Fire devastates the Southern Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Sweetwater, Tennessee

Dear brothers and sisters, I have sad news this morning.

I have need for urgent prayer for our Ecclesiastical Communion Affiliate Church, The Southern Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Sweetwater, Tennessee. They have suffered a major loss early this morning via a destructive and devastating fire.

Their entire Church at this hour is a loss. Due to a possible electrical issue cased by the store unit next to them, which is where the fire started and spread, wiping out their storefront community chapel.

Fr. Jason Crowder+ is in contact with me and asking for your prayers at this time. So please keep this wonderful church family and man of God in your prayers and lets help them in whatever way we can, showing our love and support as Christ leads us to do.

I will bring you updates as I get them to keep you all informed. Thank you and bless you. And may God bless our Brothers and Sisters of the Southern Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Sweetwater, Tennessee in this sorrowful time.

Sincerely IHS and yours,
Patriarch +++Andrew M. B. Patrick

The Bishop’s Appeal

Bishops Appeal - 2015

 

Folks, the CCFM needs your financial support. We are at a cross roads with the ministry and are seeking individuals like yourself to help us to continue to grow and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around our Nation and the World. We are very aware that times are financially tough on most everyone and so it is, also on the CCFM as well.

We have been growing steadfastly for almost 7 years now. And gone through many changes as we have tried to grow and help others with what we do. We are unique in many aspects of our ministry work, unlike many other churches and ministries. One of our policies is to do that which other churches and organizations are not doing within the communities where the CCFM functions.

As many of you know none of our ministries or churches accept tithes from anyone. We work with the Poor, Homeless, Addicted, Mentally ill, the Disabled and the Elderly as well as the general communities in which we serve the Lords flock. And since we work with the poorest of our nation and world, we are finding it a major struggle to continue in the areas of administration and in supporting the most needy with aid of all types. Such as Bibles, Education equipment and materials, Food, Clothes, Medical supply’s and equipment. To name but a few.

We also know that there are many organizations that work in these areas that are also seeking your assistance. We know that this can be burdensome and taxing to say the least. Though I have asked in the past for your support on a number of programs, we have yet to receive any.

So I am asking now for you to pray on this matter and find it in your heart as God leads you to send us a love offering or even help us with a monthly contribution if you can and are will to do so.

In the almost 7 years of operating, we have received less than $1000.00 USD and though it is greatly appreciated and we truly did stretch it as far as it would go, it is not enough. Yet by our Lord’s Grace, we have been able to continue to work hard for you and expand the ministry.

Providing as much as we can when and where we can. Each of our clergy invest their own personal incomes to their ministries just as the CCFM does here at the global hq.

However, I stated, we are at a cross roads. We can continue to progress as we are or with your financial help and support, we can move onto the next phase and reach out and do so much more for so many more, here at home in our own nation and around the world.

We have made to process as easy as we can. That being, go to our Official Website and at the bottom of the Home Page, click on the Donate Button and you will be able to, Place your Love Offering through our Secure PayPal Account. It’s that easy. (www.celticcrossministry.com)

I wish to thank you for your time in reading this plea for your help and no matter what your decision, we truly do love and appreciate you and your interest in what we do and what we try to do for others.

May our Lord bless you abundantly and always keep you safe and healthy.

Sincerely IHS and yours,

After Father’s Sudden Death, Soldier Turns to the USO for A Crucial Assist

From: The Official USO Blog

Lifting the Spirits of America’s Troops & Their Families

Losing a parent can be devastating.

But losing a parent while on military duty adds a new set of obstacles that can overwhelm the most prepared soldier. Army Spc. Austin Hunsinger knows this all too well.

In December 2012, after learning his father suddenly passed way, Hunsinger — who was stationed in Fort Bragg, North Carolina — had to juggle an emergency leave request, funeral arrangements and booking last-minute flights all in a matter of hours.

When he finally arrived at the airport to go back to Rochester, New York, he was exhausted. He’d been up all night speaking with his family. So he sat down in the airport, fell asleep and missed his flight.

When Hunsinger woke up and realized what had happened, he knew he needed help fast. He headed straight to the Charlotte-Douglas International Airport USO. A little shaken up and worried he wouldn’t be able to get another flight in time for the funeral, Hunsinger explained what happened to the USO staff.

“The USO is always there and they’re always the first people I go to when I’m traveling,” Hunsinger said.

Within a matter of minutes, a USO volunteer helped Hunsinger re-book his flight to Rochester, getting him home just in time for his father’s services the next day.

“That was a really hectic time for me and [the USO] just relieved the stress at the right point,” Hunsinger said.

“[The USO had] perfect timing, for them to be there and for them to help me get a flight and to provide me with a place to rest my head [was great].”

USO Fort Drum‘s Allen Jones contributed to this story.
