Welcome 

 


The Fishermans Net: 

Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Andrew's,

St. Andrew’s will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 3rd from 10:00-4:00. We need at least 3 volunteers; please let me know if you are available. All donations will be by appointment; to schedule a donation please visit this link. Please feel free to share the link with friends, family, coworkers and neighbors.

We hope you have been able to participate in our live stream of our Sunday morning services. We stream at 10:00 am via our Facebook page, if you miss the live broadcast you can find the video posted afterwards at our website and on our YouTube channel. The bulletin, children's bulletin and Prayers of the People for this Sunday are attached to this email.

We continue to stream the 8:00 service via Zoom. (Apologies for the technical difficulties last Sunday.) You may use Zoom by visiting https://zoom.us/j/7858850465, and you may access the audio stream by telephoning 301-715-8592 and using meeting ID 785-885-0465. Please feel free to stick around after the service for virtual coffee hour.

We are also continuing our 9:00-9:30 Sunday Bible study, “going through the Bible in a year,” via Zoom, at the same numbers (https://zoom.us/j/7858850465 or by phone 301-715-8592, meeting ID 785-885-0465),. Any and all are welcome and encouraged to join in.

Bishop Sutton has authorized clergy to hear confessions by phone or Zoom, or in person if absolutely necessary. I continue to be available by appointment, and I will continue to say Evening Prayer at 6:30 on Tuesday evenings via Zoom. You may access Evening Prayer by using the same numbers as the 8:00 service : https://zoom.us/j/7858850465 or by phone 301-715-8592, meeting ID 785-885-0465.

We appreciate everyone's faithfulness in giving during this difficult time; while we are saving on utilities most of our other costs are fairly fixed. A number of our people have begun using the Givelify app recently, and have found it to be a very convenient way to give to St. Andrew's. If you would like help setting up Givelify please let me know. If you prefer not to use an app, you may make an electronic donation to St. Andrew's through the Diocese's website at this link. We are of course continuing to count and deposit checks sent by mail, and we hope you will consider consolidating multiple weeks' gifts into a single check to minimize the amount of paper we have to handle. If you have any questions about giving to St. Andrew's please don't hesitate to contact our Treasurer, Pat Quick, at treasurer@standrewspasadena.com.

On the third Sunday of each month we are taking up a special offering to address the needs of hungry people in our community. You may make a special gift to this offering by making a note on the memo line of your check or your electronic gift.

The Rector's Discretionary Fund is a means of enabling me to work on the church's behalf to care for those in need in our community. I am always glad to receive gifts to this fund (either electronically or by checks made out to St. Andrew's with Rector's Discretionary Fund on the memo line), especially at this time when need is increasing significantly. If you are facing job loss or a reduction in your income please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

--Fr. Jason

You, who are the splendour of your Father's glory,

Who bring forth light from light,

Who are the light of light and the source of light,

Who irradiate the day of days

 

And are the true sun, descend into us,

Shining in your ever-lasting brightness

And infuse our minds

With the rays of the Holy Ghost.

 

In our prayers we call on you as the Father,

The Father in his perpetual glory,

The father with his potent grace.

May he restrain dangerous sin,

 

May he inform energetic action

And dull the teeth of the Envious One,

May he turn harsh adversity to good

And bestow the grace on us to act well.

 

May he guide and rule the mind.

May faith glow with fervor

Within a body kept chaste and faithful

And be a stranger to the poison of deceit.

 

May Christ be our food

And faith be our drink;

Let us joyfully and soberly drink

In the intoxication of the Spirit.

 

May this day pass in joy.

Let shame be, as it were,

Our early morning twilight, faith our noon

And may our mind not know the dusk of evening.

 

The dawn is advancing in its course--

Let the Dawn manifest itself completely,

The Son altogether in the Father

And the Father altogether in the Word.

 

--Ambrose of Milan (d. 397)
