Please support St. A's outreach ministry through SPY (Safe Place for Youth): St. A's has committed to SPY to feed what has grown to 70-80 homeless kids one Thursday dinner per month.
The next scheduled dinner is November 13, 2014.
We would love to have your participation in one of two ways. One Wednesday evening per month we prepare the dinner in the parish kitchen which is a lot of fun and good fellowship. We need cooks but more importantly, shoppers to purchase the dinner ingredients. We have created "shopping bags" of ingredients for varying budgets. If you would like to participate and are not on the monthly email list, you can contact Mindy Staley at email@example.com.
You can provide financial support for this program by making out your check to St. Augustine church, with "SPY" on the memo/subject line.
The Centering Prayer Group meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. (for about 1 hour) in the Chapel, All are welcome; no previous experience needed.
