Monterey Deanery Shield small 218x238

Eucharistic Visitor Training on October 1 at All Saints’, Carmel

Monterey Deanery Shield small 218x238Eucharistic Visitor training for the Monterey Deanery will take place at All Saints’ on October 1, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in the church.  Please contact your congregational clergy if you are interested in becoming a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, then register with Ann Wright at

A Lay Eucharistic Visitor is an individual licensed by the diocese to distribute the communion host and wine that has already been blessed by the clergy. Lay Eucharistic Visitors are then assigned to take communion to persons who are unable to attend our regular worship services, such as shut-ins or people recovering from illness in hospitals. The bread and wine they carry act as a symbol of the unity of Christ’s Body, which transcends boundaries of time and space, providing a sense of connection to persons who might otherwise feel isolated.

Priest/Deacon:  I send you forth bearing these gifts for (name of person), that s/he may share with us in this Sacrament of Holy Communion.

People: We who are many are one body, for we all share one bread, one cup.

St. Mary’s-by-the-Sea is proud to present Paddy Keenan in concert with guitarist Richard Mandel on October 6.

Come enjoy a lively afternoon of traditional Irish tunes with the legendary piper of Bothy Band fame!

Tickets are available on line at, or at the door, adults $15.00, kids 12 and under, $8.  For more information, call Jackie at 831-224-3819, or e-mail

Food and libations will be available, with proceeds benefitting St. Mary’s community food pantry.

Celebrating his first album release in over a dozen years, Paddy Keenan makes a long awaited visit to the Monterey Peninsula. As Irish music critic John O’Regan observed, “In Irish music there are legends and then there’s Paddy Keenan.” Bursting on the Irish traditional music scene as the turbo engine propelling The Bothy Band, Keenan is widely regarded as the most accomplished & exciting uilleann piper today. His wild & unfettered ‘open’ style, has led his fellow Bothy Band member, Donal Lunny, to call Paddy ‘the Jimi Hendrix of the pipes.’ A recipient of the prestigious ‘Musician of the Year’ award from TG4, the Irish language TV station, Paddy is equally adept on the low whistle & can let it rip on a rollicking reel, while in the next breath, he is sublimely soulful in a haunting slow air. Performing with acclaimed Bay Area guitarist Richard Mandel, hearing this traditional master in a friendly, intimate setting will be a treat not to be missed.
