as a priest in the Episcopal Church. Jason and Kristy
were also married here at St. Mary’s!He

From the Outreach Committee: Lad Lake and St. Rose’s will once again be the recipients of our Advent
Giving Tree, (located in the narthex), gifts as they have been in the past few
years. The first Sunday of Advent is November 29, but because Lad Lake needs
some lead time to organize and wrap the gifts for the residents’ Christmas, the
tree is now ready in order to give you time to shop. There are tags on the tree listing an item on their wish list.
Parishioners are asked to choose one or more tags and purchase the item(s)
listed and bring the gifts (unwrapped) to church by December 13. Lad Lake has approximately
95 students between the ages of 11 and 21, both boys and girls. Let’s help them
to feel that they are not forgotten and try to make their holiday special.
St Mary's Family Sunday School
Family Sunday School started on October 4. A one hour class for kids and their parents. Kids then take some of the prominent roles during the 10:00 mass. First lesson was on the Lord's Prayer. Parents like this format and are able to learn along with their children (and perhaps teach them a bit, too). This is good family time on a Sunday morning. The first Sunday of every month is Family Sunday School. Teachers are parish member Sarah Beneker and Fr. Scott

Table Talk Topics: September 2015 - January 2016
Update - Fr. Scott Leannah presenting a check for over $1300 - profits from our recent Fall Fest. This annual event, on the first Sunday of October, is a way to invite the larger community to St. Mary's, offer a family-friendly festival, and the profits are given to the Dousman Volunteer Fire Department. We do this to thank the fire fighters and EMT's who serve our community. We also do this in honor of past parish member Richard Stephan, a volunteer fire fighter and EMT for over forty five years.
Our first meeting of the fall was September 20th.
Tour of Nashotah House Episcopal Seminary On Saturday, October 10, The Group toured Nashotah House, an Episcopal Seminary located just six miles from St. Mary’s. It has a rich and beautiful history and continues its mission of training priests for the church today. The tour was lead by Seminarian Lawrence McElrath who gave a guided tour of the seminary grounds and buildings. There was time to walk the grounds, explore, and ended with a brief time of prayer.
