Stewardship- 2020 Year in Review

We are so grateful to you and your families for the support you have continued to give to St.
Patrick’s during these challenging times. As we said in our stewardship letter, our work deeply
matters and we need connections, hope and comfort of each other. Who could have foreseen how
much our lives have changed since the beginning of March 2020.

Throughout the past few months, live-streaming of services has been made available along with
e-mail and telephone calls. Another opportunity we enjoyed was the availability of Zoom
meetings and a time to join coffee hour after our online service. Thank you to members of the
Vestry, especially Jamie, for the countless hours it takes to connect us together and making this

What a blessing it has been to see everyone come together to feed the hungry, especially during
our commitment to the Columbia Street luncheon every other month. Because of our new lighted
sign, advertising was able to be displayed regarding our outside library box for all to enjoy. Our
church garden was able to provide neighborhood families with food grown during the summer.

We have the opportunity to stay connected through Zoom with Creative Crafts and
Conversations on Monday evenings. The Artful Spirit Connection program has been connecting
with others throughout our parish. Thank you to the groups already in place that continued these
vital programs.

Your generosity is so appreciated and allows us to continue to keep St. Pat’s “on the
map”. Thank you for your support.
We are so blessed,
Respectfully submitted,
Tom Copeland, Jane Harburger, Paula Baines
