Word to the Wyes August 2022

A Collect for Guidance
as we begin our search for a new Rector
Guide us, O Lord, in all we do with your most gracious favor, and further us with your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify your holy Name, and finally, by your mercy, obtain everlasting life, which you have given us in our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Hello friends!
We had a super time at our craft session this week. Robin taught us the steps for decorating oyster shells; the results were wonderful! Next we will be making cork Christmas trees. We shared crafting and conversation until about noon, and then had a delicious lunch, brought by several ladies who had previously volunteered. We were finished and cleaned up by a little after 1:00.
We’ve decided to meet every Thursday, from 10:00 to about 1:00, with lunch.
Come join us when you can!
