Worship this Sunday

The way that we worship is going to look a little different this Sunday. Rather than using the seasonal service booklets that we’ve been using for the past few weeks, we are going to be using The Book of Common Prayer for our order of worship. Page numbers in your bulletin will refer to the corresponding page number in the Prayer Book. In addition, we will be using the hymnal for all of our service music (the Song of Praise, Santus, and Fraction Anthem). Service music can be found in the front portion of the hymnal.

Quarterly Statements

Quarterly statements for pledging members of the parish will be available this Sunday. Please plan to pick these up before you leave church on Sunday.

Nominations for Vestry and Diocesan Convention

Nominations for Vestry and Delegates to the Diocesan Convention are now open. We will need to select three new Vestry members and three delegates at the Parish Annual Meeting on November 18. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else, please contact Father Eric. Nominations will be accepted until November 11.

Fall Pecan Fundraiser

Flyers and order forms are available for this year’s Pecan Fundraiser. We will be accepting pecan orders until November 1. Pecan orders will be delivered on November 4. Please do your best to make this year’s fundraiser a huge success!

Bishop’s Visit and the Rite of Confirmation

Join us at 10:30 am on Sunday, October 21, as we welcome the Rt. Rev’d John McKee Sloan, the Bishop of Alabama, who will celebrate the Eucharist, preach, and administer the Sacrament of Confirmation. Immediately following our service, we will have a Parish Potluck Lunch downstairs in the Undercroft. It is always a wonderful gift to have Bishop Kee join us at St. Catherine’s, and we are looking forward to having him with us!

All Saints’ Prayer Requests

Our Festival Holy Eucharist for All Saints will be held on Sunday, November 4. During the service, we will say special prayers for the faithful departed. If you have a name that you would like to add to the prayers for All Saints’ Sunday, please let Father Eric know.
