteers!

And we will also be needing musicians to volunteer to lead the congregations in music during the summer. If you are able and willing to do that either on the organ or on the piano, or with guitars or banjos or drums or? you name it! we would be thrilled to have you share your talent with us. We will let you have a hand in choosing the music for the day you choose to lead us. If you would like to give an prelude or postlude some Sunday—that would be so welcomed also!

This welcome of everyone to serve with the gifts and talents they have to offer is something I have come to cherish about St. Paul’s. It was great to have that openness and welcoming spirit  affirmed by a stranger, to have an ”outsider”  see what we see in us. So, I remind you that these buildings, staff and the many ministries we share are here all summer - and we hope you will be too!. 

Blessings,  Gale+

Financial Planning Speaker Series

This series, moderated by Karen Van Voorhis, will take place during coffee hour over three Sundays. This is part of St. Paul's ongoing educational efforts in the area of wellness for its parishioners, and an attempt to answer some of the many specific follow-up questions received after the four-part financial wellness series offered last spring. Topics and guest speakers will include: • January 28: Estate Planning: Essential Documents and Preserving Assets, with Natick resident Tricia D'Agostino (http://www.margolis.com/patricia-c-dagostino) • February 4: Senior Housing and Health Care: What's What? (Navigating Options and Costs), with Joan Harris (https://www.symphonycaremanagement.com/) The presenters are all seasoned experts in their fields, and we are lucky that they have generously volunteered their time for our benefit. Please grab a coffee and a snack at coffee hour on these three Sundays and join us for an invaluable education on these topics. See Karen Van Voorhis if you have any questions.
