Congratulations are in order to the folks of St. John’s! Through your steady contributions, we were able to send $1,000 to Episcopal Relief & Development for Haiti earthquake relief. A thank-you letter from them is posted on the bulletin board.
Additionally, we have been able to give almost $13,000 through the Rector’s Discretionary Fund to local people needing help with their rent and utilities.
Both of these major outreach efforts have been made possible through your continued giving to St. John’s. The poor and the needy thank you.
We have begun our study on Thomas Cahill's book The Gifts of the Jews. (He is also the author of How the Irish Saved Civilization.) each Wednesday from 6:30 pm to 7:15 or so. Each session is also broadcast live on Facebook (Friends of St. John’s).
The Bishop will make a visit to St. John’s Thursday-Friday, November 4-5. We will let folks know of any special events as plans are firmed up. Watch for further details.
