Outreach – Up Next

Darby Mission is asking for equipment to help kids become and stay fit. Jump ropes, tennis balls and rackets, Frisbees or any type of soccer ball, football or basketball would be helpful!

Thank you once again for your generous donations for the Mission food pantry! And a special thanks to Peter Patton for his assistance in loading the provisions…in the pouring rain no less!!

The next Darby Food giveaway is scheduled for June 30th. The focus will be on picnic/cookout items since July 4th will be a few days later. Ketchup and Mayonnaise supplies are especially low!

Darby Dinners will be restarting this summer with special precautions in place. The tentative date for the first one is July 13th and CHA has been invited to host. We’re thinking barbecue – in keeping with the summer season. Watch this space for more details in the next few weeks!


Happy Friday everyone! Due to the unsettled weather today, happy hour on the lawn is being postponed.  The new date will be noted in a future CHA communication. Have a wonderful weekend!  ~~Suzanne

As some restrictions have been lifted, we are now allowed to gather for fellowship following the 10 AM Sunday service. A list has been been posted outside of the church office with summer dates. We will need volunteers to sign up to provide a cold beverage out on the lawn. At this time, no cookies or snacks are necessary, given the current restrictions in place.

There is now a form on our website that you can use

Between now and June 27th, you may bring your old flags and leave them in the designated container in front of the church to be included in a flag burning ceremony held by Jim Jervis on Monday, June 28, at the Lulu Shrine in Plymouth Meeting. This ceremony will include the flag that flew over St. Faith’s for many years.

Masks and appropriate distancing will continue to be observed. We look forward to seeing you back at church if you feel comfortable there. Services will also continue to be livestreamed on our YouTube Channel. Be sure to hit the SUBSCRIBE button!
During this time, the rector and trained Eucharistic ministers may visit others to bring them the Eucharist. Meeting in outdoor spaces of homes will be preferred. Contact Fr. James if you would like to schedule a visit. 

You can still mail pledge contributions to the church at this time.  The mail is checked regularly.  You can also securely give online.  Go to and click on the “Give” button on the top right hand corner of the webpage.
