Dear Jason,

With only 12 days until General Convention, we still need volunteers to offer hospitality to the bishops, deputies and support staff who will attend General Convention in person at the Baltimore Convention Center July 8-11. Nearly 400 volunteer shifts have yet to be filled and we need your help! There are a variety of volunteer roles available starting from July 7 which include staffing the registration desks to logistical support during the legislative sessions. We especially need volunteers in public safety/community awareness to help us create a welcoming and safe environment for our guests. This is a great way to see the governance of The Episcopal Church in action and meet people from across the church. Whether you have a few hours to spare or can be there for all five days, we need you! Click here to register and sign up for a volunteer shift.

Thank you for welcoming our guests and helping to offer the hospitality that Maryland is known for.

The Right Rev. Eugene Taylor Sutton
Bishop of Maryland




Worship Sunday - 26 June 2022

Dear Brothers and Sisters of St. Andrew's,

 

Please join us at 10:00 am this Sunday as our former Rector Bishop Carl Wright preaches and officiates the service. Please note that there will not be an 8:00 service on Sunday the 26th of June.

Fr. Jason will be on sabbatical from noon on Sunday to noon on August 7th, and during this time he will not be able to check email, phone or text. While he is away Fr. Ron is available for pastoral needs; Fr. Dion Thompson of St. Anne's, Annapolis is backup for Fr. Ron in case he is unavailable. You may find their contact information below.

As COVID numbers continue to rise we are encouraging the wearing of masks when we gather indoors, though they remain optional. We have resumed sharing the Wine at Communion. Please note our Bishops have made it clear that self-intinction will not be permitted; those preferring to receive by intinction should leave the bread on their palm for the Chalicist to administer. We have also resumed greeting one another at the peace in whatever manner is mutually comfortable. Please do be sensitive to the concerns of those who prefer less or no physical contact.

The 10:00 service is streamed via our Facebook page, our YouTube channel and our website. A copy of the bulletin for the service is attached.

On the third Sunday of each month we take up a special offering to address needs in our community. Our June Healing Sunday offering will be sent to NCEON.

The Rector's Discretionary Fund enables the Priest to work on the church's behalf to care for those in need in our community, and to support the needs of worthy ministries, gifts may be made to this fund either electronically or by checks made out to St. Andrew's with Rector's Discretionary Fund on the memo line. Gifts are especially useful 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 the Priest.

 

 

Peace be with you!
