Please see Maureen Young or Robin Yeager to sign up to bring a dish and help with clean up. Bishop Brown will also bless the rectory.
Volunteer Ministry Update
Last week, we welcomed Canterbury at University of Tennessee in Chattanooga and Rivers School (Westin, MA) will be staying with us. This week, we welcome Dalton School in New York City (they have been coming for many years) and Colorado State University.
As of today, we will host 462 volunteers from January 01 through July 31, 2015. Our goal is 520. The ministry is off to a great 10th year! A big thank you to Robin Yeager, Robert Perry, Noel Prentiss, Chef Earl Fontan, and Elliott Williams for their hard work to get us to this point.
Adult Christian Ed on Tuesdays
Adult Christian Ed will continue on Tuesday. Dinner is from 5:45p-6:45p with study to follow until 8p. During Lent, we will study three things: (1) What it means to be a Christian; (2) What it means to be an Episcopalian/Anglican; (3) What it means to be a member of Annunciation. This week we will continue to study an overview of Anglicanism and the Episcopal Church.
