WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1, 2021 AT SAINT AUGUSTINE OF CANTERBURY EPISCOPAL CHURCH, OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Thanks to all who lovingly contributed, the St. Augustine community was able to present just under $6,000 for Deacon Robby’s discretionary fund. This gift will be used at St. James, OKC, Deacon Robby’s new assignment. Thank you each for all the love and support shown to Linda and Deacon Robby Trammell, they will be greatly missed!
MINISTRY HIGHLIGHT: EUCHARISTIC ASSISTANTS
The Eucharistic Assistants Team at Saint Augustine is made up adults, mature teens and even children serving as an acolyte who may help with extra responsibilities. Eucharistic Assistants robe for the service, process in with the clergy, and serve at and around the altar during worship. You may see them carry the silver cross (Crucifer), assist with communion, ring the Sanctus (altar) Bells, collect the offering basket to bring to the altar, and much more. Eucharistic Assistants are a perfect team to serve on because you can volunteer while you're already at church, and you serve on a team. Win-win! Ongoing training and support is always provided to help those serving feel comfortable and confident. We'd love to see you on the team! If you would like to hear more or volunteer, contact Ricky Womack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BELLS ARE RINGING
After being silent for far too long, the bells of Saint Augustine are ringing loud and clear once again! We owe a debt of gratitude to member Tom Norton, who took the lead in the details and work of this complicated repair. We’re also grateful for the contributions of dear parish members who helped cover the cost. Through a true team effort we can once again enjoy the bells at the beginning and end of our services.
