Dear Beloved of St. Paul’s,
Due to the ongoing recovery work of the gas leak, the campus of St. Paul’s is closed for the weekend. However, St. James’ in Groveland has graciously offered to host to have St. Paul’s join them for worship and fellowship beginning at 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning, in which I will be concelebrating the Eucharist with Rev. Kit. During the service there will be a blessing of the backpacks and briefcases which we are invited to take part in as well. We will still have our blessing of the backpacks on the first Sunday of October during our family service. http://saintjamesgroveland.org/wp/directions/
If you are unable to attend during this time, Trinity in Haverhill service begins at 10:00 a.m. and they have offered for St. Paul’s folks to join them as well. https://www.trinityhaverhill.org/directions.html
Christ Church in Andover has already been cleared to return to there campus and will be having services at 10:00 a.m. as well. http://www.christchurchandover.org/about_us
The children, dogs, and I have not been cleared to go back to the rectory yet and are still staying in Reading. I know that there are still other St. Paul’s folks who have not returned to their homes as well. A special thanks to those who have offered to open their homes during this time of uncertainty.
God bless you all and I hope to see many of you in Groveland (or Haverhill or Andover) tomorrow morning!
With the love of Christ,
