Rector’s Letter for 8/10

Dear Redeemer Family: On this beautiful Monday morning, I am thankful for so many things. For my own life and calling, for my family, and for my Redeemer family. In the midst of my morning and days, I pray regularly for you all (usually by your faces, envisioning where you usually sit on Sundays, at least on Sundays before coronavirus). I am also thankful for you, as I know that many of you pray regularly for me and my family. This…

Rector’s Letter for 8/3

Dear Redeemer Family, It was great to be back with you after a refreshing time of vacation, as we celebrated Holy Eucharist together yesterday. As I noted during the service, we will be returning to our “normal routine” of Holy Eucharist every Sunday. As we did yesterday, we will be distributing communion carefully to those who are in attendance, and we will have communion available for pick-up for those who continue to worship from home. Communion is now being offered…

Update from the Children’s Ministry Director

Dear Redeemer Family: During this Covid-19 season God has taken several opportunities to speak to me through His beautiful creation, especially birds. Their joyful songs and graceful flight remind me that I am not to worry. God provides for their needs and Jesus says I am “of more value than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:31) In late March Bob and I were having lunch on our back porch when I noticed a male and female cardinal sitting on our fence peering…

Deacon’s Letter for July 6, 2020

Dear Redeemer Family: With our rector, Fr. Bill Driscoll, away on vacation for the next 3 weeks, you will be getting updates in the Monday email from ministry leaders. Join me in praying for the Driscolls as they take time to relax, refresh, and refocus. Ministry is weighty under the best of conditions and the last few months have been particularly difficult. Fr.
