This Week at St. John’s Oct. 25 to Nov. 1, 2015

This week at SJB Oct 25, 2015

Thanks to Sheila and Tom Winslow, our COFFEE HOUR hosts Sunday. If you wish to participate in this ministry, please use the sign-up sheet in the Narthex.

ALL SAINTS’ SUNDAY –November 1, we celebrate our baptismal life in Christ, and also remember those who have gone before us. Once again, the congregation is invited to bring photos or other mementos of dearly departed loved ones, to place on the altar during our morning masses. This provides a wonderful reminder of that “great cloud of witnesses,” which surround us, and join their voices to ours with all the company of heaven

WILLIAM TEMPLE HOUSE: We are collecting food and hygiene products throughout the year for distribution by Emergency Social Services at William Temple House. A collection bin is in the Narthex on Sundays and in the hallway on weekdays. List of “most-needed items” is available on the Information Table. Hygiene items are always on the short list, especially toothbrushes and toilet paper.

SUNDAY MORNING WE WELCOME new members to St. John’s who will be introduced by different parishioners.

OES DORM STUDENT care ministry expands connections and support to students living on campus. In coordination with the Head of Residential Life, St. John’s has a small team of parishioners assembling care packages for the dormies. The next care packages are halloween treats. Contribute donations of halloween candy this week. Ministry Team:
Mark&Ann FitzMaurice, Laura Moran, Tom&Sheila Winslow

OCTOBER SERVICE DAY at OES – a school day spent in service in the greater Portland community – was a grand success. Planning for Winterim week, Science Day and Mt. Hood Climb Service Day are underway. In support of OES Service Learning, OES needs a volunteer to help with a short-term filing project. If you are interested, contact Mtr. Heather+.
