PRAISE GOD AND PASS THE GROCERIES!
COVID-19 OUTREACH UPDATE:
$3295 Raised of $1500 Goal by June 1, 2020
On Monday, May 18, St. Clement’s presented our first Covid-19 Outreach fundraiser check to the People’s Pantry at the United Methodist Church, Rancho Cordova, in the amount of $2425.00. Thank you, congregation and friends of St. Clement’s! This will enable the pantry to do so much more to serve those in our community who are food insecure. The check was met with cheers and physically distanced hugs from the People’s Pantry Volunteers. Pictures on Facebook and the website will follow. As one UMC church volunteer said, this is Interfaith cooperation at its best.
We will continue to raise funds for this cause through St. Clement’s. You can donate online through Realm, or by check. Much gratitude to Terry Sandhoff and Kent Ransom who make this collection possible! We are also continuing to collect donations for HART and Episcopal Relief and Development, reflected in the updated figure above. We plan to make an additional donation to the People’s Pantry after our goal date of June 1. We will also present checks to HART and Episcopal Relief and Development at that time.

The Rev. Anne McKeever, Diocesan Recovery Facilitator
Isolation is perilous for people in recovery. We learn that our sobriety depends upon keeping connected to sober people, being accountable to others, being of service to others.
Some people in recovery attend one or more meetings a day. Many people attend several meetings a week.
With quarantines, self-isolation, and lockdowns spreading in response to the COVID-19 virus, and with many in-person support groups ceasing to meet as ordered, other sinister viruses can spread as well: powerlessness, loneliness, anxiety, fear, shame, all the hurts and harms that fuel addictive behaviors.
As our Diocesan Recovery facilitator, I’ve begun compiling this collection of online/virtual recovery support resources. It’s just the beginning. Please share with me resources you find, too.
Please share these resources with your congregations and friends. Learn who might need frequent check-ins by phone. Let’s work together to stay as healthy as possible in these tender times.
