SENIOR LUNCH – ELDER ATTORNEY SPEAKER
Our next senior lunch will be held this Thursday, October 25 at Noon. As always we will start with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist followed by lunch in the Parish Hall. Our speaker will be Attorney Laura Krohn, who specializes in helping seniors plan for tomorrow in regards to Social Security and Medicare issues that arise with catastrophic and long term health care needs. She assists her clients with ways to protect assets against the potential costs of a long term catastrophic illness. The issues Attorney Krohn will be discussing are issues we all must plan for in advance in order to protect ourselves from the uncertainty of the future.

DOES ANYONE HAVE A VAN?
The Community Market needs someone with a van to pick up 55 turkeys from Belmonts on Sunday morning, November 18 and to distribute them from the van during our special Thanksgiving Market from 1:00 to 3:00 that day. Contact Becky Johnson, johnsRN@yahoo.com, or Sue Tassone, firstname.lastname@example.org, if interested or have questions.
Father Craig leads a series of discussions based on Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s call for the church to Journey in the Way of Love. This series will look at the seven areas the Presiding Bishop has called us to explore, with the goal for each of us to develop our own rule of life.
EVERYONE’S GOTTA EAT (EGE)
Thank you to all of the parishioners who have been supporting this fundraiser for the Community Market at St. Peter’s by-the-Sea. To date we have earned $5,331 ($1,144 this year to date). We have recently replenished our supply of gift cards just in time for the holidays. Please buy grocery cards (Stop & Shop, Shaws, Dave’s, Belmont) to do your Thanksgiving shopping. We also have gift cards that make great stocking stuffers – Dunkin Donuts, Itunes, Starbucks, Panera Bread to name a few. Gift cards for Macy’s, Kohl’s, Marshalls, Bed & Bath make nice Christmas presents or you can buy them for yourself to do your holiday shopping. This is how it works – the market gets an average of $5 for every $100 bought by you. Cards will be for sale after the 8:00 and 10:15 services. Thanks again for your continued support.
DO YOU OR A FAMILY MEMBER NEED
A HOSPITAL OR HOME VISIT?
If you, or someone in your Rhode Island family, is ill or hospitalized and would like a visit from Fr. Craig or a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, please call the Church office. As much as we like to think we know everything, sometimes we need you to let us know. So please call us if you would like a hospital or home visit.
We love having all ages young and old worshiping with us. For our youngest worshippers we know attending an hour long service can be demanding. To help with this, we have set up a soft corner in the parish hall to allow those who need a break from the service to toddle around, play, etc. while the service is in progress. We have also provided a speaker so parents are able to stay tuned to the service until their child is ready to rejoin the congregation.
ALTAR FLOWERS OR SANCTUARY LAMP
Please remember that there is a sign-up sheet (on the bulletin board across from the kitchen) to request dedicating altar flowers or the sanctuary lamp candle in memory or thanksgiving. We have several Sundays available. Sign up early to get a particular Sunday of importance; maybe to remember a birthday or the anniversary of a loved one’s passing.
WEDNESDAY BIBLE STUDY
The Wednesday Noon Bible Study has resumed with Father Craig. Anyone interested in developing a more in depth understanding of the Sunday readings are welcome to bring a bag lunch and join the discussion.
Remember that Morning Prayer is being said Tuesday-Thursday at 9:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome.
