A Most Special Opportunity with Canon Kristin White

What do we believe? And how, then, shall we practice?

One of the great blessings of life in the Episcopal Church is that we think for ourselves. There’s no doctrinal statement that you have to agree to, in order to belong. The challenge of that is that you can be a faithful Episcopalian for your whole life and never have to articulate what faith means for you, and how God might be calling you to live accordingly.

Over the next five months, the Rev. Canon Kristin White will lead a discussion in which we explore our questions of faith – what we believe, what we wonder about, and how we are compelled to act.

These gatherings are open to all people who wish to deepen their faith. If you are considering confirmation, this is for you. If you have already been confirmed but wish to join the discussion, this is for you. If you have come to St. Andrew’s from another religious background and have questions about what it means to be Episcopalian, this is for you. If the upside-down nature of so much that has happened in the world, particularly in these past 18 months, has caused you to ask questions about God and faith, this is for you.

We will meet after Eucharist from 11:30am-12:30pm on: September 12, October 10, November 7, December 5, and January 23. If you would like to take part, please email standrewsgreencastle@gmail.com.

Canon to the Ordinary for Congregational Development and Leadership


As we gather in person for Sunday worship, please remember we still need to be protective of each other as the Delta Variant of the Covid virus continues to spread. The Delta Variant is many times more contagious and believed to be more dangerous, particularly to those who are not yet vaccinated, than earlier strains. Even those who are vaccinated may become infected and transmit the virus. It is projected that this outbreak will peak in late August, early September. To protect our communities until this subsides, the Diocese has suggested that you wear masks indoors regardless of vaccination status and take a congregational singing hiatus. During this time only one cantor and one singer will be allowed, and no choir for awhile. We also ask that you maintain social distancing. Please only sit in pews with prayer books and hymnals. Hopefully, one day soon, we will all be able to lift our voices in song. Many thanks to everyone for your patience.

Prayers and Reflections for this week

We have heard that the daily reflections and scripture readings provided during Lent were appreciated. Those of us writing them have also found it an enriching experience and have decided to continue. The meditations are written by persons from Saint Andrew’s, Gobin UMC and Beach Grove UMC. The daily meditations will be in the newsletter each week and go from Wednesday to Tuesday, except for Sunday. Whether you enjoy these every day, or as the Spirit moves you, may this resource continue to bring you spiritual food for the journey. Blessings!

Non Food Pantry Latest

Saturday, September 25

• Noon to 3:00 p.m.
There will be a drive through distribution coordinated by Kate Berry and sack lunches will be given out. We are very grateful to Martha Rainbolt, Carl Huffman, Karen Hirt Mannon, and Christiane Wisehart who have worked very hard to obtain supplies for the Non-Food Pantry. Kroger is not able to acquire enough products for us so the items are being purchased from a variety of sources. This is much more expensive. Donations to help offset this extra cost will be gratefully accepted!
