Human Trafficking Awareness Training — COMING UP! 

Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world and enslaves thousands in our city. Come hear the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser speak about this issue and how communities of faith can respond. Adrian will give a brief presentation in the Parish Hall after coffee hour on October 18. Following morning services on November 1, she will lead a trip to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine for parishioners to experience the UN GIFT Box, a walk-in piece of art that educates viewers about the realities trafficked individuals face.  If you’d like to volunteer to help guide viewers through the GIFT Box experience, click here.

Computer Help for Seniors

Incarnation offers one-on-one computer help, refreshments, and fellowship to area seniors.  Our next session will be in the fall of 2015.  Volunteers are needed!  Please contact the Rector.

Moravian Open Door

Incarnation is actively involved in projects at Moravian Open Door, a transitional housing program for homeless seniors.  We are looking for volunteers interested in writing birthday cards so that every resident gets a note of support and care on their birthday.

Operation Santa

During the Christmas season, the post office collects letters written to “Santa” and makes them available for answering.  Each Christmas season, we have a selection of letters to choose from  in the Parish House.  We will pre-sort the letters and choose those that ask for necessities; e.g winter coats, shoes and smaller gifts.  You are invited to participate as the group selects letters, shops for gifts, and wraps and mails gifts together.  You are also welcome to select a letter and respond on your own, make a donation, or simply help in the work of selecting, wrapping, and getting gifts to the post office.

To get involved or to learn more, please contact info@churchoftheincarnation.org.

Incarnation Center

The Center was founded as “Incarnation Camp” in 1886. Now a 700-acre site in Ivoryton, Connecticut, east of New Haven, the facility includes almost 60 buildings and a mile-long private lake. It is open 365 days a year for overnight and day camps, conferences, nature study and recreation. The Incarnation Vestry annually elects the governing Board of Directors, which has representatives from our parish and 25 other sponsoring parishes. A link to the camp is provided; its main phone number is 860 767-0848.


Link Parish in London

In 2009, our parish established a link with a Church of England parish in the Diocese of London, with which the Diocese of New York has a “companion” relationship. Our link is St. Vedast Alias Foster, located in the ancient City of London, just behind St. Paul’s Cathedral. Incarnation members visiting London are encouraged to attend St. Vedast’s and to make themselves known to the clergy and parishioners there. We recently received a visit from Father Alan McCormack who has been our chief contact. Father McCormack is moving on to a new position in the summer of 2015 but our association with St. Vedast will continue as will our friendship with Father McCormack.
