Celebrate Happy Hour
with us on Friday, September 23rd starting at 6 p.m. BYOB.

Please welcome Rev. Dr. Doris Rajagopal, Episcopal Missioner to Darby, on Sunday, September 25th at 10 a.m.  She will preach and celebrate Eucharist. Pastor Barbara will be away at her daughter’s college family weekend.  

Just a reminder – we have an 8:30 AM service – perfect for the busy Sunday when attending later isn’t possible. This Sunday, Paul March leads morning prayer in Barbara’s absence.
Through September and October this service is under review by Vestry. Should few wish to continue it, an Advent Bible Study may be offered to serve more parishioners. If you have input, please speak with a Vestry member!  Blessings, Pastor Barbara

Thank you to all who helped make the Darby Mission Community Meal such a wonderful success!  Over 100 people were served, many smiles, conversations, and very happy children.
