St. Andrew's invites the Metro East community to Evensong on Sunday, October 19, at 5 pm, followed by a reception in the parish hall. Evensong is the name for the service of Evening Prayer from the Book of Common Prayer. Together with Morning Prayer (Mattins) and the Holy Eucharist, these services are the principal liturgies of the Anglican/Episcopal tradition since 1549 which was when the Book of Common Prayer was first authorized for the Church of England. The prayers for Both Mattins and Evensong were taken from the monastic offices of prayer of the Medieval English Church. These prayers reach all the way back to the Old Testament.
Adult Bible Study resumes Wednesday, October 15, at 10 am with the study of the Apostle Paul. Father McMichael, who has taught seminarians for several years, will be teaching this class. Parishioners and community members are welcome!
