Ministry and Mission Requests

Donations for Bags of Love

Sunday, February 2 deadline

Love is in the air!  Children’s M&M (Ministry and Mission) will be putting together “Bags of Love” for the clergy to distribute to our homebound parishioners on or near Valentine’s Day.  Items you might consider:
  • candy, mints
  • individually packaged tea bags
  • snacks, cookies
  • post-it notes, notecards/envelopes
  • pens, pencils, word puzzle books
  • simple items you think someone who is homebound would enjoy receiving 
Get creative!  Please leave your new or unused items in the box located near the lower level reception desk by Sunday, February 2.  

The French meaning of the word Foyer is hearth or hearthside. The Foyer movement of fellowship and food began at Coventry Cathedral in England in the late 1960s and then spread to parishes all over Britain and in America. Today, many Episcopal churches throughout the United States have Foyer groups that promote fellowship among members and encourage the informal exchange of ideas, experiences and common problems within a Christian context while breaking bread together.  Please consider becoming involved in a Foyer group.  If you cannot attend and would like to participate in a group, please contact Lucy Covington (lucyc@allsoulsokc.com).
