Computer Help for Seniors
Incarnation offers one-on-one computer help, refreshments, and fellowship to area seniors. Our next session will be Sunday, September 22 from 2-4 PM. Volunteers are needed!
Moravian Open Door
Incarnation is actively involved in projects at Moravian Open Door, a transitional housing program for homeless seniors. This summer, Incarnation is collecting toiletries for the Open Door. New travel– or full-sized toiletries—soap, toothpaste, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorant etc.—can be dropped off in the box in the Parish House between now and the end of July.
Hostos Community College
Members of Incarnation are collaborating with a class of graphic arts students at Hostos Community College in the South Bronx to put together a series of banners for the exterior of the church. Students participating in the project will get to experience working with a “client” to understand the project, develop and pitch ideas, and make a final presentation. Members of the parish involved in PR and the arts will offer feedback and professional guidance throughout the process and the students who have the winning idea will win a small scholarship that can be used for books or fees. Please let one of the clergy know if you have experience in graphic art, PR, or related work and would like to participate.
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!
During the Christmas season, the post office collects letters written to “Santa” and makes them available for answering. On Sunday, December 11 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.

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.
