Volunteers needed! We are looking to grow our Service Minister roster. Would you be willing to serve as a greeter? Usually you are asked to come 15-minutes early to greet people, give out bulletins and welcome them by answering any questions. Greeters also bring the elements to the Altar for the Holy Eucharist and take the collection. Usually you would serve every few weeks. Please speak to Mother Vicki if you have any questions or would like to serve.

If you would like to receive our weekly email blast please email your name and address to parish@yonkerschurch.org.

Would you like to host Coffee Hour? This involves choosing a date and bringing refreshments. Please sign up at the sign up table outside the Guild Room. We have a team each week that can assist you with the details.

We thank you, Lord, for all the blessings of this life, especially the baptism of Rylee Janiyah Alberga and for the marriage of Christianna Piwinski (Angie’s daughter) and Paulo Varrenti.

We pray for and give thanks to God for our 325th Anniversary as a parish, for this neighborhood of Getty Square, for all who live and work here, for all who come here for goods and services, for those who are homeless and hungry, for the Sharing Community, Salvation Army, YWCA and the YMCA, the Yonkers Fire and Police Departments, and all who work to help others. We pray for healing for those who struggle with addictions, and physical and mental disabilities. Please bless our vision with compassion and love, so that this Congregation may be the hands and feet of Christ in Getty Square. Amen.

Prayer of Lament O God, you made us in your own image and redeemed us through Jesus your Son: Look with compassion on the whole human family and especially in this Episcopal Diocese of New York as we lament our past complicity in slavery, racism, and the unfair treatment of all peoples; take away the arrogance and hatred which infect our hearts; break down the walls that separate us; unite us in bonds of love; and work through our struggle and confusion to accomplish your purposes on earth; that, in your good time, all nations and races may serve you in harmony around your heavenly throne; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We hold in our prayers: Our newly elected officials, Wayne Kempton, Marie Baptiste, Ellen Partipiano, Philip Feller, Helene Wright, Ruby Dixon, Joan Smith, David Kesslinger, Carol Shoemaker, William Sheridan, Neil Parkey Sr. Carolyn Darr, Elyse Gierlich, Denise Edwards, Phyllis Jackson, Kevin Kidd, Tom Cacavio, Stephen Kubasek, The Rev. Leonard Klein, Laurie and Kyle Stewart, Mary Kowalski, Ival Debride, Anthony Muranelli, Harriette Forster, Eve Shepard, Cecile Davis, Beverly Anthonyson, Corey Belinski, Bernice Walder, Sal Bah, Antoinette Forster, Hope Mackey, Fatima Mishk, Kimberly DeShon, Shelley Henderson, Naomi Henderson, Aida Carino, Liliana Moschetta, Tom O’Connor, Monica Harmon, Beverly Sims, Ralph Tremonte, and The Rev. Canon Claudia Wilson. We pray for Anthony Johnson as he continues his diaconal discernment, for immigrant families who have been separated as they cross over into the US, for tighter gun control, for those impacted by the California bar shooting, for those in war-torn countries, for those impacted by volcanoes, hurricanes, wild fires and flooding throughout the world, and for our President, our country, our first responders, all refugees and immigrants especially the children, and our military.

We pray for those who have died: for Cecelia Howell Ziegler in whose memory today’s altar flowers are given, Terrance Randall, Joan Andrews, Angelo Martinelli, Eugene Peterson, Peter Higgins, Ken McKait, Linda Baldanzi, and for those who were killed in the California bar shooting, the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting, for all those the world over who have died from war, terrorism, and natural disasters, and we lament those who have died over the centuries due to slavery, lynching, racism and the unequal and unjust treatment of peoples in this country.

As well as these additional All Saints remembrances: Michael Block and Martin Vissers, by Denise Hackl; George Davies, Edwin Clement, Don Owens, Mary Owens by George Mbye, Adelaid Floyd Torrence, Otto & John Karsten, Eileen Noonan, Ed Walker, Edith & Al Apolinario, by Carol Apolinario.
