Hopefully by now you will have had an opportunity to read the VERY interesting articles in the local Picayune Magazine that shares some interesting facts and stories about the two local Episcopal Churches and some of their members over the years. If not, I think you might find an extra copy at the church office.
****CHRISTMAS POINSETTIAS**** There is a sign-up sheet in the Narthex for them. I will let you know how much they are whenever I am informed.

****Concerning ZOOM****when entering the meeting, if asked if okay to unmute answer YES.

"Dear Epiphany, I promised to keep you updated, so: From Lightning Strike Damage: · Most of the lighting is repaired, but still have high narthex, sanctuary lights to go. It requires a scissor lift which we’ll rent & reschedule electrician. · Copier is fixed, except for problem with lines on color feature. Service contacted. · Phone committee is formed & will work on identifying new system which they’ll recommend to Vestry & submit to insurance. · Computer repairs continue. Will be finished when new phone is selected. · Structural engineer has inspected and bell tower has been secured; roof damaged by bricks has temporary patches. All will be repaired when insurance company has final report (2 wks ?). · A/C units’ parts have been ordered and repairs will be completed when they come in. Other updates: · The Boys and Girls Club has found new quarters close to their current other location. They will move their cabinets etc. during Christmas holidays. Space is being cleaned so it can be used for other meetings. · A water heater leak was discovered in the Youth Building which occurred while the space wasn’t being used. Small water heater will need to be replaced & cabinet repaired. · Pest problem (mice & squirrels) has been discovered. There are numerous openings in grates & columns that allowed entry, that will need correction. First estimate is $1500.
We are doing really well, despite a myriad of challenges. We’re a beehive of activity and when it’s through I believe we’ll be in far better shape. Blessings and love in abundance, Linda "
