From the Rector
Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Greetings from Incheon International Airport. As we await out flight home from Seoul, South Korea, we are grateful for the opportunity to travel but also looking forward to being home. Our little girl Emmy just turned two, and we can’t wait to see her, our family, and our friends.

While I have been in and out of Hong Kong and the vicinity a few times, it was on this trip that I feel like I really got the flavor of these beautiful countries. The people have been friendly and eager to share their culture and traditions with us. On two separate occasions, perfect strangers asked where we were from and welcomed us to both China and Korea. Reading or watching the news gives such a limited perspective of a place and its people. Traveling, on the other hand, puts us in direct contact with the people, heart to heart and face to face. This is where bridges are built.

I am grateful to Fathers Cromey, Coats, and Ogburn for holding down the fort in my absence. And while we are still in the midst of summer, there are many exciting things on the horizon as we approach the beginning of a new program year. I hope that everyone has a chance to get away and recharge their batteries, returning ready for another year of mission and ministry.

Blessings, Father Rick
Summer Outreach Update
Sloatsburg Community Food Pantry is in need of child friendly cereals. These are not offered by the food bank but frequently requested by families with multiple children. St Mary's is making a collection of the children's favorites and will deliver in the next couple of weeks. Donations can be left at St Mary's during weekday office hours or in the church or chapel at the weekends. Thank you!

Summer Camp Sponsorships being organized by St Mary's have provided 18 children with a wonderful camp experience. St Mary's will be giving the Tuxedo Town Recreation Department a check for $8,400 to cover fees. Then we heard that the most anticipated and exciting Friday trip was too expensive for several children and they were not able to go. So we committed a further $200 to ensure that everyone who wanted to go to 'Splashdown' in Connecticut could do so. Happiness!

Donations from parishioners and friends for camp sponsorships currently amount to $2,775. There is still time to make a donation ! St Mary's Outreach fund will make up the difference when all 'camp specific' donations are in.

The Yard Sale is on September 21st and 22nd, and will again be at the Train Station. We have received many donations already, for which we are grateful, but we have limited storage space, so if you are able to store your outgrown and no longer needed items, it would help us if they were not delivered to St Mary's until two weeks prior to the event. Please make sure everything is clean and in good working order. No books please!

Thanks for all your past support for St Mary's Outreach programs!
