This Evening:
COVID Loss...and Hope
A Conversation with the Rector (on Zoom)
Tonight - June 10
7:30 p.m.
Please join the Rector and some of your fellow St. Dunstan's parishioners for an open conversation about what we have lost as a result of this time of pandemic isolation and where we might find hope for the future. The goal is to create a safe space to talk about our experiences honestly without judgement and without trying to problem-solve for one another.
You may join the session using this Zoom link
(Meeting ID: 870 9507 4651).
Please feel free to invite your friends or family members
to join us! All are welcome to this conversation.

Celebration of Holy Eucharist with organ music and (masked) congregational singing
We hope that you will join us, bearing in mind a few important reminders:

  • Those who wish to maintain physical distance from others will be able to do so easily.
  • Communion (bread and wine) will be served in individual cups.
  • This week we will offer Birthday and Anniversary Prayers for those celebrating in the month of June.
  • The service will be broadcast on Facebook Live, as usual.

Soul Sisters on Saturday
The Soul Sisters (St. Dunstan’s women’s discussion group) will meet via Zoom Saturday, June 12, from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. What we’ll talk about is talking - about faith. Why is it so hard? Do we struggle to find the words? Do we fear how others might react? Do we wish we could, or are we just as happy to not? Have there been times when we wanted to share a faith experience, but just couldn’t do it? Or, have there been times when someone else’s sharing about their faith opened up our own hearts?
If you have any questions about the group, please contact Sue Carroll. Everyone is welcome to participate, and you are even welcome to invite your friends. Join the meeting using this link(If you are asked for the meeting ID, it is: 705 712 806)
Morning Prayer, Monday-Friday
Each morning at 10 a.m. we offer Morning Prayer by telephone. All you need to do is call our dedicated "prayer hotline" (508.924.1769) and the Rector (or, in her absence, another leader) will pray with and for you. You can participate as actively or quietly as you prefer.
Please join us!
