Weekly e-News September 15

Tonight during our regular worship together at the Rockwell House we will bless our backpacks and other academic 
accoutrements!  DON'T FORGET TO BRING THEM!  In the Gospel reading we'll hear that "He has done everything well; he even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak." And for dinner we'll eat Tacos and have ice cream for dessert.   Three great reasons to see you tonight!

For South 40 residents looking for some company to walk over to the Rockwell House, meet at the clock tower at 6:15 and walk-pool!  

SLU students, let me know if you need a ride and I'll arrange one for you.  

The Feast This year we are starting something new!  Every Wednesday at 6:30pm we will meet at the Rockwell House...

The Feast!


Rockwell This Sunday!

 Welcome to a new school year and another year of Rockwell House!  We begin our worship together as a community this Sunday at 6:30pm.  If you've never prayed with us before, we meet in the chapel behind the Rockwell House to celebrate the Eucharist.  It's casual, open, and relaxing worship.  If you need directions, go here.  

Following the worship service this weekend we will have a little cookout.  We'll provide the burgers, bean burgers, hot dogs, baked beans, chips, etc...and you get to socialize with your fellow Rockwellians.  Every Sunday we prepare the food for you to provide the highest level of spiritual hospitality possible.  

We usually wrap things up by 8:30, but it's fairly common for people to come late or leave early based on schedule conflicts.  


The Fall Semester begins in 3 weeks!

In 3 short weeks the chaos will ensue on campuses all over the country.  Here is St. Louis, the Rockwell House is continuing to get ready and putting together final preparations for the fall.  We'll post the final schedule and start sending out weekly updates starting in 2 weeks.  Be sure to sign up for the email news letter at the bottom of this page, and be sure to check here often for updates.  There are a few minor changes to the weekly schedule, and we are adding some really exciting ministry opportunities for you to get involved.  

Check back soon! 

Is Summer Really Here!?

Rockwell House has slowed down for school year.  Sunday nights are quiet, weekday traffic is lighter, and the weeds are growing as faster than I can cut them!  We've got some furniture rearranging and some other minor updates, but not real major re-mods happening at the house this summer.  

We do have 2 residents living at the house and the tea kettle is always up for a brew, so stop by if you are in the neighborhood.  

Until the Fall!

October is an exciting month at the Rockwell House.  We are all (mostly) settled in to our fall schedules and we are ready to tackle mid-terms and mid-semester papers that await us.  For your convenience, the Rockwell House is always open and here for you to use! The fire pit will be working, the cider will be warm, and the leaves will be falling like snow in a blizzard (if you can clean gutters let us know!).  To celebrate fall in fashion, on October 16th following our normal Sunday worship service time we will have a bon fire in the backyard and have ‘smores for dessert.  We will also be continuing our Friday night outreach  night on October 21 with St. Paul's Carondelet. 
Also in the month of October, if you...
