SUMMER INTERMEZZOS ARE BACK! The four Sundays of July will see the return of the Summer Intermezzos – short concerts between the Masses on Sunday morning, starting at “9:05ish”. The music for July 5 will have a patriotic theme, while the music for July 12 and July 19 will feature the Five Mystical Songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams. You will experience a change of pace on July 26, as a selection of chorale preludes for organ in the style of gospel, jazz, blues and soul by German composer Johannes Matthias Michel will be played. Invite your friends to come with you to Mass in July. 8:00 folks can stay late and 9:30 folks can come early.

THE SOCIETY OF MARY has a daily intercessory prayer ministry. You do not need to be a guild member to submit a prayer request. There are blue prayer cards in the narthex and at Our Lady of Walsingham Shrine in the chapel. There are five categories: 1)In Thanksgiving 2)For Those Who Are Sick 3) For those on Need, 4) For the Departed, and 5) For the Parish & Community. Ward members offer the prayer requests at the shrine every day for three weeks. This is separate from the parish intercession list and is designed to accommodate prayers that are more specific in nature. You may renew your request after three weeks or submit a new request at any time. The ward encourages our fellow parishioners to take advantage of this prayer ministry.

KING SOOPERS, SAFEWAY AND NATURAL GROCER GIFT CARDS/VOUCHERS are available in the curate’s office following each Sunday Mass. Please make your check payable to Saint Michael & All Angels’ Church, and note on the memo line “Food Vouchers”. When you purchase your gift cards/vouchers please consider buying one to help support Urban Peak – their needs are great!
