Parish Thanksgiving Day Dinner

Thursday, November 27 @ 1 pm

     Our 4th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parish Dinner will take place on Thursday, November 27 at 1:00pm.  Come early for turkey frying, table setting, and games.  Turkey, lemonade, tea and coffee will be provided.  You simply need only bring your favorite Thanksgiving Day salad, vegetable, casserole, or dessert dish to share.  In keeping with the spirit of Thanksgiving, bring a canned good donation for the food pantry if you can.  You can sign up online or at the Welcome Table on Sunday mornings.
     Thanksgiving Day Mass will be at 11:00 am on the 27th, so you're welcome to stay after Mass as we begin set up and celebrating the blessings God has given to us all.  Friends, family, and neighbors are warmly invited.

All Souls Requiem Mass

Wednesday, November 5 @ 7pm

     Join us for our annual Requiem Mass for all the Faithful Departed.  The choir will sing some of the most beautiful and moving music which will be the backdrop for our prayers and reassurances from God as we remember those whom we have loved and entrusted back into God's gracious care.  To have a name of a loved one added to the list of the departed, please fill out one of the forms in the bulletin on Sunday morning or email Daniel Hahn (click here); names submitted by Sunday,  November 2, will be included in the bulletin on November 5.
     This Requiem Mass is one of the most moving liturgies of the year and a beautiful reminder that "in death, O Lord, life is changed not ended; and when our mortal body lies in death, there is prepared for us a dwelling place eternal in the heavens."

Attention Women of St. Columba's

ECW Meeting: Tuesday, October 21 @ 6:00pm

    Connect with other women in our church! Lean in and take time out of your busy schedule to be fed by the women of our parish while we're enriching our community. We need YOU to join us in spiritual growth, joyful fellowship and meaningful outreach and in-reach.

     The first ECW meeting of the year will be held on Tuesday, October 21, at the home of Linda Reid, starting with fellowship at 6:00 pm, followed by a devotion and meeting at 7:00 pm. We’ll have time to enjoy and get to know each other more deeply, be part of a spiritual devotion, and discuss our projects for the year, including our Mother’s Event for Rainbow Village and Angel Tree.

     We will also begin thinking about a few possible projects to roll out over the next three years: parishioner name tags, Around the World Holiday Cookie Event, Mother-Daughter Tea, Lenten Devotion Book, ECW Recipe Book, Rainbow Village Children's Christmas Shopping Trip, a visit to the Cathedral’s Arts & Crafts Show and Farmer's Market, and community cultural events.

     Please RSVP to Linda Reid (email link) or sign up via sign-up genius page (click here). It's time to do something for you, for our church, and for our wider community.

Food Pantry Drive for Emmaus House

 

LoadingWe had a great food pantry response in September, collecting 413 pounds of food that was delivered to The Place of Forsyth County – thank you!!  Beyond the national statistics shared last month, there are alarming numbers in Georgia and our local community as well.  In Georgia, 18.9% of the population (1.87 million people) are food insecure, meaning that they don’t always know where they will find their next meal.  Only Mississippi and Arkansas have a higher percentage of their population in this situation.  Please continue to do what you can to help those in need by bringing in non-perishable food to donate.  We will be providing October’s donations to Emmaus House, collecting food each week leading up to the 3rd Sunday of the month (October 19th - Breakfast Sunday) which is the official collection day for the month.  Biggest needs are canned soups and vegetables, canned pasta (ravioli, beefaroni, etc, canned fruit, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, and anything that can be stored for a long period of time.  Donations can be placed in the tubs located next to the welcome table in the narthex.  Thanks again so very much for your help!!
