Our own Fr. Tom delivered a workshop for the Diocese of Southwest Florida entitled, "Baptismal Covenant: Five Questions." It can be viewed by clicking this link any time. Fr. Tom is well acquainted with the sacrament of Baptism, as he focused on it in the pursuit of his doctorate from Seabury-Western.
Anyone may join us Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m., in studying and discussing the Bible.
Fr. Tom leads us in a conversation about the spiritual meanings in scripture and how the Bible is applicable in our lives today. Sessions are standalone, meaning that if you missed a session you may join the following week and fit right in. There is no prerequsite, no fee, and registration isn't required. Just click a link and be ready to absorb some new knowledge in 2021.
If you haven't used Zoom before, make that click an hour or so before the meeting, in case you need to download and install the program and test your sound and video.

Episcopalians of the Naples Deanery have been supporting the children at a shelter in the Dominican Republic for the last 18 years. The Albergue el Buen Samaritano in San Francisco de Macoris, serves a hundred children who would be on the street were it not for the shelter. The kids arrive for breakfast, learn their abcs and social skills and get lots of love that may otherwise be missing in their young lives.
It is a ministry of love and affection, above all.
Dr. Susan Wilson, an English family physician, is full of energy and zealfor the Lord. She founded Tumaini (the word means "hope") Fund to put her faith to work in the AIDS-ravaged Kagera region of Northwest Tanzania. There she established an orphanage for thousands of children who lost their moms and dads to AIDS. In addition to monitary contributions, the ladies of our church, the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) have sewn numerous dresses for Dr. Wilson to distribute.
Parishioners Mike Moore and Roger Conant are directors for the fund in the United States.
