The St. Paul’s Arts Council will be showcasing original, never been produced short plays at a Short New-Play Festival, Sunday, February 11, 2018.
The Festival will feature two categories of short plays, 2-Minute and 10-Minute Plays. St. Paul’s asks that, due to the 200th
anniversary of its publication, playwrights use Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; or, The Modern
Prometheus as their inspiration.
Those chosen will be performed as a stage reading at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in New Albany, Indiana on Sunday February 11 at 2:30 pm.
Submissions of original plays in either format, will be accepted beginning Friday, September 1, 2017. Submission deadline is Friday, December 15, 2017. The number of plays to be produced will be at The St. Paul’s Arts Council discretion and will depend on the mix of
qualified submissions. Original plays accepted for the Festival will be announced between January 1 and January 15, 2018.

Parishioners at St. Paul’s, New Albany, had a great time as Mary and Joseph traveled from home to home during Advent and everyone had an opportunity to write and share journal reflections about their “visit.”
The Holy Family has also been traveling to a different parishioner’s home each night during Advent at St. Paul’s, New Albany. One parishioner took them shopping at Meijer and says she had trouble keeping them away from the donuts!

Pipe and drum will accompany the clans from the Scottish Society of Louisville as they process into church. Following the church service the parish is hosting a Scottish themed brunch in the Carriage House.
This year the Kirkin coincides with the Feast of St. Margaret of Scotland. Shakespeare made familiar the names of Macbeth, Macduff, Duncan, and Malcolm; but it is not always remembered that Malcolm married and English princess, Margaret, about 1070. Her zeal for the church as well as her founding of schools, hospitals, and orphanages, makes her one of Scotland’s most beloved saints.
St. Paul’s, New Albany, is delighting in the now-cooler late summer weather to continue its Holy Hikes—a time of sharing Eucharist and a Saturday morning hike in a scenic park or hiking trail in the area.
