DONATIONS UPDATE
We have 99.5 % of our supplies and as a parish we hit a Grand Slam! A BIG Thank You to everyone who has contributed, time, money, donated items, who has sown so many items and bought t-shirts. We could not have done this without you, and the Ugandan children, especially the Batwa, and the expecting and new mothers and others there will be SO GRATEFUL to receive these much needed items, thanks to you.

The Rector's Forum

As the title suggests, this is a study of women in the Bible who are exemplars of the faith. Women like Sarah, Ruth, Deborah, Mary and Mary Magdalene. And while these women do stand out, they do not stand alone. The women we will focus on are important, but they stand with other women who figure into the biblical narrative but who, in some cases, are not even named. We will look at them as well. Come join us Sunday mornings at 9:15 in the Blue Room starting this Sunday.
