Local Outreach

Computer Help for Seniors

Incarnation offers one-on-one computer help, refreshments, and fellowship to area seniors.  Our next session will be October 19, 2014 from 1pm-3pm.  Volunteers are needed!

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.

During the summer, Incarnation collects toiletries for  the Open Door.  During June, July, and August, new travel– or full-sized toiletries—soap, toothpaste, shampoo, shaving cream, deodorant etc.—can be dropped off in the box in the Parish House.

HONEY (Helping Our Neighbors Eat Year Round)

Incarnation collects food at the Parish House year round for elderly shut-ins in Murray Hill.

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.  This year, Operation Santa will take place on Sunday, December 14 from 1-5pm.

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 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.
