🌭🌞🍔HAPPY LABOR DAY WEEKEND! 🍔🌞🌭

Labor Day is a creation of the labor movement of the late 19th century, instituted to pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. The very first was celebrated in New York City. On September 5, 1882, 10,000 workers in New York City took unpaid time off to march from City Hall to Union Square, holding the first Labor Day parade in U.S. history. Other cities soon followed suit. In 1894, Congress passed a law making the first Monday in September a federal holiday.

Panelists will include members of victims’ families, experienced first responders, psychiatric and social work professionals, and community activists. Your active involvement in preparing for the Forum and following campaign is CRUCIAL! Contact: james.white173@gmail.com

Call for ushers
Someone’s first impression of a church, aside from the outside building, is often the way they are greeted by the person standing inside offering them a bulletin. St. Mary’s needs ushers! If you like people and feel passionate about showing others the hospitality and welcome not just of our space and community, but of God, talk to Mother Mary or Atticus for a training. It’s a low impact yet vital role!

We ask your Prayers for:

The Missions endorsed by St. Mary’s Vestry:

The Black Lives Matter Movement (https://policy.m4bl.org/platform/)
Jubilee USA (http://www.jubileeusa.org/)
The New Sanctuary Movement (http://www.newsanctuarynyc.org/)

Our Partners:  Unity Fellowship Church, NYC; NYC Adventist Forum; Pamsula Zen; Alanon; Alcoholics Anonymous; Columbia Harlem Homeless Medical Partnership (CHHMP); the Episcopal Churches in Harlem; Narcotics Anonymous; Network Support; St. Mary’s Center; Urban Qi.

Our Neighbors: 26th Precinct, Eglise de Dieu, Emergency Services, Manhattan North Task Force, Old Broadway Family Residence, Old Broadway Synagogue, Templo Biblico.

  Everyone who comes to St. Mary’s throughout the week, and anyone who is not able to be with us.

And for the broader church:

The Diocese of New York (https://www.dioceseny.org/)
The Episcopal Church (https://www.episcopalchurch.org/)
The Anglican Communion (http://www.anglicancommunion.org/)

For the repose of the soul of Rashaun Pope.
