 Dear   ,    
 
And now, in this month of Thanksgiving, we would like to say how grateful we are for all the amazing ministries that have emerged from Emmanuel. Million Meals, Project Dignity, L'Arche Wavecrest, Emmanuel Community Demonstration Garden, and Parachute Group are just a few of the groups that were launched primarily by people from Emmanuel, but have had a tremendous ripple effect throughout Southern California an--in some cases--the world. Thanks be to God!
 
With gratitude for you,
Fr. Rob & Mo. Lyn+


 

Thanksgiving for the 

Men's Retreat!

  Men's Retreat 2013

 Beautiful weather, good food, and great fellowship made this past Men's Retreat a wonderful experience. Thanksgiving for Ron Suich who coordinated the retreat, Fr. Lee Walker who was our presenter, and a great bunch of guys who attended and shared. Awesome!           


 

A Way to Help Our Brothers and Sisters in the Philippines

  Philippines Typhoon

 

The Most Reverend Edward P. Malecdan, Prime Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, has released the following statement regarding the church's response to Super Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Yolanda:

A STATEMENT FROM THE ECP PRIME BISHOP ON SUPER TYPHOON YOLANDA

The Episcopal Church in the Philippines continues to offer prayers for our brothers and sisters in the central part of our country whose lives were tragically lost and broken in the ferocious path of a super typhoon that came a month after a killer earthquake also brought death and destruction in the same region. We grieve for and with them as we continue to implore Divine comfort upon all who bear the pain of such a catastrophic experience.

To all our constituents, let our communities and local churches be centers of prayerful solidarity and an assurance of our love,  thoughts and hopes for our suffering brothers and sisters. Let us individually and collectively take every positive effort to contribute to the massive relief undertaking. We are now working in coordination with the National Council of Churches in the Philippines for our participation in the relief work. We also affirm and support the initiatives of our Dioceses of Davao and Central Philippines as they minister to our constituents in the affected areas.

To our partners, we acknowledge and express our gratitude for your thoughts, prayers and support. We appeal for your continuing solidarity as we all join hands in rising up from the unimaginable devastation of our land.

THE MOST REV. EDWARD P. MALECDAN
Prime Bishop 

Episcopal Church in the Philippines
