Thursday Morning Bible Study
Every week, Thursday, 10 AM to 11:30 AM
Come and join a group of enthusiastic parishioners eager to know and understand the Word of God. Our Bible Study is open to men and women of all ages - we meet every Thursday morning in the Parish Hall to discuss, reflect and learn from each other as we study God's word. Each week we come away with a deeper understanding of Scripture— an understanding that increases our faith. New members are always welcome - you don’t have to “know anything” before you begin! For further information, contact Ann Port.

"By the Wit of Man:" A History of the Book of Common Prayer
Tuesday Evenings in July, beginning on July 3rd at 5:30 PM
"There was never anything by the wit of man so well devised, or so sure established, which (in the continuance of time) hath not been corrupted..." So wrote Archbishop Thomas Cranmer in his preface to the first Book of Common Prayer in 1549, arguing for the revisions to the church liturgy that kicked off the English Reformation.
For its time, the Prayerbook was a revolutionary text -- a complete collection of the rites of the Christian church in English and available to the average person. Over the centuries it has had an enormous influence on English language and culture, rivaling both Shakespeare and the King James Version of the Bible. This July, our summer reading group will read and discuss Alan Jacob's accessible and informative "The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography," as we seek to learn more about the roots, revisions and underlying theology of that seminal text. You are invited to Join Fr. Dominic on Tuesday evenings in July, beginning on the 3rd at 5:30 PM in the office "Couch Room."
