Come Back to Red Hook Farms

Grace Church is returning to Red Hook Farms on our designated second Saturday of the month, April 8, 10 am–1 pm, and we need you! This second Saturday commitment will continue throughout the farming season and the dates are May 13, June 10, July 8, August 12, September 9, October 14, and November 11, 2023.


Our relationship with Red Hook Farms aligns perfectly with Grace’s Core Values! By contributing your time and talent, you serve with compassion in an underserved community.  In addition, by supporting a sustainable urban agricultural enterprise that financially benefits the local community, you are working for social justice to address food insecurity by improving access to healthy and affordable food. 


On April 8, we will meet at the Columbia Street Farm, 560 Columbia Street. Coincidentally, that is also the same date of a Farm Volunteer Kick-off and Ribbon Cutting to celebrate the water installation and beginning of the farm season. Click here to register. For questions, email Theresa Seabaugh, Hope to see you at the farm!

Education for Ministry Retreat

The Education for Ministry (EFM) group enjoyed their first retreat since the pandemic at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY, March 3-5.  Brother Ephraim lead us in four sessions on Intimacy in Prayer and Crafting a Rule of Life. Other highlights were worship in the chapel, quiet time for rest and study, fresh snowfall along the Hudson River, and delicious meals.  

The fellowship group for spiritual development, prayer, study, and reflection meets weekly from September through June on Wednesday evenings. We invite inquiries about the new class in September, which is open to area parishes. Speak with Kim Lovejoy, Co-Mentor (

Parish Prayer Concerns & Thanksgivings

That we may work the works of God while it is day, bringing God’s light and hope to the world. That our Lenten observances may wake us from the darkness of sleep to live as children of light, doing what is pleasing to the Lord and bringing forth all that is good and right and true. That God will grant Joe, our president; Kathy, our governor; Eric, our mayor; and all national and local public officials in this country the strength and discernment to tackle the hard challenges of today’s world; and may they act with charity and true concern for the well-being of those they are meant to serve. That leaders and decision makers throughout the world may put aside hostility and aggression, and strive instead to lead their people out of the darkness of warfare into peace; and may God shine the light of his countenance on all who suffer brutality, loss and famine because of war. That God will free all who are bound by the blindness of prejudice from judging others, and open their eyes to the value and dignity of every human person; and may the Spirit help us all to see and nurture God’s potential in all beings, and especially those who seem least likely to us. That, in times of darkness—in these times of instability and trouble all around us—we may in all things turn to the Lord, our Shepherd, who will guide our steps, take away our fear—even in the shadow of death, keep us from all evil, and refresh and restore us, if only we trust in him. For all who walk the Lenten journey. For all who seek a closer relationship with God. For those in any need or trouble, and for those commended to our prayers, especially, Lauraine; Patricia; Anne M.; Claude; Sonia; the Vasile family; Heather; Isabel; Vivian H.; Trey; Gwen; Cary; Tom K.; Anita; Heleen; Joe D. & family; Marcelle & family; Janice; Sean & Fiona & family; Max; Jesse; Chris; Kathy; and Lally. For those who endure chronic or incurable illnesses, and those who care for sick or aging loved ones. For those who are near death. For those whose names and needs are known only to God. For all who have died, especially former Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Bishop Frank T. Griswold III. For God’s consolation for all who mourn.  Merciful God, Hear our prayers.
