We had a busy December and spread the love of God to so many in our community! The members of St. Andrew’s lovingly prepared Christmas dinner for the men at the Atkinson’s shelter, purchased and wrapped gifts for 25 young children in Coatesville through the Angel Tree Christmas – prison ministry and the Coatesville Women’s Shelter (CYWA), and provided all the fixings for a delicious dinner for 10 families at Good Samaritan Services (previously affiliated with Bridge of Hope). Your generosity and care for those around us fills my heart with gratitude!
In January, the Outreach committee will meet to plan our activities for the year and we would love new ideas for how we can continue to extend our reach into the community. Watch the weekly announcements for the meeting date and time. One of our on-going ministries is providing support to our companion diocese in Guatemala. Please read Martha’s wonderful article on how our relationship began and has evolved over time.
Wishing you and those you love a blessed New Year!
