"It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get. ”

Silent Auction and Beefsteak Dinner: October 27. Tickets now available after church, through the parish office, or by CLICKING HERE , price $40 if paid by check or cash, $42 if by credit card. Start collecting items, baskets or decorations now. Please sign up in the narthex if you can help. Questions? Contact Mary Harbinsky at maryharbinsky@optonline.net . See also the pages in September and October Visions .

New credit card policy : following a successful test during "Thrill of the Grill", the vestry has approved a policy of adding a small fee to credit card transactions for ticket and product sales going forward to cover the expense of offering this service. For the silent auction, tickets purchased with cards will be $42 ($40 for cash or check). Auction winners may pay with a credit card, but will be assessed a 5% fee to cover processing expenses. As always, payment by cash or check will NOT incur any additional fee.

St. Paul's Shelter Meal is October 16. URGENT Please sign up in the narthex if you can offer part of the meal or drive or serve. Please also let Joan Molee and Gill Otto know if you can help. We still need 1 driver/server (John S will help serve, so it is possible you only need to drive to John's house, not all the way into Paterson), and a main course. Please approach Mary-Esther Arther or Rev. Jon if you would like financial support for the cost of ingredients.

Amazon Smile : when you shop online, use smile.amazon.com and choose St. David's. It doesn't cost you anything extra, but St. David's gets a donation. To select us, visit smile.amazon.com/ch/22-2016285

Grocery Cards/vouchers : purchase grocery cards for your use, and St. David’s receives a donation, or purchase vouchers which are pooled to support food pantries in the communities we serve. During 2018 so far, we have distributed $4000 to five local food pantries. Thank you!
