SPECIAL SERVICES & EVENTS
Quarter Till Organ Recitals
See Peter Stoltzfus Berton in action on Sundays through Aug. 25. Programs (all the same on a given weekend) are 15-20 minutes and feature Bach and other composers, with live video feed projected onto a screen showing the organist and a close-up view of the organ’s inner workings during the music. This year, featured composers include Louis Vierne and Marcel Dupré, the two great master composers associated with Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, the 12th-century sanctuary extensively damaged by fire this spring. Admission still just a “quarter” (or more), but this year we challenge you to see how many quarters – or paper “notes” – you can bring as we embark on an official restoration campaign for our 1894 Hook & Hastings organ. Recitals are on Sundays at 1:45 p.m., 3:45 p.m., and 5:45 p.m.

Bishop Knisely Service of Reception
Bp. Knisely will be with us for a simple Sung Mass following Evening Prayer at 5:30 on Thursday, July 25, the Feast of St. James the Apostle, for a service of reception. To be a full member of the Episcopal Church, one must be confirmed. But if one has been confirmed already in a church in apostolic succession, such as the Roman Catholic or Orthodox churches, that person must be formally received into the Episcopal Church by the diocesan bishop. We have two candidates for reception from the Roman Catholic Church, and any other candidates for confirmation or reception should make themselves known to Fr. Humphrey no later than July 1.
