CORO CICONIA AT GOOD SHEPHERD, MAY 24, 2015, 7:00 p.m. in the Church. Asher Davison directs Coro Ciconia in a performance of Machaut’s Messe and Other Glories: Stylistic Threads of Medieval Sacred Music. Join us for a lyrical and energetic voyage back from early Renaissance polyphony of Josquin and Brumel to the striking earliest known setting of the complete Ordinary of the Mass, the “Nostre Dame” of Guillaume Machaut (c. 1300–1377). Along the way, encounter the Alma Redemptoris Mater settings of Ockeghem and Dufay, an ecstatic work by the influential de Vitry, and Mass movements by the underappreciated Zacara and Ciconia. A suggested donation of $20.00 ($10.00 reduced) will be appreciated. For more information call 818-331-7504.
MMMMMMMM……PIE! THE ANNUAL PIE SUPPER RETURNS TO GOOD SHEPHERD!
COME TO THE PIE SUPPER AND AUCTION! But first. . . MAKE A PIE! Our long tradition here at Good Shepherd is to make the best pie you can possibly come up with, and then decorate the pie box—be creative! Some people just write the recipe, some draw the ingredients—whatever!
THEN. . .Be there: Sunday June 14, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. in the parish hall. Bring your check book, several friends, your family, and a big appetite! Our star auctioneer, Deacon Ellen Ekstrom, will cause you to spend all of your money on pie, as well you should. We’ve got people coming from out of town for this event, so fire up those ovens and get baking!!!
WEDNESDAY NOON PRAYER AND LAYING ON OF HANDS continues during Este’s sabbatical. Tom Slocumb and The Rev. Teddy Knight will officiate. The service begins at noon in the church and uses the noon prayer service from the New Zealand Prayer Book. Meditation and laying on of hands for healing are also offered.
BRINGING THE EUCHARIST TO OUR NEIGHBORS. Join us as we bring the Eucharist to Strawberry Creek Lodge at 2:00 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month. The Rev. Teddy Knight, Tom Slocumb and The Rev. Susan Bergmans will officiate at an ecumenical service based on the BCP “Communion Under Special Circumstances.” Bread and wine will be consecrated at our table at the 11:00 a.m. service, and the ministers will be commissioned to bring the sacraments. The Strawberry Creek Lodge is located at 1320 Addison near Acton in Berkeley.
