Work Party for St. John’s Lakeport, Thursday May 5th

Last December, a group of volunteers from St. Luke’s and Grace Church went to St. John’s in Lakeport to provide support for their ministry to victims of the Valley fires. Their food pantry and thrift shop continue to serve the community and would welcome our support. In addition to providing hands to help, they have asked for the following for their thrift store:

• Spring and Summer clothing and shoes for children, women and men
• Housewares
• Food for the pantry*: canned veggies, fruit, soups and spaghetti sauce, rice, boxed milk and cereal.

If you would like to join our caravan to St. John’s and help provide food for a communal lunch on Thursday, May 5th, please contact Deacon Susan Napoliello (susannapoliello@gmail.com or 415-734-1355). We will leave Calistoga at 9:00 a.m. and return by 4:00 p.m.

*Susan will buy the food for the pantry at Costco. If you would like to donate money for the food, please let her know.

Welcoming those in Recovery

We are often blessed in our Sunday worship by the attendance of men and women who are actively engaged in their recovery.   Our goal is to offer help  to the addicted and those who love them in connecting with spiritual resources to aid in their finding lasting recovery.

The Episcopal Church has long played a leadership role in helping those affected by addiction.  AA was started by these Episcopalians, Bill W, Dr. Bob, and Sam Shoemaker. 

 

O blessed, Lord, you ministered to all who come to you:  Look with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost their health and freedom.  Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy; remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery; and to those who care for them give patient understanding and persevering love.  Amen.
