A Father's Day Prayer
God our Father, in your wisdom and love you made all things.
Bless those fathers, who have taken upon themselves the responsibility of parenting.
Bless those who have lost a spouse to death or divorce who are parenting their children alone.
Strengthen all fathers by your love and grace that they may become the loving, caring persons they are meant to be.|
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen

ARE YOU RECEIVING OUR PARISH E-MAILS?

From time to time someone tells us they are not getting our parish emails. We send out our Sunday bulletins insert as an e-mail, usually on Thursday, before the Sunday service. We also have times when we need to alert people of changes in services for weather issues, or announce the passing of a parishioner and upcoming services. IF YOU ARE NOW NOT receiving a weekly parish email, please email Donna at the office atparishadmin@standrewsleonardtown.org so that we can include you on our email list.

Dee McRae is the editor and administrator of the parish newsletter, Loaves and Fishes, which usually comes out monthly. If you are not receiving the church newsletter and would like to, please email Dee at deemacrae@mac.com.

FEEDING THE HUNGRY AT THREE OAKS

As you may know, churches are providing meals for the Three Oaks Center. Perhaps you have done this in the past. Here is an opportunity to take part in this ministry.

Church of the Ascension is responsible for alternate Mondays. At the moment there are a few openings in their schedule, one of which can be yours. 

If you want one of these days or if you want more information, you can contact kerrithompson.frank@leonardtowngrants.com.  Here’s how it works: on your Monday morning—or the Sunday evening before, if Monday morning is inconvenient—drop off groceries for Monday evening’s dinner. This would be meat, one or two vegetables and/or fruit for a gracious meal feeding about twenty people. The folks at Three Oaks will prepare the meal and tend to cleaning up.
