A look ahead

The Eighth Sunday after Trinity, 22 July 2018:

The Rt. Rev. William C. Wiygul, retired, will celebrate communion.  The Rev. Mr. Shannon L. Clark, deacon in charge, is attending St. Joseph of Arimathea, the seminary of the Province of Christ the King.

The collect: O, God, whose never-failing providence ordereth all things both in heaven and earth; We humbly beseech thee to put away from us all hurtful things, and to give us those things which are profitable for us; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The lessons:  The epistle of St. Paul to the Christians at Rome, beginning at the 12th verse of the 8th chapter; the gospel according to St. Matthew, beginning at the 15th verse of the 7th chapter. 

29 July 2018:  We will collect donations for the Shelby Emergency Assistance Food Pantry, as we do on the fifth Sunday of any month.  All non-perishable food items are acceptable, however, staples such as flour, salt, sugar, and vegetable (or other cooking) oil are less commonly donated but much needed.

5 August 2018:  Monthly pot-luck luncheon, following the service; in the Parish Hall.  Visitors welcome.

12 August 2018:  The vestry is scheduled to meet following the service; in the library of the Parish Hall.

Celebrating 35 years of faithfulness

On 14 October 2018, we will hold a special celebration marking the 35th anniversary of the Church of the Holy Comforter, with a service in the church and a luncheon afterward in the Parish Hall.  Friends, former members and visitors are all invited to share this joyful occasion with us.  Further details will be posted closer to the date.
