Blessings of Christmas
Dear ones in Christ,
As we near the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, we find ourselves with worship and fellowship opportunities that fill our days. We had a wonderful time last Sunday with a joint worship and Lessons and Carols with Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church. In a world that is ever-more divided and polarized, coming together in ways that foster unity and inclusion is one of the most faithful and effective ways we can bring our Christian commitments into our world and communities.

Opportunities to help others:
To help, make a check payable to St. Catherine’s and add “mission needs” in the memo line.
St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church
Our volunteer Financial Administrator will be mailing year-end contribution statements in January.
Family in Need
A family is in need of some help to tide them over the next couple of months until the father can go back to work. There are specific clothing items needed for a variety of ages and basic food pantry items.
Non perishable foods can be brought to the church for the family. For the clothing items check with Beverly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Fred Meyer gift cards are also a possibility. Or you can donate through St. Catherine’s — just note “family in need” in the information line.
