EIGHTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
JULY 30, 2017
(Revised Common Lectionary)
O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that, with you as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

NEWS, NOTES, AND EVENTS
Yes, we are buying school supplies in July! Help us fill the backpacks of 15 kids for our seventh year supporting the Mobile Police Department's Family Intervention Team (FIT) efforts to help children return to school prepared. Our goal is to have 100% of our cards taken and filled. Items include backpacks, supplies, calculators, and requests for cash donations. The project will run through Sunday, July 30. The deadline for all collections is Monday, July 31. Help us keep track of each child by writing your name and telephone number on the sign-up sheet. When returning items, please include the child's name and Operation Backpack item number. Donated items may be dropped off on the piano in the Chapter House. Please place your item in a bag and attach a copy of the child's card to the bag. If you are making a monetary contribution, please make your check payable to Christ Church Cathedral with FIT Operation Backpack on the memo line. For questions, please contact Marla at the Cathedral office 438-1822.
