Announcements for the week beginning October 28, 2018
Nursery – A Nursery for children 4 years and younger is available in Conkey House on Sundays from 8:15 am through the 11:00 am service, and on Tuesdays from 5:45 pm during the Taizé Eucharist.
Children’s Chapel – All children 3½ through 11 years old are invited to Children’s Chapel in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. for Bible stories, prayers, singing, and art projects. Children will process into the Nave at the Peace to join their parents for the Eucharist. If you are a family with children you are encouraged to be seated in the first four rows reserved especially for you.
Hospital Notification – Holy Faith Parishioners admitted to the hospital are encouraged to contact one of the Holy Faith Clergy. Due to HIPAA restrictions, hospitals are not authorized to release patient information, and therefore our Clergy are often unaware when a parishioner has been admitted to the hospital. We take our pastoral responsibilities seriously and want to bring the ministry of prayer and healing to our parishioners.
Coffee Hour – Food and fellowship follow each service: in the Kinsolving Room after the 7:30 service, and in Palen Hall following the 8:30 and 11:00 services. Come and get acquainted!
Prayer Shawl Ministry – After a brief respite the KnitWits will be back at it October 29. We meet in the Kinsolving room from 5:30 to about 7 p.m. for knitting, crocheting, chatting and some tea with cookies. We would love to have you join us. Any questions? Call Allyson Adams at 983-0283. Hope to see you there! Next meeting is November 12.
Daylight Saving Time – Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 4, at 2 a.m. Remember to turn your clocks backward one hour.
All Saints’ Evensong – A Solemn Evensong on All Saints’ Sunday will be held on Sunday, November 4, at 6 pm. Please join us for an evening of sung prayers and anthems in an evening service unique to the Anglican tradition. Evensong is a wonderful way to introduce your family and friends to our beautiful church and our rich Christian heritage. There will be a festive reception immediately following the service in Palen Hall, in thanksgiving for the generosity of the people of Holy Faith as we begin our Stewardship Campaign for 2019.
Upcoming Ordination Service – The Standing Committee of the Diocese requests the honor of your prayers and presence at the ordination of The Reverend Canon Michael Hunn as the Tenth Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of the Rio Grande. The service begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 3, at First Presbyterian Church, 215 Locust St NE in Albuquerque. All are welcome to attend, and no RSVP is required. Doors at First Presbyterian Church will open at 9:30 a.m. and seating will be first come, first served. The Chief Consecrator is The Most Reverend Michael B. Curry. Child care will be available from the First Presbyterian staff, and a child friendly area will be available in the sanctuary.
Save the Dates – Our week at the Interfaith Community Shelter will be December 2-8. Volunteers are needed to serve and/or bring food. More details and sign-up sheets will be available next month.
Retablo Workshop – On Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9, 5-8 p.m., Nov. 10, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., join Santa Fe santero Juanito Jimenez to learn to use brushes and paints to memorialize a healing from grief or illness or to express gratitude for an event or person in your life. The Friday evening session was added to provide time to see each retablo up for reproduction as a larger image or card for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Family Memorial or other special occasion. This workshop is sponsored by the Grief Ministry at Holy Faith and is open to people of all faiths. There is a $50 charge to cover the gessoed board and art supplies. You will leave with a beautiful retablo – traditionally a devotion to the divine painted on board or tin – that you have created. No artistic ability is necessary! For more information, contact Molly Lott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Spiritual Pilgrimage to England and Wales – Fr. Robin will lead a pilgrimage to England and Wales from Sept. 13-24, 2019, which includes visits to St. Mary Redcliffe, Bristol Cathedral, Malmesbury Abbey and Gardens, Bath, Wells Cathedral, Tintern Abbey, St. Davids Cathedral, Ramsey Island, Stonehenge, Salisbury and Oxford. On Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 5 p.m. in the Youth Room there will be an informational session to answer your questions.
Recycle for Sight and Hearing Aid Recycling Program – The Capital City Lions Club collects used eyeglasses and hearing aids for distribution to those in need. If you have old or no longer needed eyeglasses, sunglasses or hearing aids, please donate them in the collection box that is near the back entry to Palen Hall or phone Sylvia Stevens at 946-0473 for more information. “Where there is a need, there is a Lion.”
Remember to use Amazon Smile for your Shopping –Holy Faith is part of the Amazon Smile program, through which recognized charitable organizations receive 0.5 percent of the price of eligible purchases. To sign up, visit http://smile.amazon.com. Once there, you will be asked to identify your favorite charity. In the search box enter “Church of the Holy Faith.” You will see a list of possible matches. Select the one that says “Church of the Holy Faith” with the information at right that says “Santa Fe” and “Incorporation Year 1863.”) You will now see the Amazon Smile logo in the upper left corner. The rest is easy. Just start shopping. Once you’ve selected your charity everything in Amazon behaves the same way you have been used to. Remember to use smile.amazon.com each time you shop. You have to think about it the first few times you return to Amazon, then it will come naturally. If you don’t hit smile.amazon.com, and you don’t see the Amazon Smile logo, then we will not get credit for your purchases. Remember to SMILE rather than WWW. If you already use smile.amazon.com and want to change your designated charity to Holy Faith, log on to smile.amazon.com, go to Your Account from the navigation at the top of any page, and then select the option to Change your Charity. Under “Pick Your Own Charitable Organization,” type in Church of the Holy Faith and click on the Search button. More than one option will appear, so make sure to select the one that says “Church of the Holy Faith” with the information at right that says “Santa Fe” and “Incorporation Year 1863.”)
Additional Parking on Sundays – First Citizens Bank, a 2-minute walk from Holy Faith, is graciously allowing parishioners to use its parking lot Sundays. The bank is at 700 Paseo de Peralta. Its lot is at Marcy and Cienega streets. Parishioners should enter the lot off Cienega Street, opening an unlocked gate. The bank asks that parishioners always close the gate after them. Parishioners also can use the Peyton Wright Gallery parking lot, which is accessed off Paseo de Peralta.
