Priestly Perusings

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! to all who helped make the Bishop’s Visitation such a wonderful experience. Welcome officially to all those who are now not only members of All Saints’, but also Confirmed Communicants of the Episcopal Church: (in alphabetical order) Peter Cherepanov, Jeffrey Robert Dobensky, Wayne Paul Kruglik, Anthony Gene Lombardi, Jacob Anthony Lombardi, Dana Stanley Mazur, Taylor Jae Richard, and Kaitlyn (Kate) Elyse Thormahlen; and to Marion Bullis and Kate Elizabeth Kruglik, who were received into the Episcopal Church. Confirmed Communicants age 16 and over may vote in parish elections, and those age 18 and over may stand for election to vestry and other parish offices. We were also pleased to welcome Grace Sommers Collier and Ashley Shaw Young, members of Christ Church, Greenwich, who were also Confirmed by Bishop Ahrens. Since the occasion was also Father’s Day, it was nice to have a father and son (Tony and Jacob Lombardi) present the gifts of bread and wine, and another father and son pair (Phil and Josh Mazur) serve as ushers.  The reception was abundant and delicious – thank you to Donna and her Kitchen Angels and to all who contributed finger foods to the overflowing table. Thank you, also, to Roberta and the choir and to Amy Perras, flautist, for their uplifting musical leadership. A total of $343 was collected for the Bishop's Discretionary Fund.  What a great parish this is! 

Faithfully,

Susan+

 

SUMMER IS A GOOD TIME FOR SABBATH REST. In the Bible we read that God created the heavens and the earth and then rested from all that labor. It also declares that we human beings are created in the image of God – with the power to make choices, for good or for ill. We can choose to work unceasingly, or to follow the Lord’s example and rest from our labors on a regular basis, a wise practice which helps us be whole and healthy in body, mind, and spirit. Taking some time each week (indeed, even a short time each day) to be nourished by enjoying the rest of Creation and being nourished by its beauty and the love with which it surrounds us, and to listen to Jesus speak in the heart is good for both body and soul.

 

CAMP WASHINGTON is offering a number of attractive activities in this, their 100th year, in addition to summer camp opportunities for children and youth. Please see the bulletin board for information. Registration forms for summer camp sessions are available in the church office.

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO JOSH MAZUR, winner of one of this year’s two Marilyn Altmeyer scholarships offered by the Women’s Group!

 

CONGRATULATIONS TO RHONDA MAZUR, WHO,  ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST, RETIRED FROM TEACHING IN THE CHURCH SCHOOL, after some 17 years of leadership in that ministry.  We are grateful for the ministry she has exercised with such grace. We are now seeking a successor to her very responsible and nurturing leadership with children ages 6 -14, to begin in September. (It would be fine to have two or three persons – male or female - who would rotate leadership) That person (or persons) should love working with children, be compassionate but firm, and be willing to learn along with the children. Fear not - we have great kids and training is available! He or she must submit to a simple background check and participate in the one-day Diocese of CT Safe Church training. If you are interested in using your gifts in this manner, please pray about this ministry opportunity and speak to Mother Davidson or to Rhonda or to Senior Warden Mary Pepides. The Church School is currently in recess until the Fall.

 

MORE THANKS FOR CHURCH SCHOOL TEACHERS: Thank you to all those who have served in this important ministry during the past year – Donna Lydem, Joelle Lamontagne, Rose Lombardi, Anna and Sam Famiglietti, who served our growing and thriving Toddler Class; and to A.J. Perras and Jackie Pineau, who team-taught the Confrimation Class.  

 

THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY BAPTISM will be administered on Sunday, July 9, to Karson Andrew Hanks, infant son of Kenneth and Kristi Likley Hanks. Karson’s mom, Kristi, was Baptized at All Saints’ a number of years ago. Please keep Karson, his parents, and his Godparents in your prayers as they prepare for this new beginning of a life of faith.

 

MOTHER DAVIDSON IS ON VACATION June 19 – July 6. Fr. Bob Stocksdale will supply for her for the two Sundays, and will respond to emergency calls. His phone numbers are: (H) 860-426-1818 and (C) 203-464-2370.
