The light has started to turn and the Yard is full of people, and we here at ECH are ready for the new academic year! Our services begin this coming Sunday, September 2nd. And in fact, we have two services this Sunday, both at Christ Church Cambridge.
First, at 10:15AM, both Luther (our Chaplain) and Emily (our Kellogg Fellow) will be at Christ Church's usual morning service. Immediately following the service, we will have a small reception in the Parish Library to welcome frosh, returning students, and any parents who may be lingering in Cambridge. Come have a pastry and introduce yourself!
In the evening at 5:30PM we will have our usual Chaplaincy service, followed by a home-cooked meal in the Library. (Are you starting to see a pattern? We at ECH love free food.) Anyone and everyone is welcome! And if you need directions, here's a map.
We'll leave you with the Collect for this coming week--a good prayer for any time, but perhaps especially fit for the beginning of a new year.
Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your Name; increase in us true religion; nourish us with all goodness; and bring forth in us the fruit of good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
