† Please note that we are using the EOW version of the Nicene Creed on alternating Sundays.
Children and Youth
† Holy Apostles is working toward establishing a flourishing children’s choir program. Please look for a children’s choir questionnaire in today’s service leaflet.
† Confirmation Class will continue during the summer months on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 5PM, with the exception of August 12. Class on that day is cancelled.
† Sunday School classes are not held over the summer months and will resume in September.
† Nursery Childcare is available during the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service for children ages 3 and younger in the Godly Play Room.
† The Sunday School is organizing a collection as a welcome for the Connect by Night shelter. Please bring toiletries or socks and leave them in the box in the hallway outside the parish office.
Outreach and Service
† Connect by Night: This program, in which area churches provide a sleep space for those in need, will be returning to Holy Apostles in July. Chris Costello will be stepping down from leading the program for this summer. If anyone is interested in helping to run the program, there are several leadership roles, including: program leader (organizes the schedule, serves as a contact with the program), weekly captain (shops and maintains lunch-making supplies for one week). Everyone has the opportunity to participate by taking a night to make lunches and greet our guests. The schedule for that will be available starting this Sunday in Church. Please contact Joe Zorc if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org).
† Darby Mission: The schedule for hosting Darby meals has been very well subscribed, and our next turn will be on Tuesday, October 2nd at 5pm. Please put that date on your calendar. Reverend Doris also runs a camp for the children during the summer. We provided a lunch cookout for them last year and are targeting Tuesday, July 31st during the day as a time for that. If you are available and interested in participating at Darby that day, please contact Joe Zorc.
† Bishop Gutierrez will visit CHA on Sunday, December 9th for Confirmations, Receptions, and Reaffirmations. If you are interested in any of those rites, or would just like to know more talk to Fr. James.
† Unless otherwise designated, this mornings plate offering will be given to our companion diocese in Guatemala for volcano disaster relief (see the bishop’s letter for more details).
† If you visit the church during the week (and we hope you do!), please use the red double doors nearest the church offices. Please take special care to lock doors behind you, and ensure that they latch properly. Doors that are not locked or completely shut are a very serious safety concern for Little Friends Daycare. Thank you
† RECYCLING! We now have a recycling bin (clearly marked as such) located next to the large trash receptacle outside the kitchen door. All recyclable paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum should be placed in this bin rather than the trash.
† Upcoming Events: Save These Dates!
Sunday, June 24th………….…..…….CHA goes to the Flea Market
Friday, June 29th………………….6PM Evening Prayer followed by Happy Hour at 6:30
† On Sunday, June 24th, Holy Apostles will have tables at the Upper Darby Flea Market, held at Upper Darby High School. All donations are welcome! We are especially looking for furniture, small working appliance, hand and garden tools, bakeware, new linens and blankets, building toys, children’s books, sports equipment, jewelry, holiday décor, and vinyl records. There is a big box in the church hallway for donations, so please keep this project in mind as you are doing your spring cleaning.
