2 Corinthians 4:5-7
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Our third class of “Via Media” (“The Middle Way”) is on Monday evening, June 4th. This is a great group! If you are struggling with your faith, the Bible, doctrine, and/or the Episcopal Church, this is a safe place to find out more and ask questions. Each session includes a video, handouts and group discussion. Six more classes will be offered on Monday nights with the next one in the Library on Monday night, June 4th from 7 – 8:30 p.m. The other classes in this course are on June 11 and 25, July 9 and 23 and September 10. This is also preparation for adults who might be interested in Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation with Bishop Mary Glasspool in September. Please let me know if you are coming (firstname.lastname@example.org; 914 969 2969).
Please put Sunday, September 23rd on your calendar. This will be a great day in our congregation as we rejoice in our 325th anniversary as a parish! We need much help with advertising and planning. Please let me know if you would like to help out.
Please note that there have been a rash of mail box thefts in Yonkers. I thought that they had found the culprits, but it seems that more thefts of mail have occurred. Please ONLY place your mail in mail slots within the post office, or hand them directly to your carrier. It is sad that we have to worry about identity theft.
We ask your continued prayers as we as a Parish continue to consider questions that directly connect with our understanding of God’s call to us in this place and at this time. And as we continue to pray for this Congregation, for The Sharing Community, for the City of Yonkers, for Westchester County and New York State social services, and for the homeless, tourists, and residents of Yonkers, may we remember that God has always been here, and will continue to lead us, guide us, and inspire us with new resolve, new energy, and new ideas for this wondrous city!
Blessings and love,
The Reverend Canon Victoria Sirota
