Holy Family Annual Meeting January 31st 10 AM on Zoom: Every year Holy Family meets to elect Vestry members and Diocesan Convention delegates, learn about the finances of the church, hear about the ministry plans for the year, and most of all pray for the parish. Its Annual Meetings fit the character of Holy Family, in that they are rather casual, very relational, full of good humor, and open to all. If you have any questions about this year’s meeting, whether before or after, please contact Fr. Bruce or any member of the Vestry.
 
Nominations Open for Vestry: Holy Family is seeking three candidates to serve on its Vestry, the nine-member board that advances and supports the mission of the congregation by ensuring effective organization and planning, and managing its resources and finances. Candidates must be at least 16 years old, have been baptized in any Christian denomination, and have been faithful in giving of their time, talent, and treasure to the congregation and in their participation in worship. Two-thirds of the Vestry members must have been confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church. If you have an interest in working cooperatively with others for the furthering of God’s mission for Holy Family, especially in helping Holy Family grow in outreach, membership, welcoming, and faithfulness, please contact Fr. Bruce at bgray@hfec.org for more information. You may fill out the vestry application HERE.
 
Fishers COVID-19 Vaccine: The Fishers Health Department has created a form to assist in the preparations of COVID-19 vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccinations are not anticipated to be available to the general public until mid-2021 but certain individuals may qualify to receive the vaccine sooner. This survey is based on the most current criteria being utilized at the state and national level for vaccine allocation. By filling out this form, you are assisting in the planning process and eventual notification process for the vaccination by the Fishers Health Department, but this does not guarantee you a place in line nor a vaccine.

Reading the World: What’s in a name? The Holy Family Tuesday Afternoon Book Group has, at last, chosen one called “Reading the World”.  No, the group does not read travel guides and maps…though it could. The club enjoys books that carry a world of ideas and perspectives: fiction and nonfiction, authors from Nigeria, Spain, and England, and authors from various corners of the American literary landscape. 

What’s in a name?  Well, it’s a hint as to who the readers are in this group. The hope is that it carries an invitation that appeals to you! The current book is The Other Bennett Sister by Janice Harlow, which provides the discovery that Pride and Prejudice could have featured the story of one more amazing and strong young woman!

The book club meets on Zoom for now, and it’s great! Join the next meeting on Tuesday, February 16th at 2 PM. Questions may be directed to the church office. admin@hfec.org   Zoom Meeting:  Meeting ID: 830 1448 1053    Passcode: 769337
