From Bishop Doyle:
Barbara Bush said, "Some people give time, some money, some their skills and connections, some literally give their life’s blood. But everyone has something to give." This gentle, humble, and caring woman gave of herself to others. She gave herself to the nation, to school children, to her church, and to her family. From a factory during WWII, to reading programs, church groups, and the White House she has been a giver. The nation mourns her loss as it has done so for other amazing first ladies. Her Episcopal Church family mourns her loss and gathers around her family in this time. And, we find meaning in this time, shaped not by death, but by resurrection. So, we with others celebrate a life well lived punctuated by giving. And, we celebrate her inheritance with the saints in light whom we love but see no longer. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

Maintaining Our Beautiful Elderly Nave
Explained by Jo Wicker
Explained by Jo Wicker
Other than the floors, the pews suffer the most wear and tear of the sanctuary furnishings. Screws and nails work themselves out, upholstery stains and tears, book racks break, and kneelers become loose.
Currently, minor repairs on the pews are underway. Specifically, holes left by removal of hooks that held pew cards are being filled, sanded and stained. In addition, the laminate covering the pew supports on the backs of the pews is being repaired.
Please be sure the little people in your pew (and any big people who need watching,) do not pick or pull off the blue tape marking the repair sites. Picking and pulling anything that can be picked or pulled seems to be a universal need of humankind. RESIST.
The pew repairs on the south side are completed. The repairs of the laminate on the pew supports on the north side are identified and marked with the blue tape across the back of the pews. Repairs begin immediately, followed by filling holes left by hardware removal.
The next phase will include repairs of the kneelers, and we'll keep you informed. At the end of the project, you will know more about pew repairs than you ever thought possible or necessary for your well-being, but you never know. Somewhere, sometime in your future, there could be a pop quiz on pew maintenance and repair.
You will be prepared.
