September 14: Church School ResumesThe first church school gathering of the new school year will be this Saturday, at 4 pm.
September 15: Parish Information Session on Mixed Land Use at HTOCAn information session is scheduled for this Sunday, September 15, after Liturgy. The parish council needs your input regarding the use of the land adjacent to the church. The use requires balancing three needs, handicapped parking, general parking and the garden, summarized as follows:
1. A total of 19 parking spaces were eliminated when the city added the bike lane.
2. Reserved handicapped spaces are needed for those requiring access to the elevator.
3. All or part of the garden could potentially be moved to accommodate the need for parking.
The council has considered several options. The current land use and two of the options are posted in AMH for your perusal. The council needs your input in deciding which plan to move forward into the next phase of development and fundraising for a phased implementation. The options, as well as the agenda for the parish information session on September 15, can also be downloaded here.
October 6: Carpenter Nature Center—Save the Date!Our excursion this year to the Carpenter Nature Center will be on Sunday, October 6. Please make plans to spend a lovely fall afternoon enjoying the nature center and walks along the bluffs of the St Croix River. Admission and parking are free.
We will enjoy our regular coffee hour after Divine Liturgy and have desserts and snacks later at the Nature Center. If you would like to contribute a dessert or snack for this annual parish event, there will be a sign-up sheet on the coffee-hour easel in Archangel Michael Hall. Here’s a link to the map showing the walks and where we meet (the Schaffer Gazebo, marked with a G on the map). Please contact Mina Jacobs if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org or 907-306-7092).
