Children and Youth

† We are happy to welcome our new Nursery Care Provider, Rebecca Cossel! Rebecca comes to us with over 15 years in a variety of childcare settings.

† Holy Apostles is working toward establishing a flourishing children’s choir program.  Please look for a children’s choir questionnaire on the “connect” table across from the Rector’s office.

† 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

† Connect by Night is winding down. We are very grateful to everyone who has helped in so many ways to make this a successful outreach program. A special thanks to Joe Zorc who stepped in to coordinate the program, and the Vestry and property committee who did a lot of behind the scenes work to make it happen,

† After this service, please help us move some books and other furniture to make room for our guests.

Darby Mission

† We are hosting a meal on Tuesday, Oct. 2nd at 5:00 p.m. , and a cook-out on Tuesday, July 31st for the students and families of summer camp.  For more info see the “Darby Mission Outreach” box

Parish Life

† James+ will be visiting family July 31 – August 10. He will still be available by phone and email. Sunday August 5, the Rev. Doris Rajagopal will be  our celebrant and preacher. There will be no morning prayer or  mid-week Eucharist while  James+ is gone.

† September 1 – Red Cross Blood Drive in Parish Hall – 9:00AM-2:00PM

† 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.

† 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

† Online church calendar: Stay connected with what is happening in your church. Visit the online calendar at http://www.calendarwiz.com/holyapostlespa . All events happening at the church need to be added to this calendar to avoid conflicts with the use of our facilities. Email the church office to schedule events.

Education

† A weekly Bible study that will meet during the day is in the works.  There is also the possibility of combining this with a regular fellowship time for those of us who are retired or do not work fulltime during the week.  If you are interested, please let Nancy Haas, or Fr. James know.

Diocesan Events

† Ladies Tea Party: Join women from all over the diocese for a fun event at St. David’s Episcopal Church, Wayne on Saturday, September 15th 1 p.m.—3 p.m. Tickets are $10 and proceeds go to Thistle farms, a ministry that helps women who are human trafficking, prostitution and addiction survivors.
