Blessing of the Animals
Help us honor St. Francis with our annual Blessing of the Animals, which will be held on Sunday, October 4 at 4pm at St. David's. Due to COVID, we will not gather for a service, but please bring your pet(s) for a blessing by the bell tower. We will abide by social distancing rules and bless your four-legged family members individually. When you come by, please bring a donation of pet food and supplies, which we will pass along to Loudoun Hunger Relief. Looking forward to seeing you all then.
St. David’s Distance Learning Assistance Project – Needs and Resources Survey
Several St. David’s parishioners have been brainstorming for the past few weeks about how our church family can help each other and our broader community with the challenges posed by Loudoun County Public Schools beginning the 2020-21 school year with 100% distance learning. We decided to survey the parish about the family needs and volunteer resources available within our church community before rolling out specific plans. If you know of a local family in particular need of assistance, please share the link to this survey with them! You do not need to be a St. David’s parishioner to answer this survey. (Also coming soon will be a separate link for taking the survey in Spanish.) We need to collect names and contact information with this survey so we can reach back out to connect you with specific opportunities. This information will not be used for any other purpose, nor shared with anyone outside of the St. David’s distance learning working group.
If you are interested in receiving assistance through the St. David’s community, or are interested in providing assistance to local families, please complete the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SDdistancelearning
Parent/Child Service Reading Teams
Our online services continue this summer adding creative ways for more participation. You and your child/children are invited to read the Psalm or the Prayers of the People together. It is so easy with ZOOM and the Sound Team’s Sunday morning run through that puts everyone at ease. Please use the sign up genius link https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f094aa5a62ca7f94-9amservers39 Contact email@example.com with any questions.
Alleluia Meals Ministry
During this difficult time of the COVID 19 pandemic, the deacon of St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church, in Leesburg, Holly Hanback, saw an opportunity to assist families in need. She reached out to St. Gabriel’s sister church, St. David’s Episcopal Church for assistance. Within 24 hours, the “Alleluia Ministry” was born. Once a week, donations of food, supplies and children’s games are collected from parishioners and delivered to 70 needy families in Loudoun County. Please take a look at the updated Alleluia Ministry needs list. A full list of supplies needed can be found here. Produce is still the number one need. Please drop off items at the Annex on Mondays from 4:30-6:30 pm.

Do you know someone who is serving on the front lines in caring for those who are ill with corona virus? We are starting a prayer list specifically for nurses, doctors, any hospital workers, EMTs or others who are putting themselves at risk to care for others. We will be praying for their health, safety, stamina and spirit. If you would like to add a name to this list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
