Warm your Heart …

22 Nov

… by warming another.

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body.  And be thankful.”  Colossians 3:15

Thanksgiving is two days away and many of us are preparing to celebrate with family and friends.  There are many people in great need of assistance and it is our great joy to help spread the word to help those less fortunate:

Start here:  https://etsy.com/shop/SacredArtCarvings  Our friends, Trish and Ed operate the Emmaus Center for the Homeless in Glen Burnie, MD and are offering a sale of 50% off of art priced over $100.00.  The sale ends November 30th and one can enter the code: 50OFF to receive the discount.  Shown is a carving of Archangel Michael.IMG_7991

 

If you’d like to donate clothing and other items of use, you can write the donations off on your taxes.  Needed items include: toothbrushes, underwear, socks, coats and gloves.  Contact Ed or Trish at www.EmmausCenter.net to discuss most needed items.

Saturday, November 26, 2016 our guild will be participating in the Advent Family Festival at the Shrine of St. Anthony in Ellicott City, MD.

In lieu of our scheduled guild meetings, we will be in the conference room introducing people to iconography through making an ornament of paper.  Beginning at 1:00pm til 5:00pm, this event also features hay rides, a workshop on making wreaths, gingerbread house making workshop, snacks, cider and a bonfire to end the day.  No charge for these events but for every donation we receive, 50% will go the Emmaus Center, 25% to the Shrine and the remainder to our guild fund.  Spread the word and bring your friends and family!  If you would like to volunteer to help, call (410) 303-2392.  Last year 120 families came through the doors to make ornaments, it was fun to see the children learn about icons and make giant messes with glitter,glue, crayons, markers and paint.  This year we will not use glitter … Fr. Michael will be happy about this!  Below are photos of last year’s festival.  IMG_5437
