St James Quilters create the beautiful quilts that are provided to each child living at Covenant Shelter.  Do you know how to quilt or want to learn?  Please join our group that meets on the second Thursday of every month at 10:00 AM in the parlor room of Seabury Center. Bring your lunch to stay until 2:00 PM.  There is also the Thames River Quilter (Bee) group that meets the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM in the parlor room.  Bring your own lunch!

Region Missionary
The Episcopal Church of Connecticut has organized the diocese into six regions (replacing the former deanery organizations).  For the Southeastern Connecticut region, which consists of sixteen parishes, our missionary is the Rev. Rachel Thomas.

Rev. Thomas' statement:

I am honored to continue this call of Region Missionary, sharing the life of God’s Spirit amongst the people of the Southeast Region. The last two years of getting to know the 16 parishes, as well as numerous other nonprofits and agencies, has brought me face to face with Jesus’ love made flesh in our own time.

As someone who brought 10 years of lay ministry and 26 years of parish ministry into this role, I am constantly aware of the need for new wineskins for new wine. And deeply aware that, while they may change form, the core beliefs I have held onto for all these years: grace, forgiveness in Christ, the importance of beloved community, the gift of creation – remain.

I love beaches and sitting in the sun, as well as swimming, cycling, and walking our Brittany Spaniel, Coleman, with my husband Eric. Whenever we can, we see Eric’s three grown children and four grandchildren, who live in Manhattan, Brooklyn (NY) and Southington.
