This Week at St. Dunstan's
September 20, 2020
The Sixteenth Sunday
after Pentecost
Today's Service
Dear parishioners and friends of St. Dunstan's,
It was wonderful to see many of you for worship on Zoom this morning! That said, I apologize profusely to anyone who may have tried to tune in unsuccessfully on Facebook Live: Unfortunately, despite my most careful efforts, the livestream defaulted to my personal Facebook page instead of St. Dunstan's. Please know how sorry (and frustrated) I am about this! I have included the link to our YouTube channel, above: simply click on the image, and you will be directed automatically to the recording. The Order of Service for this morning's worship may be accessed here.
Please be sure to take a moment to look over the calendar and other updates that followas there is a lot going on in the parish this week. I hope you will find a way to connect with St. Dunstan's in the days ahead!
I wish you all a peaceful, joy-filled Lord's Day.

Sunday Morning: Worship Outdoors at St. Dunstan's!
On Sunday, September 27, at 10 a.m., we will gather outdoors for our first service of Holy Eucharist since the pandemic forced the closure of our buildings six months ago. Please read the information below, and please be sure to register by Friday to attend the service.
Tomorrow: Everyone Can Sing!
Join me at 7 p.m. TOMORROW, September 21, via Zoom (link) for our first Everyone Can Sing session!
All are welcome, no matter what you might think of your singing voice. 
Together we'll explore the fundamentals of natural singing and how that can help you feel more comfortable singing hymns from behind the mute button on Sundays - or in the shower, or wherever else you feel like making a joyful noise these days!
This session will be short and easy, and a fun, productive way to spend some virtual time together. I'll provide all the necessary materials, so all you'll need is yourself and the link above.

Minister of Music and Organist
