This is the week to change your clocks and “Spring Forward” so you don’t miss church on Sunday!
Our Covid protocol has changed! We will be following the CDC guidelines for Gloucester County, which will vary based on the local infection rate and, secondarily, the availability of our local hospitals to cope with current cases.
We will additionally wear our masks while singing whenever the daily new cases count for Gloucester county exceeds 15/100k.
As of this past Monday, the CDC COVID-19 Community level was Medium and the daily new case count was 8.8. This means that masks are optional for those who are up-to-date on the COVID-19 vaccinations and who are not at high risk for severe illness.
You are encouraged to wear a mask if you are at all concerned about it. You will not be the only one!
Join us this Sunday night at 7pm on Zoom as we begin our Lenten series, “Growing in the Wilderness.” Each week we will begin with a video from the Diocese of Atlanta, followed by conversation in prayer. We will close with Compline at 8pm.
Kitchen of Hope is tomorrow, Saturday, 12 March. Contact Vivian H. (856-366-8461) if you’d like to help!
Are you interested in Confirmation? The Bishop will be in our neighborhood on Saturday, 9 April, at St. Stephen’s, Mullica Hill. Speak to Fr. Todd if you would like to undergo this rite affirming your mature decision to belong to the Episcopal Church.
The Easter Vigil (16 April 2022) is one of the four days set aside in the Episcopal calendar as especially appropriate for baptisms. If you would like to be baptized, or have a child baptized, please speak to Fr. Todd as soon as possible.
In honor of all our mothers, the ECW is supporting Mothers Matter, a nonprofit which aids moms in need. One of their projects is to give out lovely gift bags to moms at Ronald McDonald House, daycares, and cancer patients in hospitals. We are collecting toiletries to fill their bags and we invite you to help! There are collection boxes in the Nave and Parish Hall. Their Wish List includes: Liquid Hand Soap, Mini Hand Sanitizer, Small Hand Lotion, Facial Wipes, Chapstick, Lipstick, Emory Boards, Nail Polish, Nail Polish Remover Packets, Playing Cards, Puzzle Books, and Journals. These items can all be found at Dollar Tree! If you prefer to give a monetary donation, please put it in the collection plate in an envelope marked ECW/Mothers Matter. Thanks so much!!
