Still want to farm some land, and want to use ours?Better hurry! Space is going fast. Speak with Sal right away to reserve a plot of 20’x20’ from April through October for a donation of $100.


The Vestry is planning an Easter Outreach Ministry to the homeless of Wash-up Kits to be given on Easter Sunday. Donations of $5.00 will provide funds for the Vestry to purchase toiletries for our homeless brothers and sisters. Envelopes are provided in the narthex for your donation. Please be generous.


The Faculty of the Center for the Arts is going to have a “Musical Explorers” event at the Bay Shore/Brightwaters Library on Saturday, April 8 at 10:30. 15 children in kindergarten and first grade (and a parent/caregiver) will have an opportunity to explore how sound is made, and how it becomes music. You can help us by donations of some clean recyclables: jugs, cans, egg cartons, plastic bottles, tissue boxes, paper towel/toilet paper rolls, etc. Essentially anything that can be used to make some noise. Your donations may be left with Bevin at her Sunday School Classroom, or give to Mark during the week. We need the items by April 5, and thanks for your generosity!
