 Greening of the Church

Greening of the Church   

A long-time Anglican tradition is an event called the greening of the church. Since the Episcopal Church honors the season of Advent we wait to decorate the church for Christmas until the week between the 4th Sunday of Advent and Christmas Day. This year the greening will be held Sunday December 23rd at 4 pm.

On that day, Debi Andreff, our florist in residence, provides us with everything we need, greens, flowers, poinsettia plants, etc. etc. to decorate the sanctuary. This is the time when we set up the Christmas tree, and the nativity set as well. This is all done to the sound of Christmas carols and lots of laughter. Afterwards we adjourn to Havermale Hall for a pot luck soup supper. Come join the fun and be amazed at how beautiful our sanctuary looks when we are done!


 Thanksgiving for the life of

Tina Fortuna

Tina Fortuna  

We were shocked to discover recently that Tina Fortuna had died. Her apartment manager revealed that no information had been released by the police and that they had contacted an out-of-state relative who was handling the arrangements. We will let you know about any future services. Tina was a long time member of Emmanuel, and had helped out with various outreach programs including the Episcopal Service Alliance.

  

May her soul and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
