SHRIMP CREOLE DINNER CANCELLED

The St. Andrew’s/St. Cyprian’s ECW Shrimp Creole Dinner scheduled for March 28, 2020, is CANCELLED. Ladies of the churches, please return unsold tickets. For those who purchased a ticket, please contact the person who sold it to you for a refund. We regret any inconvenience this caused, but we are Social Distancing in this time of the Coronavirus Global Pandemic. Please stay safe and keep washing those hands with soap and water. Please pray with us for our entire community:

 Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort us in this time of trial. We beseech you to behold, visit, and relieve thy sick servants. Look upon them with eyes of mercy and comfort them. Give your power of healing to all who minister to the sick, that this virus may be banished, and our strength restored. In thy good time, restore us to health all the days of our lives and grant that we may dwell with you in life everlasting through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

CHURCH SERVICES FOR ST. CYPRIAN'S AND ST. ANDREW'S CANCELLED FOR TWO WEEKS BEGINNING MARCH 15, 2020.

Dear all,
As you will see from the email below from our bishop (via the canon to the ordinary), we have been asked by the Governor to suspend worship for the next two weeks. At the direction of the bishop, we will do so. There will be no Sunday or weekday services and no church activities at all until further notice.
Since this matter has just come to my attention this morning, I am sure that I will be getting more information and some aspect of the above may be modified. Please stay tuned.
As the bishop points out (and as my sermon was going to open with tomorrow) the collect for the 3rd Sunday in Lent is quite appropriate:
Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Subject: A Note from Bishop Benhase after Governor Kemp request churches not worship

A change of plans is in order for this coming Sunday as Governor Brian Kemp has said it is appropriate for faith-based organizations and other groups to consider canceling public events as he works through the steps to declare Georgia’s first ever public health emergency. While this is not an order, it is a carefully considered request by our governor made with the best interest of public health in mind. In my judgment as your bishop, it is time for the congregations of the Diocese of Georgia to suspend gathering for worship for the next 14 days. We will reassess the situation during that time with the guidance of public health officials.

I know that you will check on your members who stay home during this time. Though they are not physically present for worship, we need all our parishioners to know that we care for them.

Some congregations will be livestreaming worship this Sunday. Know that Washington National Cathedral will livestream its worship this Sunday at 11:15 am with a sermon by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry at this link:

The collect for this Sunday seems most appropriate:
Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
