DAY SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
St. David’s Episcopal Day School is proud to announce a scholarship fund specifically for frontline workers and other service providers who are in need of consistent, quality care for their preschool or kindergarten children. While our standard tuition is competitive in terms of affordability as compared with similar quality programs in the Austin area, it is still out of reach for low-wage service workers in particular. Your donation to the scholarship fund will provide a child with access to a school that is accredited through the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and would enhance the diversity of our community while providing an essential service to working families during COVID-19.
Thank you for your generosity to God and St. David's Episcopal Church. Your gifts support our mission-critical ministries.
MAIL TO 301 E. 8th Street, Austin, Texas 78701.
GIVE ONLINE: If you have trouble giving online on Sunday, please give at a later time or consider a recurring donation through your bank. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Text STDAVE to 73256

If you are not already giving, please consider making St. David's your giving priority this year.

THE CATECHESIS OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD: ECCLESIOLA
Level I: Ages 3-6, Level II: Ages 6-9
Ecclesiola referred to "little church." The early Church understood that the home was fertile ground for discipleship, sanctification, and holiness. Catechumens will meet at the virtual prayer table on Zoom to gather for prayer, song, and reflection. Children will be provided with a selection of at-home work to support the time they would spend in the atrium.
After the Sunday online worship service we offer Children’s Chapel with Amanda Wischkaemper, our director for Children’s Ministry. Access on Facebook and at stdave.org/online-worship.

Tuesday
Enjoy a weekly bedtime story, prayers, and goodnight song on Facebook.
