A Sunday Surprise

A friend invited me to attend a Sunday afternoon service at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Bolton.  A musical offering was on the schedule and I decided it would be just the thing to do.  Mandy Spivak, an adjunct music professor at Mississippi College, would be performing and I had no clue who she was or what to expect.  Well,  let me tell you I was more than pleasantly surprised!

St. Mary’s Church has been lovingly restored by local residents and the 1870s structure is pristine…

 

 

don’t you love the welcoming red doors…

 

the building sat empty and unused for years and miraculously the interiors and beautiful windows were untouched…

 

 

the parish has only one service each month – the second Sunday at 4:00 pm – put it on your calendar!

The service  may be evening prayer or a eucharist as was the case this past Sunday but there is always a musical offering.  Next month will see the Jubilee Singers performing and I was told it was not to be missed!

stained glass windows are amazing…

 

 

 

Each parishioner that I met was charming.  They offered a lovely repast after the service in the parish hall and the watermelon balls were particularly refreshing on this day!

 

What a jewel right under my nose!  How could I have missed having this on my radar?  Never mind, it is etched there now and trust me I will be back!  Let me know if you want to make the easy trek to Bolton with me on any second Sunday and I’ll be glad to bring you along…
