With the Bishop's schedule uncertain while preparing for this year's virtual Annual Meeting, he will be offering reflections on elements in the Book of Common Prayer and theology during the months of September and October. He will also be addressing questions and concerns you have on worship, theology, the practice of faith, or social issues.  If you have a question, please send it to the Bishop at Questions for the Bishop (be sure to include your name and congregation). He will do his best to answer your questions.  Please note that this email address is only used for such questions and survey results. The Bishop never uses it for communication. He looks to begin the Wednesday Scripture studies again in November after the October Annual Meeting of Diocesan Convention (October 24).

A Letter from Pastor Katlin
Luke 17:3-6
“If your brother or sister sins against you, rebuke them; 
and if they repent, forgive them.
 Even if they sin against you seven times in a day 
and seven times come back to you saying ‘I repent,’ 
you must forgive them.”
 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!”
He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed,
you can say to this mulberry tree, 
‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.

A Blessing for all the Children 

With smiling faces and eager minds, they came. Using Zoom video communications, Holy Apostles Family Ministry held its first Sunday School out-of-the classroom session this past Sunday with six of our young parishioners. Our bright students were online and ready to go five minutes before the actual 10:15 am start time! 

Their first assignment? If someone came to your home, what would one see that tells me your family believes in God the Father? Demos, Sofia, AJ, Alyssa, Trinity, and Leland each came prepared to share personal stories about Christian religious objects found in their home. Some of the items brought were rosary prayer beads given at Baptism, a Greek Orthodox icon, self made art, several examples of crosses, a Children’s Bible, a Family Bible and a candle. 

In honor of the Feast of St. Francis of Assis, the children listened to a story about Friar Francis and the birds. The students were asked to share their thoughts about Francis preaching to wild birds. Without much prompting, each young one said they too talk to their pets regularly. Sofia says hello every morning to her pet and her pet always replies. At the end of the session, our kids brought their pets into the video screen and Pastor Katlin offered a blessing for all the children and their pets. 

Thank you to our parents for their participation and thanks to Sr. Warden Doug for setting up the Zoom video conference. And thank you Pastor Katlin for all that you do for the children of our parish.
