The bloodmobile from the Blood Connection will be parked near the Parish and Community Life Center. We hope that everyone in the parish, who is able to do so, will consider being a part of the drive. Keep in mind that the minimum donor age is 16 with parental consent. The Advent will be awarded $20 per unit. These funds will benefit the 2020 Youth Pilgrimage to Nova Scotia. To sign up, please contact Cathy McCabe. Remember to bring your photo ID or blood donor card.


Gleaners Sunday School Class meets at 9am in the Library Conference Room in Satterlee Hall. Agnes Martin will facilitate our discussion on today’s Lectionary readings.
Christian Formation Recognition at 10:15am: We will thank all teachers, leaders, and mentors for their service this year.
Bishop Charles Duvall’s Visit and Adult Confirmation, Reception, and Reaffirmation followed by our Parish Picnic: Following the 10:15am service we will enjoy a picnic on the lawn including Gail’s fried chicken and all the fixins! Activities for children will keep us entertained while we fellowship and celebrate another amazing program year at the Advent. Weather permitting, we will be enjoying our lunch in the church yard.
Youth Pilgrims to Sell Blueberry Grunt at the Picnic: Blueberry Grunt is the unofficial dessert of Nova Scotia - the destination of the 2020 Youth Pilgrimage. The name comes from the sound the blueberries make while being cooked. It is similar to a cobbler. The pilgrims will be selling grunt for $3 or a donation. The proceeds will be used to offset the trip’s expenses.
