Reservations for Sunday Services in November

Please read this.

We are now taking Reservations for Sunday Services in November. We can have only 15 people at 9 am and 45 people at 10:30 pm. If you are Scheduled as Lector you and your partner already have a reservation for that day. Carolyn Barnes is coordinating the reservation system. You may choose 2 Sundays a month to attend by contacting Carolyn.

You have 3 options to contact Carolyn:

-email her at cbarnes160@gmail.com

-call or text her at (845) 500-6303

-sign up at church in October for November worship (prior to the beginning of the service) Carolyn will be by the entrance to the worship space.

Please keep track of your reservation times and dates. If you are signed up for a service you can’t attend, please let Carolyn know so she can offer it to someone else.

You can contact Carolyn on Fridays to see if there is a space available on the coming Sunday.

This is NOT a perfect system. It is the best we can do at this time, so I ask you for your patience and cooperation

Hi St. James Church School Families. In fear of not reaching everyone, we are sending this to all families that were part of the church school family last year. Due to several reasons, we are going to adjust and make St. James Church School “Independent” study. We will not have the Tuesday Zoom lessons as we have planned.

So, Jill and I will be mailing out packets to families for the fall for the students to do independently and or with their famlies at their convenience. Kelly Kennedy and Eileen Lake are open to receive emails from students who want to ask questions or share ideas from their lessons. Just to reiterate, student packs are being sent out to famlies 8 to 10 weeks at a time, families may do the lessons independently at their convenience, and once we can all come back to St. James without social distancing rules in place, we will begin meeting on Sunday mornings once again.

Kelly Kennedy’s class of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders-Her Email Address is kellyk1967@gmail.com
Eileen Lake’s class of 6th, 7th, and 8th gradrer-Her Email Address is ekklake@hotmail.com

Finally, Jill and Bryan will scan the teacher editions for parents to reference to assist if they would like. The teachers found this very helpful. This is entirely optional for parents who would like to view. You do not have to access the scanned teacher copies if you don’t want.

Please let me know if you do not wish to recieve the lessons or any additional emails.

Bryan Giudice Email address is b2bud@yahoo.com

The calendar (BCP, pp. 15-33) orders the liturgical year of the Episcopal Church by identifying two cycles of feasts and holy days-one dependent upon the movable date of Easter Day and the other dependent upon the fixed date of Christmas, Dec. 25. Easter Day is the first Sunday after the full moon that falls on or after Mar. 21. The sequence of all Sundays in the church year is based on the date of Easter. Tables and rules for finding the date of Easter Day, and other movable feasts and holy days are provided by the BCP, pp. 880-885. The date of Easter determines the beginning of the season of Lent on Ash Wednesday and the date of Pentecost on the fiftieth day of the Easter season. The Sundays of Advent are always the four Sundays before Christmas Day. The church year begins on the first Sunday of Advent. The calendar also identifies and provides directions concerning the precedence and observance of principal feasts, Sundays, holy days (including Feasts of our Lord, other major feasts, and fasts), Days of Special Devotion, and Days of Optional Observance. The calendar lists dates for celebration of major feasts and lesser feasts by month and date. Appropriate Sunday Letters and Golden Numbers are also provided. (see BCP, pp. 880-881). The calendar also lists the titles of the seasons, Sundays, and major holy days observed in the Episcopal Church throughout the church year, including Advent season, Christmas season, Epiphany season, Lenten season, Holy Week, Easter season, the season after Pentecost, holy days, and National Days.
