New Opportunities to Serve!
Incarnation is working hard on two exciting new outreach projects. The first is a plan toOffer one-on-one computer help to neighborhood seniors along with a meal and a chance to connect with friends and neighbors. The second is an informal cooking class led by a local farmer whose fresh ingredients will be used in creating a sustainable slow food meal. With this project, we hope to encourage healthy, sustainable cooking, help participants learn how to cut down on food costs, and build community. If you are interested, please contact the Assistant Minister.
During the Christmas season, the post office collects letters written to “Santa” and makes them available for answering. On Sunday, December 9 after the 11 am worship service, we will 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. Please contact email@example.com with questions.
HONEY (Helping Our Neighbors Eat Year Round)
Incarnation collects food at the Parish House year round for elderly shut-ins in Murray Hill, and puts together and delivers Thanksgiving meals every November. Please join us!
NYU Medical Center
We collect magazines year round in the Parish House for patients at NYU.
The Center was founded as “Incarnation Camp” in 1886. Now a 700-acre site in Ivoryton, Connecticut, east of New Haven, the facility included 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 are looking forward to a visit from a group of members from our London Link parish of St. Vedast during September of 2012. Please speak to the Rector if you are interested in helping to organize the visit.
