Announcements for this week

Announcements for the Last Sunday after Pentecost        Christ the King

If you are a newcomer or a visitor—welcome!  Please fill out a contact card found in your pew.  Let’s get to know one another!  St. Joseph’s is a place of worship, prayer, fellowship and study.  Normally we pray Morning Prayer at 7:30 a.m. and Evening Prayer at 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Please join us for prayer and fellowship whenever you can.  The “poor plate” located by the baptismal font funds our fellowship and outreach ministries.  Thank you for your gifts!

Clergy schedule: Karen’s normal Sabbath is Monday, and her usual workdays are Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  In the event of a pastoral emergency, she is available other days on her cell phone.

We will have a Thanksgiving Day Holy Eucharist on November 28th at 10:30 a.m. followed by a potluck feast.  There is a sign-up sheet in the Parish Hall.

There will be a memorial service for Doug Merrill’s mother, Jean Merrill, at St. Joseph’s on November 30th at 10:30 a.m.  All are welcome.  Jean Merrill passed away in Florida on September 14th.

Collection for St. Joseph’s community in need:   We invite you to bring any of the following items and place them in the basket at the back of the church for our breakfast and outreach needs; these items are part of the offerings of our life and labor:

toilet paper/paper towels                                      socks

tee shirts and work pants (32—38)                     quarters

men’s underwear (32, 34, 36)                                grits

Does your change jar need extra space? We are collecting “quarters for cleaning” for our neighbors who need to do their laundry at the laundromat.  Each load costs about $5 in quarters, so if you have quarters you’d like to donate, just put them in a baggie marked for laundry!  Thank you!              

The next St. Joseph’s workday will be December 7th from 9 a.m. until noon with lunch afterward.  The primary focus areas will be raking and mulching the leaves, pruning bushes, completing any planting as determined by Jamie and a general pick up of grounds.  Please join us for any part (or all) of the morning and the meal following.  Talk with David Hilsabeck for more information or to suggest possible projects.

Got extra Christmas greeting cards and 2020 calendars?  Please pass them along to Polly for Wellness City writers-mental health Citizens, who meet as a writers’ group weekly. Thanks!
