The Episcopal Church in the City of Euclid

 

Dear Friends in Christ,


It’s November, and Revd Rosalind has just completed the first month of her sabbatical.  I pray that she comes back refreshed, renewed, and ready to lead us into a new year. She is missed.We had our first

Halloween/All Saints party on Saturday, October 20.  It was a huge success!  All in all, we had about 30 children at the party, plus their parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends and neighbors.  We played games, did crafts, colored pictures, had pizza and popcorn and cider.

I asked several people how they heard about our party.  One works at a daycare and rides the bus to work, catching it in front of our church.  She was sitting on the bench (the one we installed at our 90th anniversary celebration) when she read the message on our sign in front that said we were going to have a Halloween/All Saints party on Saturday October 20, and all were welcome.  She came back to the church that Saturday and brought some of the children in her care.

Some of the residents from our neighborhood also saw the sign and brought their children, grandchildren, and foster children.

We gave copies of our flyer about the Halloween/All Saints party to the pre-school students, letting them know that they were welcome to join us.  And many did come, and had a wonderful time.

Parishioners brought their children and grandchildren, and some came alone just to be a part of it.  People who regularly attend our community meal stopped by wearing festive Halloween-themed sweaters and sweatshirts.

People came up to me saying what a great time they had, and how they wanted to come back some Sunday and check us out.  I told them all were welcome in God’s house, and we looked forward to seeing them again.

So if some Sunday you happen to see someone you don’t know, they very well may have been at the Halloween/All Saints party.  Smile and welcome them to Epiphany.

Have a peaceful November and a blessed Thanksgiving.  And don’t forget to vote!!
