Tomorrow's Worship
Dear friends,
I look forward to seeing many of you for our service of Holy Eucharist tomorrow, October 18, beginning at 10 a.m. on the church grounds. Please remember to print your bulletin at home (or else plan to read it from your device), and be sure to wear a mask and bring a chair. (Teaser Alert: There will be special treats for those in attendance this week!)
This week's bulletin is available by clicking HERE.
For those who aren't able to join us in person tomorrow, we will live-stream the service on the St. Dunstan's Facebook page  beginning at 10:00 a.m. The recording of the service also will be sent out via email later in the day. 
I ask your prayers for our gathering tomorrow, and I pray that you all have a peaceful evening!
Beginning Monday:
Daily Prayer with Redeemer
We are excited to announce a new collaboration between St. Dunstan's and our sister parish, the Church of the Redeemer, which is designed to broaden the reach of both congregations.
Beginning Monday, October 19, the two churches will be combining forces to offer two opportunities for prayer every week day, Monday-Friday. The schedule will be as follows:
  • Each morning at 10 a.m. we will offer a time of intercessory prayer the old-fashioned way...by telephone! No worries about Zoom fatigue: All you need to do is call our dedicated "prayer hotline," and either Patty Alexander or Cricket Park will be on to pray with and for you. Please give it a try!
  • As well, you are invited to join friends from St. Dunstan's and Redeemer at 8 p.m. every evening, M-F, for Compline. These services will be lay-led and will draw on a variety of sources, including our own 1979 Book of Common PrayerA New Zealand Prayer Book, Celtic Compline, and more! Our own Joey Arkfeld will lead a sung Taizé Compline on Monday evenings.
Help Wanted!
Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington Partner Parish Representative
Are you passionate about social justice at the local level? Are you concerned about our brothers and sisters who are experiencing homelessness? Are you willing to help provide a “next step” to folks trying to find housing and reenter the workforce? If so, then please consider serving as St. Dunstan’s next Samaritan Ministry Partner Parish Representative. Established in 1986 under the auspices of the Episcopal Church, Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington has a proven track record of transforming the lives of homeless and jobless people in the greater DC area. In the past St. Dunstan’s has played a key role in this work: this year alone, our Outreach Committee has granted SMGW $2,500 in support of their life-changing ministry in our community. 
As a Parish Rep, you would represent St. Dunstan's at approximately six partner meetings per year and would help coordinate our participation in SMGW events. This is a meaningful and important ministry, and we hope that you will give prayerful consideration to this opportunity. For more information about Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington, please visit their website. To volunteer as Partner Parish Rep or to explore whether this might be your call, please contact Patty Alexander.
