Church School classes are for children aged 3 through grade 6 are held from 10-10:40 a.m., with children joining the service at the Offertory to be with their families for Holy Communion.

Can you help? Junior Warden, Alastair Battson, is asking for a short work morning at the church: this Saturday, October 26th, 9-11 a.m. to dig a foundation and set our new arbor in concrete at the Lowell Street entrance to the Memorial Garden. He just needs a few people to help him – please let him know if you are available. Thank you!

ST. JOHN’S COOKBOOK! We are continuing to compile recipes for the new St. John’s cookbook. The categories are appetizers and soups, entrees, desserts, and, of course, drinks. We would love all families to contribute AS MANY RECIPES AS YOU WOULD LIKE! You can submit your recipes at www.saintjohnschurch.com, under the tab “What We Do”, by emailing it to kemckey@gmail.com, or filling out a form in Kate McKey-Dunar’s mailbox. Thank You!

What does it mean to be Anglican? This fall St. John’s will host a Saturday series to explore some of the deeper foundation stones of the Anglican tradition, and seek to understand how they help shape the contentions of our day. Meetings will be held in the Loring Room from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. on November 9, and November 23. All are welcome!

All Saints’ Sunday, November 3rd: On this day, St. John’s will join in the 10:30 a.m. worship service at Parish of the Messiah, 1900 Commonwealth Ave., Auburndale. As we’ve done in the past, St. John’s will remember those who have died during the past year, as well as “all the Saints” who are cherished by each of us. Please give the names of those you wish to have remembered to Paula, either by leaving a note on the desk in the Parish Office, email to stjohnnew@rcn.com, or call 617.964.2591.
