Parish News

Spring has sprung. The Daffodils are in full bloom in our churchyard. The humming birds have yet to arrive at our backyard feeder, but they will come. It is a glorious season in which to experience God’s Creation. We will have a busy schedule of services as we move from Eastertide to Trinitytide at the end of May. Please join us to worship Our Lord using the beautiful liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer.

On Sunday, April 24th, we celebrated the 70th birthday of long-time church member, Aare Ilves. After the morning service, we gathered in the parish hall with Aare’s family and friends to have a little party and to wish him well for the future. Our “Resurrection Party” on Saturday, April 9th, was as much fun for the adults and for the children. We are very grateful to the Beck family, Jens, Jane, and Ellen, for leading us in songs, games, stories, and prayers. Everyone went home with a small cross that they folded from palm fond's used on Palm Sunday. And thanks to Dee Blanchard and Bonnie Turner; the snacks were “Yummy” as advertised.
We look forward to working with the Becks again on our Summer Vacation Bible School, “Summer Thunder,” on August 8-12th. Mark your calendar for your children, grandchildren and their friends, K-5.

Finally, our Sunday services at the Fort at No. 4 will start on May 22nd at a new time-- 12:30 p.m. Bring your visiting relatives and friends to pay a Sunday visit to one of Charlestown’s treasures and worship as some of our forefathers might have done during the first half of the 18th century.  

Last Sunday of each month:
Monthly Food In-Gathering for the benefit of the Fall Mountain Food Shelf

The Diocesan Shield


The Shield of the Diocese of the Northeast of the Anglican Church in America consists of the red Cross of St. George on the white shield, calling to mind the Anglican heritage of the Diocese. In the left quadrant is an Evergreen Tree, sturdy and resilient, even amidst the harshness of winter. A Pastoral Staff intersects the Cross of St. George, slightly bent, the Staff is in movement telling of the continuous growth of the Diocese of the Northeast. Crowning the shield is the Pontifical Mitre, jeweled and ornamented, as a sign of joy. The color of the Mitre is predominantly blue, symbolic of contemplation and wisdom, and in honor of St. Mary.
