This month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

We are particularly mindful of the many people whose lives have been touched by domestic violence.
 Over the coming months you'll hear more about this topic as we partner with Safe with Faith,
which empowers congregations to take part in ending domestic violence and supporting victims and survivors.
SafeLink hotline: 877-785-2020
For more information, contact our rector or
parishioners Diana Isbrandtsen and Anne Marie Hunter.

Refugee Immigration Ministry

has our first guest, a young mother and her toddler daughter, from Haiti. St. Andrew's, in cooperation with Temple Emmanuel, is supporting them as they get settled here.
 Watch for information about ways you can help.

Meet our newest staff person/ Godly Play Teacher

We are so excited to have the opportunity to introduce our newest staff member,
Nikki Hildreth. We know how important it is to have a consistent adult in an early childhood classroom.
We needed someone who could be here every Sunday and build a relationship with the children and their families.
Nikki is dedicated and excited about working with children. Also she has a great energy, which is essential for working with young children.
 She lives in Marblehead and her primary job is as a caretaker, mostly the elderly. She knows some of the families here as she grew up with their children,
 such as the Coffin's. Some of you may know her mother, Devon Hildreth. Nikki is a cousin of the Wysor's,
 who have a child in that class. Please introduce yourself and welcome her to our team. She will be available to chat during coffee hour.
