Advent Worship

Jo Harney

Today, Wednesday 11/30, we had our first Advent noonday worship for parents and parishioners in the chapel.  We meditated on the word “hope” as an Advent theme.  We will continue to have these noonday Eucharists on Wednesdays for the next three weeks.  All are welcome to attend and to receive Holy Communion.

Advent Doves

Jo Harney

It is time for the Advent Doves project—our yearly effort to provide Christmas gifts for needy children at a number of local preschools and other educational institutions.  We have “adopted” a number of children, and you may choose one or more of these children for whom to purchase gifts.  Suggested gifts are provided for each age level and gender.  If you would like to choose an Advent Dove, please use this link to sign up.

  • Gifts should be wrapped and clearly tagged for your selected recipient (i.e. "StM25, GIRL, 3 years")  (Denise has these tags.)
  • Suggested spending limit of $35
  • Gifts are preferred (instead of gift cards)
  • NEW this year -- Please drop items in box near Denise's office by Friday, December 9th, 2016

Try to include your child in the choosing of gifts; what a great example you’ll be for developing his/her own compassion and generosity!

Thank you to all who have donated clothing to be sold at the Angel Threads booth at the Green Show.  This is the CCEP-sponsored booth and we are very lucky to have two alumni parents (Laura Simon and Laura McGinley) still involved in running this effort.  We do need volunteers to help sort and display the clothing on Thursday afternoon, December 1 and all day Friday, December 2.  If you can help, please let Jo or Denise know.
