Lunch will be provided – please sign up in the narthex, parish hall, or email the office so that we have a head count.

E-recycling at Monroe Elementary:  During Earth Week (April 15-22) we will be helping sustainably recycle/dispose of electronic devices from our community, through a school drop-off program. This is our second year of the drive and the way it works is to drop off any electronics that you would like to get rid of/recycle to Sheila Iverson in the front office – 3615 W. Cassia Street. This is a great way to safely dispose of old electronics, and make sure those valuable metals and minerals get recovered.

Whether you’re into tunes, flavors, or just good times, our live music Thursdays cater to all.

George Augustus Selwyn, Bishop, 1878

Almighty and everlasting God, whose servant George Augustus Selwyn didst lay a firm foundation for the growth of thy church in many nations: Raise up in this and every land evangelists and heralds of thy kingdom, that thy church may proclaim the unsearchable riches of our Lord Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
