The Monroe Clergy Association will hold a “Day of Service” in memory of those who lost their lives last year in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy, in honor of survivors, and as a healing opportunity for anyone who would like to participate. We begin with an ecumenical worship service in the Meetinghouse of the Monroe Congregational Church led by Rev. Jennifer Gingras and Rev. Andrew Courtney (Monroe Congregational Church), Rev. Doug Ryniewicz (Good Shepherd Lutheran Church) and Rev. Kurt Huber (St. Peter’s Episcopal Church) with music director Vic Johnson, and guest vocalists Matt Johnson and Catherine McElaney, vocalists.
Following worship, participants will engage in acts of service at a secondary site. At the Monroe Congregational Church, participants will bake cookies for the homeless and assemble “Cocoa for Caring” mugs to benefit the Monroe Food Pantry. At St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, participants will be engaging in “Art for Peace” and also assembling mugs. At Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, participants will be assembling mugs and celebrating acts of caring. Pastors will be available at each site for prayer and conversation until 1pm. Come pray with us, light a candle, hear words of hope and engage in acts of service. All are welcome! Call 203-268-9327 with any questions.
