PARISH LIFE

Many opportunities exist for us to serve God in ministering to others. Parishioners serve in a variety of capacities to support and lift each other up. At Holy Comforter, we participate in the following outreach ministries:

Episcopal Church Women

This group is open to all women of the parish and meets monthly on the second Monday of the month September through May. They reach out in many ways to the community. To learn more or become a part of ECW please talk to Nancy Smith.

Men's Breakfast

Men’s Breakfast meets weekly on Thursdays. Each week one of our participants brings in a speaker to share their knowledge. Until we meet in person again, we are doing this online through ZOOM meetings. To get the link, join in or ask questions please contact Phil Savage.

The Mature Voice

This fun group meets once a month for lunch on the fourth Thursday at 12:30pm at a local restaurant. Contact Chappy Moser to be added to the group’s email list to learn dates and locations each month.

Sunday Hospitality

This group encourages parishioners to socialize either with lemonade or coffee following our late Sunday morning worship service. All are invited to join us. If you would like to help out, please contact Susan Ryan.

Bread Ministry

This ministry bakes bread and takes it to newcomers. To become involved a bread “maker or taker” get in touch with Margaret Egede-Nissen.

Parish Home Gatherings

During the winter months, parishioners have the opportunity to be assigned a dinner group for a bounded period of time. It is a great time to get to know each other while also eating great food. These groups are organized by Jocelyn Safrit and Harriet Whitley.

Monthly Breakfast Committee

This group provides a breakfast between church services on the 2nd Sunday of the month. We would love to have your help and see more faces at breakfast each month. Ask Elizabeth Hansen how to get involved.

Sunshine Committee

The Sunshine Committee provides either a meal or funeral reception for bereaved families of Holy Comforter. They also provide a meal for parishioners who have been hospitalized. Contact Susan Ryan if you’d like to be a part of this committee.
