CHURCH SCHOOL BEGINS ON SEPTEMBER 7TH, followed by the annual Kick Off for the children and their families after the 10:00 am Mass. We are still looking for a 4-5 grade teacher. We ask that you prayerfully consider whether you are being called to teach or assist in Church School or Children’s Chapel. Church School runs from Pre-K through 8th grade. Children who will be 3 years old (and potty trained) by the start of September are welcome. Audrey & Margaret will be set up in the Parish Hall after both services today for you to come by to register your child for the upcoming year. You can also call Audrey Mailes at 417-592-6070, or Margaret Norwood at 917-805-9249 or email at audrey.mailes@gmail.com or margaret@babylionproductions.com to register for or volunteer to teach in this wonderful program. We are excited to serve you this year and would love to have you join us!

JUNIOR CHOIR will start rehearsals on Sunday, September 14th. This is earlier that we have traditionally started, but we will need to rehearse for the Evensong. Most of the Juniors will already know the dismissal hymn from having attended the RSCM day camp in July, but it will be new to some! If you have your sheet music from day camp, bring it. All children 8 years of age and older are welcome and encouraged to join Junior Choir. We rehearse on Sundays for about 45 minutes following the 10 am Mass and we have a lot of fun learning to worship and praise God with our voices. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact the Junior Choir Director Nancy King at 303-758-3955 or by email at nking406871@msn.com.

SAVE THE DATE! On Saturday, September 20th at 5 pm our Parish will be treated to Evensong sung by the Royal School of Churchmusic Choristers under the direction of Mrs. Sarah Tafoya! This talented group of young choristers has taken on a very challenging course in choral church music and we are thrilled to have them. Our own Junior Choir will be joining them for the dismissal hymn. All Sunday School families should plan to attend as the Evensong will be followed by a dinner party to welcome our guests and to kick off the Sunday School and Junior Choir year! All members of the parish are invited to join us. Sign up sheets will be available soon for the dinner.
