Sunday morning September 28 at the 9 a.m. service, the congregation and members of the community are invited to bring their pets for a Blessing in the St. Francis Day service. This shortened Morning Prayer service (in the church) will also feature the young singers of the Grace Church School Choirs (ages 7-18, Anne Matlack, director), the teen boys (Gargoyles) and girls (Daughters of Zion) and the Chapel Choir (ages 3-6, Caitlyn Roper, director), in music by Held, Kemp, and “The Woodpecker’s Warning” by Uno Naisso. A reception with treats for both people and pets follows!

Later that afternoon, the Grace Church School Choirs, 35 choristers ages (7-17) will combine with soprano and alto members of the Adult Choir preparing for their Winchester Cathedral residency next summer, for a treble Evensong for the Eve of St.Michael and All Angels at 3:30 p.m.  The short candlelight service will include music by Bairstow, Archer, Roihl and Callahan. A traditional English tea of scones, jam, clotted cream, and sherry will be available afterwards for $10 to benefit the Winchester Scholarship fund.

Directing the choirs for both services will be Dr. Anne Matlack of Madison, who is also Artistic Director of Harmonium Choral Society. Grace Church is at 4 Madison Ave. at Kings Rd. Madison NJ 07940. For more information about these services or the choir program call 973-377-0106 x17.
