St Patrick’s Episcopal Church welcomes you with love

By Miriam Casey

As the Beatles sang, “All you need is love. Love is all you need.” (Magical Mystery Tour album)

This song, written in 1967, sent a message of encouragement about the power of love to people at that time. When we think about the uncertain and troubling times we are living in now, I suspect we all are needing a little encouragement and love.

St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church has been a loving and spiritual presence in the Kenwood Community since the 1970s. Perhaps you have worshipped or attended functions at St. Patrick’s. Perhaps you have noticed the church and been curious about what it is all about, but never reached out to make a connection. Perhaps you are a member of a church family, and regularly participate in the worship, social and community services happening there. Whatever the truth is for you today, the St. Patrick’s Church family is here to offer love and encouragement to you.

Although we are sheltering in place, we are using technology (Zoom) to stay connected. Here are a few ways we are offering love to you:

Are you feeling anxious or afraid? Please call us so we can pray with you.

Are you feeling disconnected or alone? Please join one of our virtual groups – coffee hour, happy hour, salon to discuss the arts.

Are you hungry and needing food? Please stop by the church the first and third Tuesday (April 7 and 21) from 5-6 p.m. when Redwood Empire Food Bank distributes food in our parking lot.

Are you feeling hopeless and disconnected from God’s love? Please join our Bible study groups, one for men and one for women.

Are you wanting to have worship from the comfort of your home? Here are some options:

• St. Patrick’s services,

• Washington National Cathedral services,

Like the children’s song says, “Jesus loves me, this I know.” During this special time of living with Coronavirus in the community, causing us to rethink how we live alone and together, we want to share Jesus’ love with you.

If you would like to connect with us for any of the things listed above, please call 833-4228. We look forward to getting to know you.
