Upcoming Events and Activities
 
Each Sunday we decorate the Altar with flowers, light a sanctuary candle, and consume bread and wine.  An altar flower donation is $45; sanctuary candle $5; and, communion wine or communion wafers, $10.  You may donate as a memorial honoring someone deceased, or as a thank-offering to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or other special event in your life.  Contact the parish office or an altar guild member for more information. 
 
The Jumble Shoppe will be closed from August 1 until it reopens on Saturday, August 26.
 
Save the dates:
 
The Community Meal will be served on Saturday, August 5 at noon.  Helpers of all ages are welcome - no experience necessary!  Just come at 10:30 AM that day to help out Dan Ivey and the other volunteers.
 
Our next "single service Sunday" will be on August 13, with a single 9 AM Rite 1 service followed by a potluck brunch on that day.  This bringing together of the parishioners who usually attend one of our three services went very well on July 16, so please join us for our next "coming together" on August 13!
 
The Supper Group's August activity will be an evening at a Connecticut Tigers baseball game at Dodd Stadium on Friday, August 25.  The event will benefit our Lord's Pantry food distribution mission.  Contact the parish office or Lori Sarkett to reserve seats as soon as possible.  Tickets are $10, with $5 provided as a donation to our Lord's Pantry.
 

Registration is now open for Camp Washington's 2nd Annual Youth Festival, which runs September 9 and 10 in Morris, CT. Campers in grades 8-12 will spend the weekend swimming, canoeing, zip-lining, and hiking, as well as archery, arts & crafts, trying out a ropes course, and paddling CORCLS (flying-saucer-like small boats).

 

Camp starts Saturday morning at 10 a.m., continues with food trucks, music, and more Saturday evening and finishes Sunday with brunch and a 1 p.m. pickup.  Registration is $25, thanks to the generosity of the Bishops' Fund for Children. Scholarships are available but space is limited, so register here today.
