Sunday Food Collection

Pre-orders of 100th Anniversary Book are Now Being Taken
Over the past twelve months the History Team has researched the history of St. Andrew’s, gathering information from parishioners, church archives and past history books. Many church members past and present have contributed with articles and photographs. This history book has 330 pages with full-color photographs, many discovered through the process. It is a bound book with a heavy weight paper cover. The History Team hopes this will become a family treasure that will be enjoyed for the next 100 years. Books are being sold by pre-order only. The cost is $65 and must be prepaid. The deadline to order is January 30. Click here for order form.

Should a Lenten Food Tradition Continue?
For many years it has been our Wednesday tradition during Lent to have a breakfast following the 7:30 AM Lenten Eucharist service and some type of supper (salad-soup-bread or covered dish) prior to our Lenten evening programs.   The fellowship we share at both meals each Wednesday is one of the highlights of the day.  In recent number years, it has tended to be the same groups or individuals who were willing to or who were “gently coerced” into preparing and serving the meals.  Finding enough volunteers has been a challenge. Rather than asking the staff to take on the task of rounding up volunteers, we decided to put out a call to the whole parish. Would you be willing to prepare a breakfast or a supper for a Lenten Wednesday?  We need six breakfasts (for 10-12 people) and five suppers (for about 60 people).  If we have enough volunteers step forward to help with food, we will serve breakfast and supper. Whether or not food is served, there will be a 7:30 AM Eucharist for the six Wednesday mornings in Lent and a Lenten series for the five Wednesday evenings in Lent after Ash Wednesday. If you would like to host a Lenten breakfast or supper, please let Bill Wilds know (saec.bill19@verizon.net or 595-0371) on or before February 12.

Consecration of Our New Bishop
The Rev. Susan B. Haynes will be consecrated as the Eleventh Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia on Saturday, February 1, 2020, at St. Bede’s Catholic Church in Williamsburg.  With people coming from all over our diocese, and probably others, parking is going to be limited.  If you are planning to attend the service and you know of others also who want attend, consider offering to carpool.
