Silent Auction Replaces Books at Village Fair

All good things must come to an end, and we’ve decided to change our contribution to the Village Fair this year (December 3). Instead of our traditional book sale, we’ll be offering a silent auction and expanding our café menu for breakfast and lunch. The Secret Santa Room and the popular baked goods tables will still be in their customary places. We apologize to those of you who will miss the book sale, but hope you’ll be excited to think about what you might contribute to our silent auction!  Questions?  Contact David Bigley or Mary Lou Lawrence.

America’s Original Sin

unnamedYou’re invited to a 5-week community book group as we explore Jim Wallis’ America’s Original Sin. The text unpacks issues of racism, white privilege and racial reconciliation from a faith perspective. Please join us at St. Stephen’s beginning Wednesday nights at 7:30pm. The group will meet October 12th & 19th, November 2nd, 9th, & 16th. 
America’s Original Sin is available at Buttonwood Books in Cohasset.
