Olmsted Salon Presents: Sea Dog Theater "The Office Party"

The Office Party is an absurdist play and comedy by Vaclav Havel about what happens when language loses its meaning to the point of incomprehension. It's a particularly relevant subject in our current state of media and public discourse.

Officials of the Offices for Opening are at war with those from the Offices for Closing. Hugo Pludek, caught in the middle of their power struggle, is entrusted with a special task: to build a new office for 'The Central Commission for Opening and Closing'.

This event is suggested donation of $15.

Devotion Groups resume for Stewardship/Kick Off Season

This sessions will run for 4 weeks: Begins week of Mon, Oct 1. Ends week of Oct 22nd. To find a group that fits your schedule, head here.

“Devotion Groups” at Calvary ~ St. George's are small groups of parishioners who meet together weekly during specific seasons of the church calendar to devote themselves to Jesus and one another through prayer, scripture reading and a brief Bible study.  They are called “Devotion Groups” because they follow one of the Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families described above in the Book of Common Prayer: morning,noon, early evening or “at close of day." The groups meet for just an hour, and follow a guided and time-tested format. You'll enjoy the brief guided study, engage in group prayer and meet new friends from our parish.  The aim is to keep the time commitment small, but the takeaways large.

The Olmsted Salon: The (almost) unforgettable Edwin Booth

The Olmsted Salon: The (almost) unforgettable Edwin Booth

The Olmsted Salon & Sea Dog Theater present a staged reading of the new musical "The (almost) unforgettable Edwin Booth"

Book, Music & Lyrics  by Don Chaffer (Waterdeep) and Gabriel Barre directs (Amazing Grace on Broadway)  

For tickets and more info please visit:  www.seadogtheater.org

"It’s the 1890’s. Edwin Booth, brilliant actor and a true gentleman, is as admired as he is renowned. Famous friends–from President Grover Cleveland to author Mark Twain–have long since set aside Edwin’s P.R. hiccup twenty-five years earlier when his brother, John Wilkes Booth, shot president Lincoln in the head. I guess if you grace the stage with genius and work a room with charm, you can overcome anything. Of course, you do have to get everyone to abide by one critical rule: Don’t. Mention. My. Brother. Enter Rory, the new guy, who naively greets Edwin with, “Aren’t you John Wilkes Booth’s brother?” Edwin’s civility erodes and then, when his beloved daughter tries to calm him, erupts into rage. Once the dust settles, Edwin regrets himself, and longs to apologize, but... He has a stroke.

When long-dead John Wilkes appears and offers a chance to wake up and reconcile with his daughter, Edwin agrees, even if it does involve a bizarre nether-world quest for a crown. Painful memories and difficult questions confront him: How do you reckon with your mistakes? Are you really a good person? And, of course, what do you do when your brother kills everyone’s favorite president?

This anachronistic, irreverent comedic drama gallops through history chasing down a bizarre, crazy, famous family. It’s great fun for you, but all Edwin wants is to wake up and apologize to his daughter."

Choral Evensong Returns

The 5 pm service at Calvary Church is a one hour choral evensong service.  Evensong is a liturgy more than 400 years old and one of Anglicanism's great contributions to Western civilization. Developed by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489-1556), the service combines the Latin offices of Vespers and Compline and the words of this liturgy have been set to music by some of the Church's greatest composers.

Sung psalms, canticles, and hymns are interwoven with readings from the Old and New Testaments followed by a brief homily. The services main purpose is to proclaim the wonderful works of God in human history in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Holy Communion will be offered in the Chapel of the Holy Cross immediately following the service on the first Sunday of the month..

Once the backpack is filled with the necessary supplies, kindly place a label inside of the backpack with the fulfilled grade level and bring to church by September 9. Include a personalized note -  “From your friends at Calvary St. George’s Church, Grade Level ___”

We will include these backpacks at our blessing of the backpacks on September 16, 2018. 

Feel free to take advantage of some of the amazing sales currently taking place at your local StaplesOffice Depot, or Target.

Academy of Sacred Drama: YEAR OF MOSES

Join our Artist's In Residence for a groundbreaking Modern Premiere of Il Nascimento di Mose, by Vincenzo de Grandis (1631—1708)

For tickets and additional info, head here.

In this oratorio, a tyrannical Pharaoh fears the growing power of the Hebrews. After subjecting them to hard labor and ordering that all their male children are strangled at birth, he revises his directive and orders that all male new-borns are to be thrown into the river Nile. Moses is born, and his distraught mother places him in a wicker basket in the river. Pharaoh’s daughter finds him, and Pharaoh permits her to raise him as her own son at court.

Seventeenth-century oratorio combined the tremendously popular music of the opera with stories chosen for the intellectual and spiritual enrichment of its listeners. The Academy of Sacred Drama continues this mission by uniting emotion, intellect, and community in presentations that incorporate great oratorios, contextual lectures, and community receptions.
