Awesome Opportunity to Support the Pipe Organ Fund

The recently completed CD of organ music from All Souls Church is now available at the church and at several places around Bangor for $15 each. It will also be on sale at our All Souls Bazaar on Saturday, November 19. The CD features organist Kay Eames playing traditional organ literature (Bach, Franck, Mendelssohn, etc.), with an original piece and a few hymn arrangements that she composed, a couple of flute pieces played by Anne Small, flutist, and a distinctly non-religious piece at the end: Entrance of the Gladiators. Proceeds will benefit the pipe organ fund at the church for a digital upgrade to the console. You can find the CD at Bull Moose Music, 683 Hogan Road, and online at www.bul

When I came here I warned you I said I’m staying. (laughter)…. Nobody quite believed it. But I was found by a search committee of this church, who, in their time, and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and surrounded and undergirded by the prayers of the church set off to find a pastor for that time. And you will have to be the judge of the results of their search; but I have been blessed to have been your pastor these many years. There is a search committee now for this time.
