    Another Loss In Our Parish

    Drue’s mother, Jane Miller, passed away suddenly but very peacefully yesterday afternoon just before I arrived to spend the night on my way back to Danville. I found her sitting in her favorite chair where she loved to spend time each afternoon - watching a movie, reading and listening to classical music on NPR. Her faithful dog Norm was by her side.
    Needless to say, I will be delayed several days getting back to Danville and will do our Sunday morning Zoom Morning Prayer from here. I’ve been in contact with Jennifer Hooper and will be in contact with Evie Jackson, our Sr. Warden, when she returns from vacation this weekend. The daily operation of the parish continues.
    May Jane’s soul and the souls of all the faithful departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
    God’s Peace & Blessings,

    A Loss In Our Parish
    As some of you already know Jack Turner passed away Monday morning (June 22, 2020) at home in Raleigh.

    Fr. Jon has been in contact with Nan Turner and their son Jack. Final arrangements are still in the works. Please know that the obituary on the Townes Funeral Home website referring to an August date are incorrect. We’ll send out the final arrangements once they are set. Thank you.
    May Jack's soul and the souls of all the departed,
    through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    The Rev. Jon R. Anderson

     Umbrellas Needed: If you would like to help someone less fortunate, please read on.  The Disciples Dinner and Lunch guests are in need of umbrellas.  We are asking parishioners to donate new or gently used umbrellas of any size.  We noticed that there were none being used during our rainy season. If the weather is wet, our guests are waiting six feet apart in the rain. The pandemic social distancing policy creates a problem since we do not have a sheltered area large enough for our 20-40 guests for Disciples Dinners or Lunches.  Please bring umbrellas to the parish lobby anytime during office hours,  Monday - Thursday between 9:00am - 2:00pm.

    Photos Wanted: We are looking for photos featuring the people of Epiphany.  These photos can be of anything, as long as the work and community of Epiphany is highlighted.  We do have the capability to scan printed photos, digital photos can be submitted to
