Inquirers Class Planning Session this Sunday after both services

Sunday, September 11, after each service, we will have a planning session for starting an "inquirers" class that is designed for those new to the Episcopal Church or interested in knowing more about the Episcopal Church, to learn about our faith tradition and to understand the "what's and why's" of our practices. 
Inquirers Classes
The classes will meet for about an hour on days most people can attend.  So if you are wondering what it means to be an "Episcopalian", and what the Anglican-Episcopal tradition is all about . . . these classes will be for you!   Those of age groups from high school and beyond are encouraged to attend.   Inquiring minds are most welcome.  Look for more information to come during the month.  Please feel free to e-mail or call Fr. David with any questions.

Pill Bottle ministry has contributed 1,250 bottles to Haiti

PIll Bottles We are in the process of delivering another 400 cleaned pill bottles to Maison de Naissance in Torbeck, Haiti. After adding in our previous delivery, our parish has contributed, cleaned, and packaged 1,250 pill bottles!

Keep them coming (leave them in the Outreach Room at the base of the stairs)!  The pharmacy at the maternity center serves 2,500-3,000 patients per month, so they really appreciate the bottles - many of which will be used over and over.  Thanks for your help!
