Adult Volunteers are Needed to Help at Summer Camp! 

 

Please consider donating some of your time and talent to our summer camp "Workshop of Wonders" at SJOTM - Monday, June 23rd - Friday, June 27th from 9:30 am - 12 pm.  It's fun and easy!  For more information, please contact Lynn Mitchell  lynnmitchell@sjotm.org.

 

Homeless Solution Campers

 

Homeless Solutions in Morristown provides shelter, services, and housing to the homeless and the working poor by helping their guest rebuild their lives until they can once again live independently.  Four of the children, served by Homeless Solutions, have been given full scholarships to the Frost Valley YMCA Camp this summer, but their parents cannot afford the basic equipment they need to take with them.  Our own Fenn Putman is the Chairman of the Board of Frost Valley.  So our Mission Outreach Commission thought it would be particularly appropriate to support the cause and did so by sending a check to cover the cost of the required items.  We are hoping to enhance the children's experience by seeking your contributions for "extras" to send with them to camp.  Suggested items* are:  

  • Hair brushes/combs
  • Hair bands
  • Flashlights/batteries
  • Stationery and Stamps
  • Deodorant
  • Sun screen
  • Refillable Water bottles
  • Bug Spray
  • Lip Balm
  • Blank journals
  • Cards
  • Pens 

*Please note that shampoo, toothpaste, and soap are NOT needed. 

 

Contributions can be placed in the laundry basket at the front entrance hallway.

 

Can You Speak or Read Another Language?


Pentecost Readers Needed on Sunday, June 8th

As we prepare for the Feast of Pentecost on Sunday, June 8th, we recall the gift of the Holy Spirit.  The first disciples experienced this by understanding languages they had never before learned.  If you are able to read or speak a language other than English, please contact Mother Susan in order to participate in the proclamation of the lessons on Pentecost, when we will experience the gift of multiple languages proclaiming the Word of the Lord.  Fluency is not needed.  One merely needs to be able to read aloud in a different language.
