Remembering Charlotte Benson:

  Our longtime faithful parishioner Charlotte Benson died a little over a year ago in August 2018.

After her memorial service, several of us gathered at Nonesuch River Brewery to share Charlotte thoughts and raise a glass in her memory.  In the spirit of remembrance, some of us will gather again this Sunday, September 29 at 11:45 at the same brewery (Rte 114), to share snacks, stories—Charlotte-related or otherwise!  Anyone is welcome to join us.  FMI see Nancy Nickerson.

Please join us for Dinner and Sing-a-Long on Friday, October 11th at 5:30 at the Spurwink Country Kitchen.  Please RSVP by Wednesday, October 9, to Nancy Agan 883-1561 or nancyagan@gmail.com

OUTREACH

St. Elizabeth’s Essentials Pantry

The weather is cooling down and St. Elizabeth’s is starting to collect jackets and coats of all sizes to give to the needy.  If you have any that you are no longer using, please consider donating them to this cause.  They can be left at St. Nick’s and we will get them to the Pantry.

Our next scheduled date for volunteering at the Pantry is Tuesday, October 8th  from 9:00 to 11:00.  Please see Terry Foster if you would like to participate in this ministry.
