September 15: September Garden Work DayFrom Abby Hansen: All are welcome to toil with us in the September garden this Saturday, from 9 am to 12:30 pm. This time of year gives us plenty to do as we start to clear our plants at the end of their life cycle and prep the ground for *winter*. Don't worry though, there are still plenty of flowers to pick and fruits to harvest, and the cool autumn air makes it thrilling to be outdoors. Please RSVP (email@example.com) for a sandwich potluck, at noon including slow-cooked meats and pickled sandwich slaw. (Maybe some chips, too!)
Equipment Needed for Icon InstallationWe would save ourselves some equipment rental costs if anyone in the parish could lend us
- a basic scaffolding unit
- a mortar paddle and the power tool to use it
September 22: Payne Avenue ParadeClear your calendars for our neighborhood parade! On Saturday, September 22, we will again have a Holy Trinity unit in the Payne Avenue parade.

Following the parade is something new, called the "Taste of Payne," from 1 to 6 pm; you can read more about it here and here. Please let Eric Saathoff know if you can make it, he'll send our detailed meet-up time and location as soon as it's known (firstname.lastname@example.org, 651-771-0210).

Church SchoolSunday classes: September 16, 23, 30; October 7.
Attendance at last week's church school was robust and enthusiastic. Thank you, families, for taking time out of your Saturday afternoon to allow your children to come listen, respond, work, play and feast with us!
This week we will sing "Before Thy Cross" and review prostrations before we go to our individual classes. We will be in the post-feast of the Exaltation of the Cross. The festal color is red for those who like to dress in it.
We hope to see you at 9 am on Sunday!
