Tee Shirt Memorial: Heeding God’s call
Like many Philadelphians and others, the people of St. Asaph’s are bearing witness to the appalling deaths caused by illegal weapons each year. Once again this year we will publicize this tragic situation by setting up the memorial created by “Heeding God’s Call.” 

Please come to St. Asaph’s at 9:30 or 10 AM this Saturday, Feb. 15, to lend a hand hanging up colorful tee-shirts for the 300+ victims during 2019. Even if your time is limited, it is a very meaningful activity for those of us who have helped before.

“Heeding God’s Call” requests a donation of $300.00. If you can help with a donation of any amount, you may write a check to that organization and give it to Mary Allen, Barry, or the office during the period the exhibit is up.
 
Children’s Choir

Please advertise that on Thursdays, February 6, 13, and 20, children will gather from 4-4:30 pm to rehearse a song for the Feast of the Transfiguration on Sunday, February 23.

Taize Pilgrimage

 

If you, (or someone you know), are between the ages of 18 and 29, you, (and they) are in for a wonderful opportunity! The Bishop has sanctioned a diocesan pilgrimage to Taizé for young adults this coming summer. You may have heard the Taizé chants in church from time to time, and although the music is wonderful, what marks a pilgrimage there is getting to know other young adults in an open, non-judgmental way with plenty of opportunity for conversations about what gives our lives meaning, and how God might be calling us in today’s context of climate change, political divisiveness, inequality, gun-violence, and an uncertain future.Please join me at St. Asaph’s on Tuesday, November 12 at 6:30 for the first of several times of preparation. There is a wonderful Taizé web-site to get you started. [http://taize.fr/en_rubrique9.html] We are still working out the cost, and there will be financial aid for up to 50% of your share, (or more, depending on need).
Many blessings!
The Rev. Barbara Briggs
