St Peter's Episcopal Church (205 Longmeadow)
St. Benedict's Church (3980 Main Street)
will host a Thanksgiving themed dinner at St Peter's Church November 17th from 5-8pm (dinner served around 5:30pm). We are hoping for approximately 50 people total (ESL members and volunteers).
ESL stands for English as a Second Language. Our Eggertsville community has a significant population of ESL people. This dinner will not only provide a Thanksgiving-themed meal, but it will also give the ESL group members a chance to practice speaking English.
Donations are greatly appreciated such as sweet potatoes recipes, pumpkin pie, apple pie, carrot cake, pumpkin bars, cranberry sauce or whatever Thanksgiving related item you would like to share.
RSVP by November 8th to Maura MacDonald at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 832-5429. Let us know what you are bringing as well.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING THE HANDS OF CHRIST!
Our service with St. Peter's was prompted by the joint Pastoral letters of our Bishops -- R. William Franklin of the Episcopal Diocese of WNY and Richard J. Malone of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Buffalo. Representatives of our parishes have been meeting and praying together since that first joint Pastoral came out. Here is the first Joint Pastoral Letter - http://bit.ly/1yWaItr
