Good Book Club
Please join us for the Good Book Club. We are going to join other Episcopalians around the United States as we explore together Christ’s redeeming love by reading Paul’s Letter to the Romans each day throughout the season of Epiphany 2019. The Good Book Club offers an opportunity to dive deeply into scripture and create a daily practice of engagement with God’s Word. It’s easy to join the Good Book Club: Just open your Bible and start! We will do this together at St. Monica and St. James. Our Presiding Bishop’s office along with a couple of other organization will support us on our journey with resources. For our ease, Forward Movement has divided Romans into 50 daily readings, beginning on Monday, January 7, and concluding on Shrove Tuesday, March 5. Each day, participants are invited to read, reflect, and pray upon a few verses of Romans. We will gather each Sunday at 9:00a.m. (between the services) to talk about our weekly readings.
The readings can be found here: http://www.goodbookclub.org/readings/

The Rector will hold a New Member Class on Saturday, 9 and 23 March 2019 from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. The class is geared for all who are new to St. Monica and St. James and would like to know more about the Episcopal faith and inquiry in general. However, it is not limited to only those who are new - if you have been here for several years and want to know more your are more than welcome. All are welcomed to attend. All you need to bring is an inquirer’s mind.
Rise and Shine - Every Sunday
Our Children's Church, called Rise and Shine, began on the first Sunday of Advent. Our volunteer leaders gather the children during the Gospel procession and lead them to the parish hall for readings and songs. The children will rejoin Mass just before the Lord's Prayer for communion, dismissal, and our final Hymn. Thanks to all the volunteers who will make Rise and Shine possible.
We are updating our church prayer list for those for whom we pray as a parish community/keep in our personal prayers. If you want to be prayed for please let us know. Also, please send in any names for those family members or friends for whom you would like for us to keep in prayer. We plan to keep this prayer list up to date. Please let us know when we can remove your name or the name of a loved one off the list. If we do not hear from you to continue them on the list, we will take their name off after 30 days. But, please do let us know if you or they need to remain on the list.
