Newsletter - Nov 2019
   Hello and welcome to the St Simon & St Jude E-Newsletter. I am Pat Woolley. I will be the editor. My husband, Stan, and I have been attending the 8am service at SSSJ for about two and a half years. At first we were "sometimes" attendees, still trying other churches or choosing alternate Sunday morning activities. During that time we got to know Father Mark and the other worshippers at 8am. We made friends, attended a few social events, and took part in a Sunday school class. When we realized SSSJ was our spiritual home, we began by pledging our worship and our treasure for 2019 and now we are ready to also pledge our time in a dedicated way. We plan to work on the newsletter together, each contributing according to our talent. I hope we can get to know each other as we meet at worship and social events. If you have news to share or suggestions for the newsletter, please feel free to contact me at or (803) 662-0504.
The newsletter will be coming out near the end of each month, around the 25th is my hope. Please get me any news you have for December as soon as possible. I don't know who to ask yet, or what the events are that should be announced, so I am depending on each committee chair and persons in the know to give me the scoop. Advent and Christmas are coming up with all the fun that goes with them. I know there is wreath making and the gift tree. Please let me know the details of those and any others that we should share. In the following months I hope we can keep each other aware of all that comes and goes at SSSJ.
Cookies for Kairos was another success. Ken Armstrong posted this photo on Facebook of the donated cookies ready to go. In there are dozens that were contributed by SSSJ. There was some confusion as to the exact number but the count was definitely a record for SSSJ! Thank you to all who contributed. 
Thanksgiving Services
Father Mark has announced the Annual Thanksgiving Eucharist will be at 9:30 on Thursday, November 28. It is a busy day for most of us. Hopefully we can take some time that morning to give thanks together at St. Simon & St. Jude.
 The Annual Parish meeting will be held on Sunday, Nov 24, following the 10:30 service. We will be electing several new members to the Vestry. Please contact Father Mark if you are interested in serving. There will be a luncheon following the meeting. Please bring a covered dish to share.
Please send any news or information to or call Pat at (803) 662-0504 before the 25th of each month. Thanks for helping keep us all up to date!
