WELCOME TO ST. BRENDAN'S

We seek to serve God and support each other through worship and faith in action in an atmosphere of love, friendship, and compassion.

Fall, small faith-sharing groups are forming now!
Explore your faith and deepen your sense of God in everyday life by
joining a small faith-sharing community this fall. Using "Longing for the Holy: Spirituality for Everyday Life" by Ronald
Rolheiser as the common text, groups will meet once a week for 6 weeks (October 1- November 10) to pray, discuss the readings, and share faith and friendship with one another. Each group will have about 6 members and will meet at a mutually convenient time either at a group member’s home or at the church. Sessions typically last 2 hours.
The book is designed for small groups, with reflective readings and discussion questions, and contains 12 chapters. We will cover the first 6 chapters this fall, and plan to hold another 6-week session during Lent (February to March next year) to pray through the second 6 chapters. Sign-up sheets for the fall will be available in the back of the church. We ask that you sign up by September 17th to allow us time to organize groups and order books. Vinski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thursday Evenings at 7pm via Zoom
Modern Episcopalians group will meet on Thursday evenings at 7:00 via zoom. The first meeting is scheduled for
Thursday, September 21. We will be reading and discussing the book entitled Welcome to the Episcopal Church: an
introduction to its history, faith and worship by Christopher L. Webber. To receive a weekly email Zoom invitation, contact John Appeldorn.
Eat at Stack’d to raise money for St. Brendan’s
On Wednesday, September 27, 2023, Stack’d Wexford will give 20% of meal purchases back to St. Brendan’s when patrons alert the restaurant that they would like to support the St. Brendan’s fundraiser.
All you have to do is dine in the restaurant for lunch and/or dinner at Stack’d Wexford on September 27. When you order, present the fundraiser flyer, show a photo of the flyer on your phone, or simply tell your server you are supporting the St. Brendan’s fundraiser.
You get a night off from cooking, and St. Brendan’s earns money to continue funding our operations and ministries.
Get a copy of the flyer here, or look for hard copies in the narthex. Please ask your friends and families to participate, too!
