WELCOME TO WORSHIP AT CALVARY CHURCH, STONINGTON. We invite you to participate in all parts of our service, including the Holy Communion. We also invite you to explore the many ways you might become involved in the life of Calvary – we would love to have you join with us in serving God and growing in faith.
PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS that our summer schedule with services at 8 & 9:30 a.m. will continue through Labor Day weekend – this year, Sept. 6. We will resume our schedule with services at 8 & 10 on the Sunday following Labor Day, Sept. 13.
There will be NO COFFEE HOUR THIS WEEK.
It’s that wonderful time of year again when the Stonington community comes together to support the COMO by selling a variety of things at the VILLAGE FAIR, with the profits going to the COMO. Calvary’s ECW has conducted a bake sale for the last 30+ years at the Village Fair with generous donations from our parish family. We are asking that you bring baked goods to the kitchen of the Parish Hall on Friday, August 1, or to the bake table at 76 Water Street on Saturday, August 2nd, by 10 a.m. Our customers love cookies, cakes, pies, and cupcakes. I hope you’ll be able to help us again this year. Any questions, contact Carole Barnard at 860-535-9480, or at email@example.com. Thank you.
Please note that Parish Secretary, Phyllis Nowakowski, will be away from the office from July 14 through July 27, returning on July 28. A volunteer will retrieve messages once each day from the answering machine. In case of a pastoral emergency, please phone the Rector at 860-535-1181, ext. 14, or at 203-464-4796, or the Sr. Warden, Belinda de Kay, at 860-908-6086.
THE PAWCATUCK NEIGHBORHOOD CENTER’S EMERGENCY FOOD PANTRY is most in need of tuna, Macaroni & Cheese, instant mashed potatoes, baked beans, clam chowder, and bags of apples and oranges are always appreciated. Many thanks for all you do. Vicki Anderson - 860-599-3285 x14 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOMELESS HOSPITALITY CENTER: We haven’t forgotten the Homeless! Recently we’ve received 20-30 more blankets and even some sheets and towels! Even with warm weather, blankets or sleeping bags are still needed by the Homeless Hospitality Center! If you have no home, a covering when sleeping outside is always appreciated! Drop your donations in the church or church office any time, and they will be delivered to the Center. If you have any questions, contact Phyllis in the office at 860-535-1181 or at email@example.com. Thank you for helping to keep someone warm and comfortable.
