New "Green " Lighting
Our church and school buildings are REALLY shining now, thanks to the generous donation of LED light bulbs for the entire campus
of St. Andrew's made by Erika and Brendan Rains. Parents of a current student, as well as a recent graduate, the Rains family worked on this project for many months.Hundreds of plastic LED bulbs were recently installed. This conversion from fluorescent bulbs to LEDs will greatly reduce electrical expenses as well as reduce the danger of mercury, which is found in fluorescent lighting. Many thanks to the "construction crew" of Brendan Rains, Brad Niedzielski, Deborah Cook, and our own maintenance person, Mr. Alex for their time on a Sunday. We are truly a much brighter spot than we were before.
Christmas at Sea
Since 1898, Episcopal women have been knitting and crocheting garments such as scarves, hats, and vest sweaters for seamen. These are packaged with such things as toiletries and candy and given to the seamen during the Christmas season by the Seamen's Church Institute.
The historic name of this volunteer program, Christmas at Sea, only partially describes the work of the people who make holidays a little warmer for mariners. While gift distribution happens during winter months, collection and creation of items happens year round, and while many gifts go to international mariners working "at sea," thousands of gifts also go to mariners working on inland waterways here in the United States.
See June DeBang for more information.
