Hyattsville Mayor Candace Hollingsworth will be joining us at the Little Free Library for a Fiesta del Libro/Book Festival on Saturday, September 14th from 10:00-10:30 a.m. Please come dressed as your favorite storybook character! There will be prizes (bookstore gift cards!) presented by the ECW. Later that same day the joint choirs will rehearse from 2:00-4:00 p.m. and then the Bishop will meet with the vestry from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Bishop Mariann Budde will make her formal visit on Saint Matthew/San Mateo day, this year on Sunday, September 15th, for Confirmation along with the raffle and international feast. There will be ONE bilingual service at 11:00 a.m. We are proud that for the first time, Larry Mateso and Andrew Davis will represent us as acolytes leading the procession of fifty people who are being confirmed, being received or who are reaffirming. The 10:00 a.m. congregation will have three long folding tables for our contributions to the feast. Please bring something typical of your home culture and a flag or symbol or picture to decorate the table.
