St. Andrew's News: 29 November 2020
November 27, 2020, 8:00 AM

Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Andrew's,

I look forward to celebrating with you the Feast of St. Andrew on Sunday, even if we must do so at a physical distance from one another. However, Due to the high rates of COVID in the Diocese we are being required to remain in streaming-only mode through January 1st. On that date we will celebrate the Feast of the Holy Name at 7:00 pm with Memorial Episcopal Church, Bolton Hill and their Rector, the Rev. Grey Maggiano. The Rev. Brandt Montgomery, Chaplain of St. James' School in Hagerstown, will preach.

We live stream our Sunday service at 10:00 am via our Facebook page, our YouTube channel and our website. A copy of the Bulletin for that service is attached.

We continue to stream the 8:00 service via Zoom. You may use Zoom by visiting https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89538636563?pwd=aDZ6SXUxZTMvMklKSi81UkVlaGpIZz09, and you may access the audio stream by telephoning 301-715-8592 and using meeting ID 8953-863-6563, password 201189.

On the third Sunday of each month we take up a special offering to address the needs of hungry people in our community. We collected $158 for our October Healing Sunday offering, which was given to the Centro de Ayuda, which serves the material needs of immigrants in Anne Arundel County. Our November Healing Sunday offering will be given to the new food pantry that our Seventh Day Adventist friends established in Pasadena this year. You may make a special gift to the Healing Sunday offering by making a note on the memo line of your check or your electronic gift.

The Rector's Discretionary Fund enables me to work on the church's behalf to care for those in need in our community, and to support the needs of worthy ministries, as I am made aware of these needs. 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 family's income please don't hesitate to reach out to me personally.

--Fr. Jason

 

Almyghgtie God, which has geuen suche grace to thy Apostle saynct Andrew, that he counted the sharp and painful death of the crosse to be an high honour, and a great glory; Graunt us to take and esteme all troubles and aduersities which shal come unto us for thy sake, as thinges proffytable for us toward the obtaining of euerlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lorde.

--Collect for Sainct Andrewes Daye, 1552 Book of Common Prayer
