August 27, 2021:

“Camp Faith” located at St Faiths Episcopal Church was the site for Cub Scout Troop 248‘s first camp out Friday night. The site has been used by various Boy Scouts, but now for a Cub Scout group.

The one night camp out was a great success. The young boys learned some great lessons in life, and made some memo of a lifetime. Food. Outdoors. Fishing. Campfire.

Thank you Brad Hadley for all you do. We are so proud to be able to offer this little piece of heaven on earth to these young leaders of tomorrow.

April 26, 2021: It is with great sadness that we announce our beloved sister Marcia Hitchins has gone to be with her Lord and Savior. Marcia passed peacefully at home earlier today surrounded by her loving family. No other details are known at this time.

Marcia was an active member of St Faith’s and was involved in many ministries including Altar Guild, Daughters of the King, the Food Pantry and Editor of the Ridge Runner to name a few. Please keep Marcia’s family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. She will be greatly missed.

March 7, 2021- Today St. Faith’s bid farewell to one of the true Saints of Saint Faith’s - Donna Lewis. We had a Covid-safe outdoor reception in her honor after the service. Donna is moving to the West Coast of Florida where she will be near her daughter Ann, her husband Matt and her new granddaughter Faith.

Donna has attended St. Faith since about 1985. Over these 36 years she has always been one of those folks who was just “always there” doing what needed doing. Choir member, lay reader, ECW President, Daughters of the King, and Vestry. She spent the last 4 years as our Sr. Warden guiding us thru the transition between Rectors with the retirement of Mother Reid and over the past year navigating the Pandemic.

She has been that person who stops by the church nearly every day to tend to the mail, feed the cats, hosts the Zoom meetings and make sure all is in order.

We will miss her dearly, but hope she comes to visit often.
