Martin Luther King Day of Service

A hospital experience can be terrifying and traumatic for both a child and their family. While others strive to find a cure, you can help with the stress and emotional impact of illness in the here and now. By making whimsical pillowcases, children can be given an emotional boost, while resources and tools help families better understand and cope with the experience. So join us for a day of service at St. Asaph’s on Monday, January 20th beginning at 10am.

Join us at Saint Asaph’s to participate in a Day of Service on Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 20th.  We are once again joining forces again with ConKerr for our project. These fun pillowcases really help to make a very difficult time a little easier, and they hopefully put a smile on the faces of sick children. Shivanee Raj usually spearheads this project 
and does an outstanding job! 
 
On MLK Day, we’ll meet in St. Asaph’s Parish Hall to sew pillowcases from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m (setup beginning at 9:30 a.m.).  This project is perfect for all students of all ages. Even our youngest students have enjoyed using the sewing machines (under supervision) and making something special for a sick child. We hope you will join us for this special activity!
 
Sewing Machines Needed on Loan
Volunteers are needed to lend additional sewing machines and extension cords.  So, if you have a portable sewing machine, and would be willing to loan it to us for this event, it would be really helpful!! Last year, the pillowcases were being created faster than we could stitch them together! So extra machines would mean that we could create even more pillowcases!! If you have any further questions, feel free to contact Janet Barrett

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
