September 2021: In response to the Bishop’s call for support - for the next two Sundays (9/5/2021 + 9/12/2021) St. Faith's Episcopal Church will be making a special appeal and collecting cash donations for Haiti relief.

Your donations through St. Faith’s will be matched 1 x 1 by Fr. Picou from the Rector’s Discretionary fund, so please give generously. We will send our donation to Episcopal Charities who have pledged that 100% of your donation will go to Haiti, with no administrative charges.

Listen to the Bishops appeal here:

You can also donate electronically via our website using the “DONATE” button on the Left of this page; just add 'for Haiti' to the memo.

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.

April 17, 2021: St. Faith's hosted a district Boy Scout training for Scout Masters this past weekend. It was a full weekend of leadership training and overnight camping fun. Our wooded property has been an ideal site to be transformed into an outdoor place of joy for many. Thanks to Mark and Brad Hadley and our troop #248 for all their many hard working hours to create 'Camp Faith.

Camp Faith will be used again next weekend for a similar event for Cub Scout leadership. We are blessed to be able to share our slice of heaven here on earth.

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.

LifeLine Screening will be at St. Faith's Saturday February 27, 2021

Annual Meeting: was held January 10, 2021 11:00 AM: Congratulations to new Vestry Members: Virginia Covarrubias, Cecelia Jones and Christine Piersol. Millions of thanks to retiring Senior Warden Donna Lewis and Vestry member Lorienne Watson. Fr. Mike appointed Christine Piersol as Senior Warden.

Donna seved on the Vestry for six years; and was our Senior Warden for 4 years during our transition between priests. Her steady leadership and hard work behind the scenes during this time was incredible. THANK YOU DONNA!!

........................................................................................................................................

This morning even the St. Faith’s Peacocks wanted to hear Fr. Mike’s uplifting message.

 

Start your New Year in 2021 right; join us each Sunday at 10 AM.

Worshiping with safe Covid protocols in place

Christmas Eve Services 2020 were a resounding success. The Altar was decorated with the Chrismon Trees arranged by the ECW and Poinsettia’s arranged by the Altar Guild with memorial donations.

The 'music' this year was going to be a challenge since our Covid protocols would not allow singing inside. Our organist, Virginia, and her husband Rodrigo came to the rescue. They provide a combination of live piano and organ together with recorded choir singers that filled our sanctuary with Christmas Joy.

During the rendition of 'Silent Night' all the lights in the sanctuary were extinguished, leaving only the Altar , the Creche and candles held by each parishioner.

Since we have had no music in the sanctuary for 9 months, it was an emotionally moving service indeed

October 2020: It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Noel Heron. Noel contracted the Corona virus a couple of months ago, and it took hold very hard. Noel fought the illness for many weeks. Noel was a current member of the St. Faith's Vestry and often sung with the choir - so his leadership will be missed by many. Noel is survived by his wife Monica, his two children Julie and Peter; seven grandchildren Josten, Jonathan, Jada, Jade, Jalyssa, Jahdon and Johan. He leaves behind his legacy of love, wisdom, knowledge and experience which will be continued by his children and grandchildren. Noel is truly missed, will always be remembered and forever be loved. In Noel’s words “Bye, Bye” for now, until we meet again.

Congratulations and a huge THANK YOU to Eagle Scout - Sebastian Bulgarin of Troop 357

Sebastian’s Eagle Scout project was the restoration and improvements to St Faith’s outdoor Altar. He planned and directed all of the work. He and his troupe refurbished the altar and benches and they added a beautiful trellis.

The new Altar area with the trellis is a beautiful addition to the St. Faith’s property. You can just imagine decorated with flowers for a wedding or other special service. The outdoor Altar is located down the gravel path behind the main sanctuary among the trees.
