A message from Sara, Rector, to the Holy T. Parishioners:

Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:39, 40 that when we visit the sick or those in prison we are visiting Him.  Chaplain Sylvia Moseley at the Dayton Correctional Institution told me that many indigent women at the prison have no family to put money into their accounts to purchase basic toiletries that we all take for granted.  They are dependent on organizations to donate these items, which the Chaplain then distributes. 

Would you please donate these needed toiletries, which can be purchased from Dollar Tree:  shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, lotion, soap or body wash, feminine napkins and tampons?  We will be collecting these items from June 10th through July 8th in boxes in the Narthex. 

Also, I invite any parishioners interested in having a tour of the Dayton Correctional Institution when we deliver the toiletries to contact me:  We will visit the prison later in July on a Monday afternoon.
