Planning or Curious about Baptism at St. Andrew’s? On Sunday, June 9, immediately following the 10:15 service we are hosting the second Baptism Preparation Class of the year. These classes are open to anyone who wants to learn more about the sacrament of baptism and are required for anyone desiring baptism for their self or their child. Please RSVP so we can order lunch for everyone, and childcare will be provided. The class will be no longer than an hour and a half, and we will explore what baptism means in the Episcopal Church as well as how all of us are called daily to live into our own Baptismal Covenant. At St. Andrew’s baptisms will be offered during one summer date (July 21), All Saints’ Sunday (November 3), and in 2025 the Baptism of Our Lord (January 12), Eastertide (TBD), and the Day of Pentecost (June 8). If you have questions or are interested in a baptism at St. Andrew's, please contact Harper Bathel.



A Service of Remembrance at West Point Cemetery – Local Episcopal churches are invited to join Christ and St. Luke’s on Sunday, May 26 at 3pm at West Point Cemetery (238 Princess Anne Road Enter through Elmwood) as we pray with and remember the service of the Black Union Soldiers of the Civil War buried there. You can learn more about the history of the cemetery at https://www.norfolk.gov/facilities/Facility/Details/52

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is looking for knitters or crocheters to make prayer shawls.  Since its inception in 2008, a small group of Prayer Shawl Ministry volunteers have created close to 300 shawls. These shawls are blessed by our priests and are presented to members of our parish when they are sick, hospitalized, or in a situation that calls for comfort and prayers. The basic patterns are simple but the comfort you bring to others is very special and never forgotten. (If needed, we have funds available in our budget to cover the cost of the yarn.) If you knit or crochet and are interested in making a shawl, please contact Deane Sobol.


Down-sizing? Planning to move? Or just cleaning out your overloaded bedroom closet? The Church Mouse is always in need of gently used, like-new items to stock their gift shop. We take lots of different things so we've made up a list which is available on the table outside of White Hall as well as in the Church Mouse. Look for a flyer called How You Can Help Others Through the Church Mouse. You can bring items in during the week and leave them outside of the office. Or you can bring items in on Sunday and bring them into the Gift Shop.


We are excited to announce our theme for VBS 2024: God Has A Plan For YouWe will be exploring how to use each of the qualities that make us special in God’s eyes and how we can share these gifts with our world. This year’s Vacation Bible School is Monday, June 24 – Thursday, June 27 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at St. Andrew’s. Kids who are 4 & ½ through rising 5th graders are invited to participate.
