The Fishermans Net: 

Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Andrew's,

We are making preparations to gather together for worship again once Anne Arundel County lifts restrictions on gatherings and we are given permission by our Bishop.  Even after we are able to gather in person, we will continue to make our services available online to those who need or prefer to stay home.  Please join me in thanking Don Durham and Mark Cox for all of their efforts getting our audio and video to work.

This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost.  We live stream our Sunday service at 10:00 am via our Facebook page, and you may 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 will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Wednesday, June 3rd from 10:00-4:00.  Thanks to all who have volunteered to help out; if you are interested but haven't told me yet, please let me know if you are available.  All donations will be by appointment, and as of this writing only 15 slots remain open; to schedule a donation please visit this link.  Please feel free to share the link with friends, family, coworkers and neighbors.

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 take 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.

Bishop Sutton has authorized clergy to hear confessions by phone or Zoom as well as in person.  I am also once again permitted to anoint the sick.  Please contact me either by email (priest@standrewspasadena.com) or phone (410-241-4838) to arrange for these pastoral services.

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


--Fr. Jason

Let the nobles of the celestial court

And of the true prince of the world

Offer unanimously praises in honor of his victory

To the most glorious God,


Who in his surpassing mercy

Brought the human race back to life

And taught it to know that life,

When he crushed Hell.


For he gathers apostles to himself.

From these Gregory is descended,

Who gives his son Augustine

To the idolatrous English;


He sent out his son,

Not by the seed of the flesh,

But by spiritual growth,

To bring the glory of Christ to fierce nations.


As soon as he has carried that out

With all effort and with the help of God,

He is summoned from the vaults of heaven

To share there the joy of the angels.


Therefore we suppliants pray to you,

Excellent maker of created things,

To give your humble servants what is yours

According to the speech of this your soldier.


Glory and splendor be to the Father

And perpetual light be to the Son.

Glowing beauty be to the Spirit

That proceeds from them.


--Hymn for the Feast of St. Augustine of Canterbury (May 26), Old English (attributed to Wulfstan), early 11th c.
