Thanks to all who have generously given to the audio-visual upgrades in the church! In preparation for the day when we are finally able to return to 701 Washington Street, we are making plans to update the sound system and install video/livestreaming capabilities. We have raised about 2/3 of the $20,000 needed. If you can help make this a reality, make your contribution by check or PayPal and indicate that it is for “AV upgrades.”
Families with children: We have some new coloring sheets to go along with the Sunday lessons. Find them on the resources site.
Regional Ministry Network call on Thursday, July 30 at 6 p.m., featuring Dr. Dan Hale, Special Advisor to the President of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Baltimore, MD. Dr. Hale will take a personal and professional look at mental health topics, and offer insight for those who “suffer from depression themselves, deal with it as health professionals or faith leaders, live with others who have it, or know others who do,” helping us to become “well informed, inspired to seek help, engage in self-care, remain hopeful, and reach out to those who have suffered in the shadows for so long from this crippling illness.” It is not necessary to register for these gatherings. ALL members are encouraged to attend by Region; if you are unable to attend the call for your Region, please email John King (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the Zoom info for another meeting. If you need the Zoom connection information for this meeting, please contact the church office.
Don’t forget to continue your pledging and contributions as summer rolls on! You may do so via PayPal or in person or by bank check mailed to 701 Washington Street.
Are you shut-in or health compromised? If you are unable, for whatever reason, to get out for groceries or other needed supplies, we have people who would be willing to add your items to their shopping. Contact the parish office if this is something you need: 201-792-3563 or email@example.com
Meeting Community Needs:
Hoboken Shelter: Current needs are: CASH donations, prepared sandwiches, latex gloves, bleach, breakfast cereal, coffee, and individual packets of sugar, salt, and pepper. There is also an Amazon wish list so that your items can be delivered directly to the shelter at 300 Bloomfield Street.
The Jubilee Center: The Jubilee Center is planning a shortened and revised summer camp. The best way to help is with a financial contribution.
In Jesus’s Name Charities: There is always a shortage of emergency food supplies. You may shop online for exactly what is most needed or you may send a check to them at 411 Clinton Street, Hoboken. Since the grounds of Our Lady of Grace are closed, there is currently no in-person drop-off.
Lunchtime Ministry at SMT: Many of the same people who utilize shelter services also come to St. Matthew Trinity’s Lunchtime Ministry, now providing take-away lunches and coffee. Open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – noon, they are in need of ready-made sandwiches, pop-top canned soups, granola bars, and boxed juices. Monetary contributions may be made here, noting Lunchtime Ministry.
DJ’s Free Market is a mobile pantry that delivers goods from you to those who need it. You may read their most recent newsletter here and sign up to receive future newsletters here. Contact Audrey Truschke if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
And for All Saints:
You can affirm the unity and vitality of the Church in this time of crisis:
- If you are a pledger (or a regular non-pledge giver), and you are in the habit of making gifts during services, you can make those contributions electronically here or by mail.
- If the current economic disruption threatens your income or livelihood, be assured that your pledge is not a debt, and that generosity can only be measured in terms of your personal circumstances. A decreased pledge does not necessarily equal decreased generosity.
- If you are in a position to increase your pledge, doing so in a time of crisis is a powerful sign of the mutual care to which all members of the Church are called.
- If All Saints is your church, and you have not made a 2020 pledge, please contact the church office for a pledge form. Especially in difficult times, your financial commitment to the mission of the Church is a sacramental sign that we are all in this together. Contact the church office (email@example.com)
with any questions about pledging or giving (or anything else).
