Three-parish event hosts Bishop Harris
The Islands three Episcopal parishes will join together this
Sunday, July 17, at 5 pm to host Bishop Barbara Harris as preacher
at a special Evensong celebration. The event will be held at Trinity
Episcopal Chapel across from the Steamship Authority in Oak Bluffs.
The choirs and music directors of St. Andrews Church in Edgartown,
Grace Church in Vineyard Haven, and Trinity Chapel are merging to
provide music for the service. All are welcome to attend.
The tri-parish service is being coordinated by Grace Churchs
Burgess committee, named for the late Bishop John Burgess, which works
to promote understanding among all races. For more information, call
508 693 0332 or visit www.gracechurchvineyardhaven.org.

for its annual Silent Auction to raise funds for the animals at the
shelter. The event, set to take place August 27, has become both a

to make this years event as successful as those in years past.

item or service, call the MSPCA at 508-627-8662.
