Please plan to join us on Sunday, May1st at 9:30am for a discussion about the future of Sunday School at Church of the Holy Apostles. We want to hear from you about the ways in which we can best serve you and your children with our Children’s Education Ministry. Options include: Sunday School held after the 9am Family Service; a return to Sunday School during the 10am service; or staying with the current 9am Family service under the tent. We’d love to hear any other ideas you might have.

We want to make volunteering at Church of the Holy Apostles as easy as possible. We have created a place to find all our volunteer openings in one place:

There you can sign up for service areas such as Chalice Bearer/Acolyte, Coffee Hour, Fellowship Events, Greeters, Livestream, Outreach Events, and Readers/Intercessors, or special volunteer opportunities such as the Altar of Repose. Just choose the tab for the ministry of your choice. Click on over and check it out! Some pages are still being set up with all their slots, so check back often. Questions? Click on the email link at the top of any signup page to contact the coordinator for that area of service.

We are especially in need of folks to assist with Coffee Hour and to be Greeters! If you have questions about these positions, contact Judy Jervis (coffee hour) or Linda Day (greeters).

Intercession brings before God the needs of others (BCP p.857)
The Parish Prayer list is included in the monthly newsletter that is sent through the mail. Additional copies are also available on the table in the Narthex. To add your prayer needs to the list, you can contact Fr. JamesNancy Haas, or use the form on our website.

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.

John & Linda Day invite you to guess where they are in their travels!
Remember to pick up your own Holy Apostles magnet from the narthex or coffee hour table and take it wherever you find yourself.
