Mission and Outreach:
We just completed a collection of Walmart and grocery cards for our greatly delayed Lenten project. Five hundred dollars were donated and there are still funds coming in. Our President and Vietnam war vet, Dan Dono, has coordinated bringing donations to the organization that provides care and outreach to vets in need and their families.
We completed our Christmas offering: 10 adult women's hats, 6 pairs of adult glove, along with 5 sets of childrens' hats and gloves were "bought". The items (which were donated) and an additional $200 will be brought to Abby House right after Theophany.
SPECIAL ENDING TO THE LITANY OF FERVENT SUPPLICATION
During the Time of the Covid-
Let us pray to the Lord.
Choir: Lord, have mercy.
O God Almighty, Lord of heaven and earth, and of all creation visible and invisible, in thine ineffable goodness, look down upon us, thy people gathered in thy Holy Name.
Be our helper and defender in this day of affliction.
Thou knowest our weakness.
Thou hearest our cry in repentance and contrition of heart.
O Lord who lovest mankind, deliver us from the impending threat of the Corona Virus. Send thine angel to watch over us and protect us.
Grant health and recovery to those suffering from this virus.
Guide the hands of physicians and preserve those who are healthy.
Enable us to continue to serve our suffering brothers and sisters in peace
that together we may glorify thy most honorable and majestic name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages.
