What are you doing here? — Women’s retreat

christ-sophia-2St. John’s  Episcopal Church Women will offer a summer retreat day on Saturday July 20 from 9:45a.m to 2 p.m. The day will be facilitated by our Priest Assciate the Rev. Lyn G. Brakeman.  The theme will be What Are You Doing Here?  It is a question we might ask ourselves and one that God asks our biblical ancestors — and therefore us as well.

Lyn will offer two short meditations and there will be time for silent, individual prayer, reflection, and sharing as desired at the end. Treat yourself to a day just for yourself and God — no work, no wagging of tongues, all time “wasted,” for the sake of your Soul.

Please bring a brown-bag lunch. Beverages will be provided. There is no fee and the day is open to parishioners and interested guests.

Please let Kathleen Scargle McCormick know by email or in person or phone if you plan to attend.

Serving St. Luke’s/San Lucas

Almost every week, members of the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) bring clothing and gently used goods donated by parishioners to St. Luke’s/San Lucas Episcopal Church in Chelsea. St. Luke’s has  a Food Pantry and Thrift Shop serving many in the Chelsea IMG_0453community, and our donations are much appreciated. At right, ECW members Rosemary Kverek and Maureen Lavely greet parishoners and the rector, Father Edgar Guiterrez-Duarte, after dropping off goods from the recent Sidewalk Sale.


“Gently Used” Clothing for St. Luke’s in Chelsea

St. John’s ECW has been collecting gently used clothing for children, men and women, and donating them to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Chelsea. The rector, Father Edgar, is very appreciative of all the donations we bring over.

The clothes are sold on Saturdays in the church’s store. Besides clothing, kitchen items, shoes, boots and games, toys and books are needed. Donations can be brought to St. John’s on Sunday mornings, as well as Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 to 11.
