Soup Kitchen Meal Prep
Thursday, July 7, 2016
Soup Kitchen Meal Prep: On Thursday, July 7, we will provide 200 bag lunches for those who normally have lunch at the Soup Kitchen.  Each year the Soup Kitchen closes during the week of July 4 to give the workers a much needed break.  The day assigned to Christ Church is Thursday (7/7).  Last year we made turkey sandwiches served with bananas, potato chips, cookies and bottles of water. 

We need monetary contributions to purchase food and supplies, and a few volunteer to cook turkey breasts, make sandwiches and pack the lunches.  If you can help, please contact Sandra Fletcher.  Many of those who eat at the Soup Kitchen get very little else to eat each day.  Please help us provide lunches for them on this one day. 

Thank you so much for your generous assistance.
Cross Wall in Gabard Building
We are collected crosses to place on a wall in the Gabard Building.  If you have any crosses you would like to donate to the church, please bring them by the church office. Thank you in advance!

DR Team: Help from Florida
Delivering another lectionary volume
Our partner mission team from Nebraska arrived in Santo Domingo on June 15th and will be at the Campamento from June 16-21 working on their own projects plus completing two of ours that needed parts that we could not find locally. Our former parishioner and fellow missioner, Jim Drazdowski, is a member of that Nebraska team and will be working on both our seesaw and basketball rim installation projects.

Another partner team from St. Matthew's Episcopal Church in Orlando, Florida, arrives at the Campamento on June 21, and they will be bringing with them a companion lectionary volume to the one we donated in May. Our May donation contained the complete set in Spanish of all lectionary readings, including the Gospels, but since we were there another lectionary version in Spanish with only the Gospels has been published. We bought that companion volume and mailed it to the Rev. Sonia Sullivan Clifton, leader of the St. Matthew's team, to deliver to Padre Daniel Samuel at the Campamento when they arrive. The new volume is lighter and much easier to hold aloft while reading the Gospel. The Rev. Clifton and several members of her church were members of our 2015 mission team, and had such a good time with us that they formed their own team for 2016. 

Thanks, Nebraska and St. Matthew's!
