NEW: PROPERTY MAINTENANCE FUND Beginning this month, our monthly Property Maintenance Fund Collections will be targeted towards specific needs. As anounced at the Semi-Annual Meeting we have two pressing projects at the parish Rectory: Replacing the Front Door and sidelights (Original Doors from the 1890's) and the Garage overhead doors. The total cost is approximately $6000. ($4000 for Front Door and $2000 for the garage doors). Please keep this in mind when making your monthly property maintenance fund donation. Additional donations of any amount will gratefully be accepted. We are most grateful to our parishioners for all their efforts in maintaining and improving our Church properties over the years. How blessed we are to have such a beautiful parish complex which is truly our little slice of Paradise, the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
PARISH SURVEY - All parishioners have received a copy of our parish survey. As of this writing only 6 people have returned the form. Perhaps this seems like a daunting task as the form is several pages long. Feel free to fill out those areas that are applicable or for which you feel strongly about. It is to be completed by all parishioners, including youth. Please place the completed forms in the metal collection box on the candle desk or mail them into the Church by Aug 15, 2018.
ADULT EDUCATION DISCUSSION - Our Weekly Scripture Study Class has resumed and takes place on Wednesday Evenings at 7:00 pm It is preceeded by Daily Vespers.

COMMUNITY SUPPER - Our next meal will be Monday Aug 13th at The Lord's Kitchen, Christ Church, Stratford, CT. Please see Mary or Eve if you wish to make brownies for dessert and/or help.
CHURCH HALL CHAIR REPLACEMENT - THANK YOU PARISHIONERS! We have received sufficient pledges to purchase new chairs for the Church hall. The molded plastic chairs received the most votes, so we will be going with that. Please see Tom Decerbo to fulfill your pledge and make payment. You may also place your payment in an envelope clearly marked with your Name and Chair Pledge Payment and put it in the collection basket or in the metal donation box on the candle desk. Once we have received all the money pledged, they will be purchased. While we be using many of the existing chairs for our church picnics, a number of these chairs will be available for purchase at a suggested price of $5.00. If anyone is interested in purchasing chairs, please see Tom Decerbo.
CHURCH DUES - As a reminder Church dues are $75.00 per adult member. If you have not already paid your annual dues, please do so as soon as possible. As always if you are experiencing a financial hardship please speak to Fr. Peter so that they can be waived if necessary.
