Youngsters, fourth grade and older, and adults too will learn all about the acolyte ministry at the up-coming training session.

Parish News
Rector Transition Update
From the Senior Warden
The Vestry and some key lay leaders will meet with Rev. Laura Sheridan-Campbell, Director for Formation and Transition at the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego on Wednesday, August 21 to discuss the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the next steps in our transition process. The following week, at the regular meeting of the Vestry, the convening of the Call Committee as well as the upcoming Stewardship Campaign will be discussed.

Please keep your Vestry and parish lay leadership in your thoughts and prayers as we proceed. We will need both people with past experience of a Rector search and new people who would like to be part of this important stage in our Parish life to participate. If you feel that you are called to serve as a member of the Call Committee, please let me know.

Yours in Christ,
Paul Laedlein
Prayers for the School Year
Christ Church Day School
Stop by the Service Ministry table this Sunday, August 18, and pen a note of encouragement for returning day school students. The CCDS campus will be filled with new and returning students as classes begin Wednesday, August 21. Postcards and pens will be available, all you need to add are your pearls of wisdom!

Helping Fill the Pantry
St. Mark's, City Heights
St. Mark's in City Heights serves a diverse population, one which is often food insecure. The food in their pantry makes a difference for low income seniors, refugee families, and their unhoused visitors. You can support their ministry by bringing non-perishable food to church on Sunday, we transport the donations to St. Mark's. In the month of August they are specifically collection beans - canned and dried.

The Diocese and Beyond
From Bishop Susan
Letter on Gun Violence
Dear Friends in Christ,
Since last weekend, three episodes of gun violence in our country have ended the lives of beloved children of God. I grieve with those who suffer and feel deep frustration at the ever-increasing toll of death and injury by gun violence . In the case of the  shooting in El Paso , I condemn in the strongest possible terms the ethnic hatred (against our Hispanic sisters and brothers, in this case) that appears to have motivated the shooter, like many mass murderers before him.
