A Note from Laura+

Dear Friends,
I am 10 days in, and I am SO happy to be here!
I honestly have no intention of making sweeping changes to St. Andrew’s and how you’ve been accustomed to doing things right away; however, as I mentioned on Sunday, we are going to be partaking of “communion in one kind” for a while.  I so appreciate the impulse behind using the small cups for communion—we all want to feel thoroughly “fed” at Eucharist—but sacramentally, the practice isn’t in line with our theology. 
In some denominations, the bread and the wine are merely symbolic of Christ’s body and blood; however, we believe in the “real presence” of Christ in the consecrated elements.  For this reason, we have a, perhaps, more care-filled approach to the sacrament of communion and how it is administered.  Our Eucharistic prayers all speak of Jesus taking “the cup”, blessing it, and sharing it with those gathered.  Even though COVID has forced churches everywhere to come up with creative ways of sharing communion, we are still called to treat the elements with the care and attention required by our understanding of what God is doing in the epiclesis when we ask that the bread and wine may be, for us, the body and blood God’s son.
I am hopeful that the incidents of infection will steadily decrease in Clallam, and that we will SOON be back to the common cup for communion.  It is as meaningful for me as it is for many of you. 
Again, please speak to me directly if you have any questions, concerns.
In gratitude,


Centering Prayer

We meet in the sanctuary on Tuesdays at 4:00 for two Centering Prayer sessions with a contemplative walk in between. As summer schedules may be more flexible please contact Pam at if you are not a regular attendee and would like to join us, or if you would like more information. You may also pray "with" us by joining our meditation from wherever you find yourself at the time.

This Wednesday we celebrate the life and contributions of St. Basil of Caesarea.  St. Basil was born in 329 in Caesarea, the capital of Cappadocia.
Fun Fact:   It is remarkable to note that from the ten siblings in St. Basil’s family, five children became saints: St. Basil, who became the Archbishop of Caesarea; St. Gregory, Bishop of Nyssa; St. Peter, Bishop of Sebaste, St. Naucratius, and St. Macrina, as well as his grandmother, St. Macrina and his mother, St. Emellia.

A Season of Prayer for Revival

All Episcopalians are invited to join together for a season of prayer for the Church. In this dedicated season, we pray for The Episcopal Church, who by God's grace is becoming a new and re-formed church, to be the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, a church that looks, acts, and loves like Jesus and who follows his way of love.
Tuesday, June 14
Everliving God, whose will it is that all should come to you through your Son Jesus Christ: Inspire our witness to him, that all may know the power of his forgiveness and the hope of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
