Guess what? “Pre-Grungy Sunday” work is already going on, getting ready for the Ham & Oyster Supper. But it’s not too late for you to join the fun! Come out this Sunday to receive Communion in your “grungies,” then let’s get to work preparing a hospitable campus for the hundreds of visitors we will receive on 5 November!
This weekend was the Feast of St. Francis, when many like to offer a blessing of the animals. St. Francis saw God’s handiwork everywhere he looked, which meant that even the animals were deserving of care and honor as they, too, are God’s gracious gift. We blessed the pets on Saturday and the children’s stuffed animals on Sunday!
I would like to thank everyone who helped make our Kick-Off Sunday a huge success. It is true what they say “many hands make light work”. From the setup, food donations, serving help, and finally clean up so many of you pitched in and lent your hands. I am so very grateful to all of you. The day was filled with sunshine, fun, and fellowship. Looking forward to doing it again next September. Faithfully, Gretchen
