Action Alert

The New York State Assembly member for Murray Hill is Richard Gottfried. Assemblyman Gottfried is working on a bill to decriminalize prostitution in New York State. Such legislation would legalize pimping, sex buying, and brothels — a very scary prospect, for NYC especially.
Please call Gottfried’s offices and say you don’t support (and are deeply offended by) his efforts to decriminalize the sex trade in New York. It goes against women’s rights and increases human trafficking.
Learn more in this New York Post article, Don’t pass this ‘pimp protection act.’

Lenten Linens Drive

Throughout Lent, we will be collecting new bath towels and new twin sheet sets for the residents of Moravian Open Door. Our goal is to collect 40 of each so all residents will receive new linens. Please note that we cannot receive used items.

Lenten Discussions

We will have the usual Sunday discussions in Lent from 12:30 to 1:15 p.m. in the Parish Living Room. This year, the clergy will look at the Presiding Bishop’s new program, The Way of Love, and will also look at a new program on the Bible. Together, these will comprise a four-part series on“Biblical Bad Words and Good Words.” Come learn how the Bible uses these words and what they mean for us today:
March 10: Sin
March 17: Transgression
March 24: Learn
March 31: Turn
Please note there will be no 10:00 a.m. adult Bible Study during Lent.

Confirmation/Inquirers Class

Our annual Confirmation/Inquirers Class is for all interested in the Episcopal Church’s understanding of the Christian faith, especially those preparing for the sacrament of Baptism or the sacramental rite of Confirmation. There will be six sessions beginning Wednesday, February 20, and meeting on consecutive Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Parish House.

We will cover the fundamental doctrines of our faith, church history, reading the Bible, and more. Please join us!

Confirmations will occur at the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, April 7, when the Bishop of New York visits our parish. Baptisms will occur at the 6:30 p.m. Easter Vigil on Saturday, April 20. Please contact the Rector if you are interested or have questions.

London Parish Exchange Visit

Planning has begun for the Incarnation parish visit to our sister church of St. Vedast in London on May 11–14. Travelers can find their own accommodations or may be able to stay with members of St. Vedast. Contact the Rector for more information.
