Community Outreach

OUR NEXT GENERATION—SEPTEMBER Focus

Hope House offers hope to women (and their children) who

have been abandoned by their spouses.  Hope House first

provides accommodations and meals (communal, everyone

helps) for immediate needs.  Followed by job and life skills training, and clothing.  Hope House is always in need of the

sort of clothing worn for job interviews and office settings.

And eventually help the women in finding a place to live;

whatever is needed to get their clients back into the

mainstream.  The women at Hope House face daunting

problems most of us can’t imagine.  Please be generous in

every way possible.

FORUM ON SUNDAY 9/25/16!!

Altar Guild Adventure 2017 – Open to All

The date is set for our Washington D.C. Altar Guild adventure: September 18 – 22, 2017.  Please put this on your calendars now.  A definite agenda to send out should be ready on or about September 1.  It will include all of the sites that we will visit, inclusions, prices and details of how to register for the trip.  All registrations and payments will be handled on-line with American Christian Tours.  You will be able to register, with a 10% down payment, as soon as you get this information. Registration will remain open until Nov. 1 or until we reach our cut off of 50 people.

Once the information on the cost and itinerary is available, if you wish to register for this Altar Guild Adventure trip but do not have access to the internet, see Veronica Heaney after a Sunday service.

 Ten years ago we borrowed money from the Diocese to remodel the rectory.  We are happy to report that this loan exists no more — it has been “paid in full”.
