Weekly on Thursday Nights
A weekly opportunity to come together as a parish family on Thursday evenings for a beautiful choral evensong service, followed by a delicious dinner, and formation offerings for the whole family. Many find that it is just what they need to re-center themselves in the midst of the busyness of life, get together in Christian community, and grow in faith. Come for the whole time or for whatever parts you can make -- and pray, eat, and grow together in faith.

We are honored and privileged to have parishioner Grace Evenstad share her inspirational story with us. From nurse, wife and mother to successful entrepreneur, she is the personification of the American Dream. From rather humble beginnings in northern Minnesota, Grace, with her husband and life partner, Ken, combined hard work and a strong faith to build the successful company Upsher-Smith Laboratories Inc. a pharmaceutical company specializing in cardiovascular, dermatological and generic drugs.
In 1989, before there was a national market for domestic Pinot Noir, they founded the Domaine Serene Winery in the Dundee Hills of Oregon with a mission to produce world-class Pinot Noir. Following their love for Pinot and Burgundian wines, the Evenstads acquired Château de la Crée in 2015, cementing their position as top global Pinot Noir makers.
Grace Evenstad is a strong supporter of local nonprofits such as Naples Botanical Garden and the Naples Children & Education Foundation. Her steadfast mission is to help others through charitable giving and helping those in need. Grace is truly an inspiration.
Register online here. The cost of the lunch is $25. Check-in opens at 11:40 a.m. with lunch beginning at noon.
