 I Will Bless You and

You Will Be a Blessing

During the June 18 vestry meeting the vestry unanimously approved supporting St. John's clergy to serve as celebrants in ceremonies from the General Convention approved liturgies in I will Bless You an You Will be a Blessing. The liturgies in this book are the liturgies for blessing same sex couple relationships in The Episcopal Church. Vestry members and clergy have had a full and rich three month discussion and appreciate all the contributions from St. John's parishioners.

From our Downtown Carlisle Association Representative:

In July the borough council will discuss buying new parking meters.  The present parking meters were expected to last 20-25 years but are now 27 years old -- the borough can no longer get parts to repair malfunctioning machines.  The new parking meters will accept the Passport Parking app on your cell phone, a regular credit card, or the old standby, coins.  The cost will be going up, though, to $.75 cents per hour, the first price increase in 15 years, but you will still get the first 15 minutes free. Parking trivia: money must be put in the meters from 8 am to 4  pm, Monday through Friday. 

Parking trivia: money must be put in the meters from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday. 

CPR-AED Certification Annual Training Completed

On June 5th sixteen people completed the CPR and AED training. There are currently twenty-nine parishioners certified on the CPR and AED, twelve of those will need to be recertified in Spring 2020. There will possibly be another CPR AED Certification training course in October. Thanks to those who attended the training.

SPY Volunteers - Time to Sign Up

Please click on the links below each of the weeks and sign up for specific time slots.  If you need help signing up please contact Sue Baxter from SPY.  She will have the current available time slots if you are unable to use the on line system.

We need help with the following volunteer positions:

BOOK READER- Sign up to share your favorite book, or a book selected for you, with a group of young children and show them just how engaging and fun reading a book can be!  Our volunteer readers are so important!  Reading aloud with children strengthens literacy skills, introduces new vocabulary, and models what fluent, expressive reading sounds like.  Volunteer readers read for 30 minutes with each of the two reading groups for a total of one hour.  Counselors remain with the group and monitor behavior so you can relax and enjoy the time making a difference in the lives of children.  

KITCHEN HELPER - Campers at SPY are fed a nutritious and delicious lunch every day while attending camp.  Volunteers are needed to assist our Kitchen Manager with the preparation of the food, serving the campers and cleaning-up after the meal.  Volunteers can sign up for one or all three of the kitchen assignments and can expect to help for about 90 minutes per task.  Two volunteers are needed per kitchen assignment so sign up with a friend!

FOOD BAG PICK-UP- Food bags from Project Share are provided to eligible campers at the end of each week to assure they receive adequate nourishment over the weekend.  A volunteer is needed to pick these bags up and deliver them to the camp for distribution.  Individuals volunteering to pick these bags up should have a vehicle with the capacity to transport as many as 50 bags.
