A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

As I mentioned in a previous email, I have consecrated bread for this Sunday's Eucharist, and that bread is available for you to pickup during the week. Specifically, I have left consecrated bread in plastic baggies on a table in the sanctuary, and I am leaving the sanctuary open at the following dates and times: (1) Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. & (2) Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

You will notice that there is more than enough bread available. Please take only the exact amount that you and your family will need for this coming Sunday. All eucharist bread distributed to households needs to be consumed during the eucharistic liturgy this Sunday.

I've also reached out to Fr. Dan Morgan at St. Luke's Anglican Church in Copley to learn whether some of you can pick up consecrated bread there. Fr. Dan has not responded to me yet, so I will try again today and let you know as soon as I learn something. If neither of the days and times listed above work for you, then please let me know, and we can easily arrange another time, even on Saturday. I am at the church regularly, so please just send me a text at 330-685-5510 and let me know what works best for you.

Also, I received my first question from the St. John's Q & A form, and you can see my video response below. Chad Sanner is helping me with these videos, and this is the first in a series on the sacraments that we've already filmed. If you watch it, please note that all awkwardness and the excessive number of "ums" is entirely Chad's fault :-) But seriously, this is our first try, and we plan to improve the audio and video quality, as well as my delivery. Thanks for any questions submitted on the Q&A. We have a long list of topics to cover but will always make submitted questions a top priority. I look forward to seeing you for Evening prayer at 6:30 p.m. I'll send a link later today.
Grace & Peace,
