are from St. Andrew’s Church in Dayton, which works to collaborate with area outreach programs to serve refugees from Rwanda and Burundi.

     Normally, on this fourth-Sunday-of-the-month, the “loose offering” (anything not designated toward pledge) would be placed in the Clergy Discretionary Fund.             

     This week’s loose offering will all be forwarded to St. Andrew’s to help these men, women and children assist other refugees, some of whose lives are in danger in their home country.

     If you wish to donate, you can place your gift in the regular offering, either in cash or by check (payable to St. Mark’s, with a note that it is for Rwandan refugees). Thank you very much for your generous support.
