The Rev. Alanna to preach Sunday
Way way back in March, 2020 the Rev. Alanna Van Antwerpen was covering for the Rector during his sabbatical. The Pandemic hit, and then we went online for worship for a year. We're inviting Alanna back this Sunday to reconnect with the community she served during those months. Currently, she is the Officer for Community Engagement & Missioner for the Digital Mission of the Diocese of New Hampshire.

A Return to the Altar Rails and Offering the Chalice at Communion
Holy Communion: This Sunday we are returning to the practice of the common cup in addition to the bread for Communion. Intinction (dipping the bread/wafer) is not permitted. Please know that Communion in one kind (bread/wafer only) is sufficient to experience the Real Presence of our Risen Lord. We are also returning to distribute Communion from the altar rails, where kneeling is an option.
