New Christmas Cards Needed: Elder Reggie spreads hope and care within the prison where he works. We asked him if he had a wish list on ways for people to help him with his ministry and he said, "Yes!" He said he needs new Christmas cards to give to the inmates so they could send them to their families. Salvation Army used to give him cards but they can no longer do so. We told him we could do that. So the Christmas Card Project was launched. Our goal is to obtain 1,000 new cards to donate to the inmates. Thankfully, all of the Episcopal churches on the island are working together on this project. Please donate new cards and drop them off at the back of the church anytime. We will mail the cards to Elder Reggie the first of November. We need to have the cards by the end of October because it takes at least three weeks for the prison to process the package. Thank you for your help and donation!

Gracious God, we offer thanks for our parish, for your inspiration, and for the spirit of ministry which is our heritage. We acknowledge your call to continue serving each other and the people in our community through open hearts and open doors. Guide us all, especially our Capital Campaign and Design & Construction Committees and Vestry, as we seek funding and plan expansion of the facilities, including accessibility for all at St. John. Inspire us to share faithfully the love that you have revealed to us through the ministry and sacrifice of your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
