SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 10:10–10:50 A.M., Bloedel Hall
All ages are invited to hear the stories of St, Martin of Tours and St. Nicholas of Myra, generous givers both, while making ditty bags for the Mission to Seafarers. Donations are needed for the ditty bags—find a list of items at this Amazon wish list link.
That Amazon Wish List contains items requested by our neighbors at Lowell School and by our partners at Mission to Seafarers. Social workers at Lowell Elementary have requested donations of socks and underwear—these are currently the most urgent need for the large proportion of students from families currently in insecure housing or shelters.
Mission to Seafarers needs treats and toiletries for the 1,000 ditty bags they present each year to workers on commercial ships who find themselves far from home during the holidays (many unable to disembark while in Seattle).
You may order from the wish list directly, or use it as a guide for what is needed. Either way, please bring items with you to church on Sunday, November 12. Some will be used to create ditty bags at the Intergenerational Sunday Forum that morning at 10 a.m. The remainder will be delivered to Lowell School or passed on to the main diocesan ditty bag stuffing party, to be held at St. John the Baptist in West Seattle on November 18.
