We thoroughly enjoyed our guest presenter, Awilda Verdejo at our last meeting. Awilda spoke of her Pilgrimage from France to Santiago. She walked over 500 miles and had so many experiences. Many of them were spiritual. We were totally spellbound listening to Awilda’s story. She should write a book.
Saint Agnes has already begun to receive donations for the sock, glove and hat drive being held for Union Gospel Mission. The drive begins now through the second week in November. We will have a container marked Union Gospel Mission. Union Gospel Mission was so grateful for the food and clothing Saint Agnes delivered the night of the Harvest Dinner. Union Gospel Mission started serving soup to thousands of homeless and unemployed people during the Great Depression. Many, many years later, they are still caring for their neighbors — but in many more ways than ever!
Raffle tickets will go on sale this coming Sunday, for the beautiful, homemade quilt by Arlene Crader. The drawing will be held at Lessons and Carols, Sunday, December 15 during the Wassail hour. Every year Arlene makes a quilt for the Saint Agnes Raffle. Proceeds go towards our Outreach Program.
The Canterbury Faire Holiday Bazaar on November 2 is quickly approaching. October 27 after service, we are in need of assistance for setting up in the lower level. We also need volunteers for cleanup/breakdown after the Faire closes on November 2. Time would be about 4pm. Please advise Ann Patrice or Lu. If you have an urge to bake, the Faire is always in need of homemade cookies. They will be sold in the coffee bar and in our café. Drop them by any time after 10am on Friday, November 1. All proceeds go to the Saint Agnes Outreach Program.
Our next Saint Agnes meeting will be Friday, November 8th at 10am. Guest speaker will be from Hopelink.
Thank you, Lu Gardiner. President
