Theology by the Glass – Monday July 24, 7:30pm at Cafe 22, located at 336 Broadway at Hargrave. A discussion of  an article published on cincinnati.com, in which Michael Vanderburgh discusses his process of moving from being a boy abused by a priest to becoming the Director of Stewardship for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

A Back Porch Liturgy – Thursday August 10, 7:30pm – In what has become an annual summer event, Nancy Constantine is again hosting a back porch version of a LivingRoom Liturgy. A simple communion, followed by the sharing of some food, drink, and conversation, all in the comfort of Nancy’s cottage-like back porch. A sign-up sheet will be posted at the church beginning this coming Sunday. If you won’t be in church over the next week or two but would still like to sign up, you can do so by replying to this email.

Camperships for the Annual Day Camp – Consider making a donation to help a child from a newcomer family to attend our August day camp. A full campership is $109, but even a smaller donation helps. You can do this by marking “campership” on your offering envelope or cheque memo line.

Prayer Requests and Thanksgivings can be placed in the box located on the sound system cabinet at the back of the church. A group of dedicated pray-ers will receive these via email on Monday, and will hold them in prayer over the week. You can also email requests to info@stbenedictstable.ca
