In addition, we are also pleased to announce that Alex Bi has graciously accepted the position of Choir Director! He will begin rehearsing with the choir after this Sunday’s 10AM church service. The choir has been on hiatus, so we look forward to Alex’s direction and rebuilding this important worship ministry. Alex welcomes singers of all abilities, from novice to advanced, to join our choir.
We are preparing complete profiles on Joel and Alex that we will share next week.
We welcome Joel and his family, and Alex, to St. Mary Anne’s! Alleluia!
A number of parishioners answered Fr. John’s plea and helped with the set-up, sale, and clean-up of last Saturday’s yard sale to benefit Clayton, a disabled parishioner.
A shout-out of thanks to: Jeff Smith, Larry & Linda Gibeck, Michael Garrity, Judy & Pat Lynch, Janice & Andy Flood, Nancy Leizear, Karen Schaeffer, and Phyllis & Bob Doyle. Proceeds from the sale were $500.00!
We have responded to Bishop Santosh’s plea to give assistance to the Bahamian people devastated by Hurricane Dorian. This week, Fr. John sent a $5,000 check to the Bishop on behalf of St. Mary Anne’s. Bishop San is now enroute to hand deliver this contribution, along with other Diocesan church donations, to the Bishop of the Bahamas.
The ECW generously donated $2,000.00 plus the $1366.00 proceeds from last Sunday’s Donation Only Bake Sale. The Vestry allocated $1500.00. An additional donation amount of $134.00 was given.
Thank you for your contributions and concern for your Bahamian brothers and sisters in Christ.
