We have set up a snow-closing notification on WLBZ TV channel 2. We will also post on our website, so if you question whether a service or event is taking place at St. Saviour’s, check both places for information, then let anyone know who you think might not have a computer or tv.
Advent Discussion Series: The O Antiphons. This year, on the four Sundays of Advent (November 30, December 7, 14, 21), Tim, Jenny, and Vesta will be leading discussions of the seven ancient titles for the coming Messiah which have been sung as antiphons to the Song of Mary at Evening Prayer in Advent since at least the sixth century. We perhaps know them best as they are paraphrased in Hymn 56, “O come, O Come Emmanuel.” What did it mean for the early Church to call Christ by the name “Wisdom?” What does it mean for us? How about “Root of Jesse” or “Key of David?” Explorations of these questions will be during Forum time (9:00-9:45) at St. John, and after the 10:00 service (11:30-12:15) in the Parish Hall at St. Saviour’s, and will be led by the priest celebrant at each church. No advance reading is required; each exploration can stand alone, but attending all would be an enriching Advent discipline.
GIVING TREE! Once again St. Saviour’s has a giving tree in the Narthex and we are collecting waterproof men’s gloves and white men’s socks for the common cathedral! This is a wonderful program that Rev. Debbie Little Wyman is involved with in Boston. It is part of Ecclesia Ministries, Inc. and is an outdoor congregation, housed and un-housed, sharing God’s love through community, pastoral care, creative expression, and worship on Boston Common. They are non-proselytizing and ecumenical. They welcome and support all people. common cathedral serves as an important community for people experiencing homelessness, and for faith communities who want to be in supportive relationship with un-housed individuals and their friends. common cathedral welcomes everyone to participate fully in our worship and extended hospitality.
