Holding Space for Hope:
A Liturgy of Hope and Healing for [extra]Ordinary Time
The St. Phoebe School for Deacons and our partners in the Dioceses of Virginia and Southwestern Virginia have been reaching out to listen to the voices of people who have too often been marginalized and silenced because of age, race, sexual orientation, gender expression, poverty and other dividing lines in this world in which we live. Our deep listening to the stories of hope told by this diverse array of God's people affirms that where hope is present, God is revealed.
 
Join us to hear these stories and images of hope as we pray together on Saturday April 19 at 4:00 p.m. Gather here on our Facebook page to view the Livestream Liturgy or access via the St. Phoebe School Virtual Chapel launching at 4:00 p.m. and available afterwards for continued sharing: https://virtual-chapel.com/holding-space-for-hope/

Outreach Ministries
 
CARITAS - More Kroger cards to help support the Ladies in shelter.
 
Laundry kits coming soon!
CARITAS asked for another round of personal care kits and Kroger cards. The care kits were delivered earlier this week. The cards will be followed by the much appreciated laundry kits.
 
Another way in which ministry continues!
Food Pantry service continues outside 
on 2nd and 4th Saturdays!
 
We distribute bags, lunches, and fresh fruit at the south entry to those who come.  
If you have donation for the pantry, contact Malinda Collier, dre@stmarksrva.org to arrange a drop off.
 
We need sandwich makers for 4th Saturdays! It is pretty easy, make 36 hearty sandwiches, include a few goodies like cookies or chips - we've got some bags already started and always have fresh fruit and water. This is a great family activity! Thanks to Ed Street and Jackie Bitler for packing for this Saturday, August 22
 
Contact Ed Street if you can help pack bags, edstreetva@gmail.com
 
In-person 12-Step meetings are suspended until further notice from the Governor about group meeting sizes. We have helped the group to set up a Zoom meeting account. Check the AA website for on-line meeting links.
