Evensong Sunday Afternoon
Please join us in the sanctuary for Evensong tomorrow September 20 at 4:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary when we will be observing St. Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist. The service music will be Stanford, in C, and the anthem is Ernest Farrar's Almighty God, the Fountain of all Wisdom. This service will also be live-streamed to our Facebook page and archived on YouTube. You can access the Evensong service leaflet by clicking the link below.
If you feel ill, we ask that you not come to church. For all services, please enter through the main door to the Sanctuary or the handicapped entrance on the side. A summary of our key practices for conducting church safely can be accessed with the link at the bottom of the page.
We have been told that several people have had problems accessing the live-streamed services. If you are having issues with live-streaming, please respond to this email to let Marty know. We'll try to come up with solutions.
Rector's E-mail Address
Going forward, Rev. Cole will be using the email address "email@example.com" rather than his personal gmail address. Please update you contact list - and make sure that you no longer have this email address associated with Bruce Robison!
For the past decade or more, St. Andrew has participated in the annual Pittsburgh East CROP Walk for hunger as the major fund-raising event to support Church World Service's campaign to eliminate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition globally. Each year 25% of the funds raised directly support local families in need.
This year, participating churches are encouraged to stage small-scale activities in place of the area-wide walk. St. Andrew's has decided to conduct a 2-3-mile walk, with walkers at 6-foot intervals, through Highland Park on Sunday afternoon, October 11. You can support the walk in two ways:
- Participate in the walk with Rev. Cole and other St. Andreans, and, if you choose to do so, enlist donors to support the walk.
- Make a donation to support the st. Andrew's CROP Walk Team
Your are encouraged to donate directly online at https://standrewspgh.us19.list-manage.com/track/click?u=56b4f26646e0f9a4a1242fae0&id=0f73e11082&e=08909bfaa8
Reminder: Annual Meeting Report
As we mentioned last week, we decided to defer finalizing and distributing the report until the arrival of our new Rector. The period covered by most of the report entries is May 2019 (after the previous Annual Meeting) through August 31, 2020. This enabled us to share a comprehensive, up-to-date picture with Chris when he officially began his tenure with us.
Hard copies of the report will be available in the Narthex on Sundays. To download an electronic copy click the link below.
