Parish Email for Friday, 3 May 2024


Join the ECW for our church-wide spring book drive to benefit BookSmiles, a local non-profit that provides books to under-resourced school districts throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia. We will be collecting new and gently used children’s books from April 14 through June 2. Whether fiction or nonfiction, we are looking to collect books from ages infant to high school. If you would like to donate books starting on April 14, please put them in the collection bin in the Parish Hall. If you would like to make a monetary donation for the book drive, please see either Rachael O. or Linda K. or leave a donation in a labelled envelope in the collection plate. To learn more about the type and quality of materials BookSmiles accept, please watch the following video. If you have any questions about the book drive, please see Rachael O.

Come to church this weekend for birthday and anniversary blessings!
