Beloved in Christ,
 
Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ!

I hope this finds everyone doing well as we are heading slowly but surely to a highlight of our year, the annual parish picnic. A sign-up sheet for the picnic should be available on the bulletin board downstairs from this coming Sunday (21st).  The picnic is set for September 18 at Fort Hunt Park (the same park as last year and the same picnic space). By then, our new rector, Fr. Roddy, should be on hand to join in this fun annual event with us! Please note that there will be just two services on Sept. 18: 7:45 and 10 a.m.
 
The Women’s Group will meet this Saturday (August 20) from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. to continue their study of Lord, I Want to Know You by Kay Arthur. Childcare will be provided with an RSVP to Mrs. Charity Hakpon. You are NOT required to bring breakfast items.  The Men have cancelled their meeting for the month of August. They will meet again the third Saturday in September, the 17th, at 8:30 a.m. The lesson instructor/leader will be Bill Russell. The men have adopted a new format for their meetings: from month to month they will alternate discussion leaders as well as the scripture passages or (e.g.) apposite scriptural book that each leader chooses. They need “volunteers” for October and November, and if there are no takers, individuals will be “volunteered” by the group! Be forewarned!

The annual DMAS Pre-Advent Retreat will be held November 11-12 at St. Alban’s Parish in Richmond, VA. More detailed information will be distributed at a later date.  Please mark your calendars for this event.
 
Peace and blessings to you All.
 
 Fr. Thierry
