Voices From Prison
A group of church members and friends meets every Monday at noon, via Zoom, to read, discuss, and offer feedback on poetry written by people from the District of Colombia who are in the Federal prison system. The poets are either teenagers or people who entered the system as teenagers, and they are frequently too far away for family to visit. Their poetry expresses their feelings, reflections on their lives, and visions for the their future. Participating in this group provides a lifeline to these incarcerate individuals and is life-changing for the participants as well. If you are interested in taking part in this group, please contact Lynne Slater (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
Winter Coat Drive
Donate children’s winter coats to be given to the young students at Langley Park-McCormick Elementary School. There will be boxes in the narthex for your donations. For more information, please contact any member of the Jubilee Commission.
Toss Your Hats (and Gloves) on the Tree
The beautiful Christmas tree in the breezeway is there to receive your donations of hats, mittens, scarves and gloves for those in need this winter. From your warm hearts to chilly fingers, please be generous!
Assistance for Ukrainian Refugees
As the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine grows, there are many reputable organizations where you may donate money to support refugees. Our parish Jubilee Commission recommends the follow organizations:
St. Andrew’s Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, Silver Spring
International Rescue Committee
Assistance for Afghan Refugees
Hyattsville has been selected as one of the communities in the United States where refugees from Afghanistan will be resettled, and Lutheran Social Services (LSS) is the local agency tasked with aiding that resettlement. Our parish Jubilee Commission has been in communication with LSS to determine how our parish may be of assistance with that resettlement work. LSS has requested the donation of gift cards of any value to the following stores: Giant, Safeway, Aldi, Walmart, and Target. You may place donated gift cards in the offering plate at church. The Jubilee Commission will match all donations up to a total of $500.
Ongoing Food Drive
Each week, we collect donations of non-perishable food for distribution at our local food bank – Help-by-Phone. Food donations may be placed in the collection baskets located on the left as you enter the front doors of the church. The church is open most days of the week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feel free to call the church office ahead of time (301 864-8880) to ensure the church is open.
