SPECIAL NOTE FOR PENTECOST
During Ordinary Time/ Pentecost, for the Great Thanksgiving we will be using Eucharistic Prayer B in the BCP on page 367. The next time you are in church please move your yellow ribbon to this page.
A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS?
Every week the St. Andrew’s newsletter has a reflection about life and faith. Most are observations about daily life and where we experience God in the midst of the “same old, same old.” We would love to feature your thoughts – – a few paragraphs that will help us all see more clearly how the Holy One touches us in our ordinary lives. Please let Renee or Jen+ know if you are interested.
FREE DAILY DEVOTIONAL
We still have some large print Day by Day daily devotionals in the sanctuary that you are free to take home for your personal devotions–and if we know that people would like copies, we can order the right amount. Many of you may also appreciate the on-line version of Day to Day. Click here.
$50 FOR THE PHILADELPHIA ELEVEN?
On the Feast of St. Mary and St. Martha, July 29, 1974, eleven women were ordained priests in the Episcopal Church–the first females ordained priests in our church.
A film company has been putting together a documentary on the Philadelphia Eleven, and work has been halted for lack of funds. The makers are making an appeal for funding so that the film can be completed. For a gift of $500, the filmmakers will offer a viewing. Our friends at St. John’s, Crawfordsville would like to join with us and St. John’s, Lafayette ideally to get 10 donations of $50 to complete the film and so that our congregations can share a showing of the film.
Please let Renee know if you can donate, and we’ll hope to have a viewing later in the year!
LAY EUCHARISTIC VISITORS
The Diocese is offering training for people to become Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEV). This training licenses you to take the blessed sacrament to those who cannot come to church, including residents of The Waters. It is a wonderful way to be church! Trainings are on June 17 and September 7. Please consider being a LEV! Contact the Rev. Mary Taflinger at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. Register here.
NEW ZOOM LINK
The new link can be found on the St. Andrew’s website at the bottom of the last page. Click on the Zoom icon to join as an attendee.
COMMUNION AT THE WATERS
Once a month Sunday services have resumed at The Waters. The next service will be Sunday, July 9 at 2:00 – 2:45 p.m. If you’d like to help with this ministry in any way, please contact Rev. Jen or Renee. All are welcome to attend!
ON-GOING COVID PROTOCOL
We continue to respond to both our county’s current CDC designation and to the current variant. Masking is optional. Those who serve bread and wine will mask so that anyone who comes to the altar can feel secure. Decisions on COVID policy have moved from the Reconvening Committee to Rev. Jen and the Wardens.
