Jason & deMarco
On Saturday, September 29, at 7 pm, Two Saints will host a live Jason & deMarco concert. This contemporary Christian music duo (and gay couple) has released seven albums and regularly performs at churches across the country.

Two Saints won a $1500 mission grant from the Diocese of Rochester to underwrite the concert. Several other parishes, organizations, and individuals have also contributed an additional $1250 (so far) to cover transportation, lodging, advertising, and audiovisual costs.

Admission is free. However, a love offering will be taken during the concert. You will also have the opportunity to purchase Jason & deMarco CDs.

Two Saints and St. Stephen’s will be marching together in the Rochester LGBT Pride Parade on Saturday, July 14th. All parishioners are invited to participate in this outreach to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons who may be searching for a welcoming faith community. 

Line up for the parade will begin at 2:30 pm on Brunswick and Argyle streets (between East and Park avenues). Our exact line up location will be announced on July 11th. The parade will start at 3:30 pm. We will march west on Park Avenue, then north on Goodman Street, ending at Villiage Gate Square. Click here for a map. The total distance is 1.5 miles. One or two vehicles will be part of our unit for those who need to ride rather than walk. 

We encourage all members of our parish who are participating in the the parade to wear a Two Saints T-shirt. Parish T-shirts will be available for purchase ($6 per shirt). 

If you plan to participate, please register online at http://2saintspride2012.eventbrite.com/ or contact John Clinton Bradley at johnclint@me.com or 585-313-1059. Registration will ensure that we can contact you and that there are enough T-shirts on hand.
