Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘it will be happier.’”
Alfred Lord Tennyson

“Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.”
Heller Keller

“There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”

“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

Proposed 2021 St. John’s Budget

From Janet Patching, Treasurer:

I also put two explanatory asterisks on the slides for the questions asked today.

I had the Music expenses mixed up.

Non Clergy OTHER is the recording and production fee we pay for our music.

Additional Liturgical expense is where the Zoom fees are allocated which is why that was over budget for 2020. That is noted on the relevant slides inside the presentation also.

For a copy of the revised budget, send your email request to JanetPatching@gmail.com.

Important Message from
Sr. Warden, Dick Kraemer

The Vestry’s Schedule and planning as approved at the 12/8/2021 Vestry Meeting for the open budget conversation 1/10/2021 and Annual Meeting on 1/31/2021.

Due to our reliance on ZOOM during this pandemic, there is a suggested change for the process to be followed at our Annual Meeting. Dick Kraemer and Father Rick proposed that due to the difficulties of using Zoom for official voting meetings, that we alter our process for the Annual Meeting 2021. It is still necessary in order to meet the legal and canonical requirements for Annual Meetings, as well as keep in place our customary open conversations of the budget, we should hold the meetings with the following modifications:

– 1/5 Vestry Meeting Approval of a tentative budget for parish review.

– 1/10/21 Parish conversation (not an annual meeting) via Zoom to review the tentative budget. During this discussion Janet and others will present the tentative 2021 budget. There will also be a presentation of the timeline and modified process to be followed by this year’s annual meeting. A presentation of the plan for the vestry to stay in place for 2021{or until the Annual Meeting can take place in person}, eliminating the elections this January. All current members will stay in place until there is an Annual Congregational Meeting this summer.

– At a special vestry meeting to be held on 1/26/2021, the budget will once again be reviewed, all input from the congregation will be considered and a 2021 budget will be approved.

– The Annual Meeting will be called to Order after the 1/31/2021 service followed by adjournment until our congregation can meet in person. When we reconvene, we will complete the required items, i.e., receiving the yearly budget, electing new vestry members or choosing to extend the current members seats until January 2022, choose diocese delegates; as well as hear reports from the Rector, Wardens and Committee Chairs as needed.

We look forward to an open conversation on 1/10/2021 as the Vestry gathers the views of the congregational membership. In advance, I wish to thank Bill and Max for their successful Stewardship Drive and Janet and her financial wizards for the tireless work on putting together a 2021 proposed budget. Also, thanks to the Vestry members and our guests for attending our regular meetings and the many special meetings.

Lamoille Community House


We are expecting an extremely busy season this year for a couple of reasons:

  • Unemployment in our community is at an all-time high.
  • Individuals who may have been able to temporarily stay with family or friends may not be welcome during COVID-19.
  • Seasonal shelters in other parts of northern and central Vermont are not reopening this year, and we are already receiving referrals from outside of Lamoille County.
  • Hotel vouchers will only be available if shelter beds are full.

So, as we get ready for the winter ahead, we have made some important changes at the shelter to ensure that our guests and staff remain safe, healthy, and well cared for.

Most importantly, we are working hard to keep our doors open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In past years, we have closed the shelter during the day and provided guests with transportation to Morrisville for appointments. Given that many of these buildings and services will be closed for in-person meetings, we have applied for a permit to remain open 24/7. Stay tuned!
Physical Space
As a communal space, we have had to make some changes to ensure physical distancing. Each individual sleeping area will be separated by a plastic divider. In addition to a clean bed, each guest will have a small table for taking meals within their space. We will not have a communal table for meals, but will instead have individual seating, appropriately spaced in the common area so that guests may watch TV or converse with one another. The kitchen will be accessible by only one guest at a time, with strict cleaning protocols after each use.

Masks Required
Guests and staff will be required to wear masks indoors at all times EXCEPT when they are in their individual sleeping area. Social distancing will be encouraged at all times.

Meals: Dinner Donations on Hold
Regrettably, we are not able to accept dinner donations at the moment. We are so appreciative of the many people who took time to prepare and share meals with guests and hope to resume as soon as it is safe to do so!
In the meantime, guests will be provided with three, nourishing meals per day and access to any leftover food we have available.

Wish List
Our wish list looks a little different this year too! Here are a few things we could use for the 2020-2021 season:

  • 50 clear plastic shower curtains (to be used as dividers between sleeping areas)
  • 50 new or used coffee thermos/ travel coffee cups
  • 15 TV dinner tables
  • Grocery gift cards (Hannaford, Price Chopper)
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Paper plates
  • Paper bowls
  • Plastic utensils
  • Napkins
  • Plastic cups
  • Coffee cups
  • Toilet cleaner
  • Disinfectant spray
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Floor cleaner
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Vinegar
  • Coffee and filters
  • Book clip lights
  • Laundry detergent pods

If you are able to donate any of these items, please contact Kim at kanetsberger@lamoilleshelter.org. Thank you!

We are 100% confident that we can create a warm, safe, and welcoming place for our guests even given the restrictions of COVID-19. It’s not going to be the same this year (what is??), but we will rally around our neighbors who need help and serve them with the kindness, dignity, and respect they deserve.

Zoom Step-by-Step Instructions

Zoom is a “web-based” program that is fairly simple to use for video-conferences. You do not need to have Zoom downloaded on your computer – no software required.

We invite you to log in at 9:00 am. Morning Prayer will begin at 10:00am.

Directions if you are on a computer
(If you want to join by phone, please see instructions below.)

Please follow these steps to help you log on and join in worship on your home computer (desktop, laptop, IPad).

1. Press the link (blue letters) where it reads “Join Zoom Meeting”

2. You will see a new webpage open on your computer. Do not worry, this is normal.

3. You will see a smaller box appear on your screen that reads, “Join with computer Audio”. Press that button. If you have a webcam, there will also be a prompt that reads, “Join with computer video.” If you want to be present via video, then press that button.

4. You should then see yourself and others in small picture frames. This is where you need to be.

If this process is not clear, or as happens on some computer systems, the process described above is not what you are experiencing, please call one of the folks below for assistance.

Nat Kinney 802-730-7574
Roger Nicholls 603-236-1120
Fr. Rick 802-760-7787
Zarina 802-535-7117

Next steps once you are in the video “Church” to help everyone focus and engage in our worship.

1. Once you are in the “room” say hello. Once people have greeted you, please press the “Mute” button on the bottom, left hand corner of the screen. Please leave the mute button on until Fr. Rick asks you to turn it off. Don’t worry, he will!

2. The bulletin for the service will also be seen on your screen once the service begins. It is designed in our traditional manner – all bold-faced text is for everyone to say together.

3. We will not be singing or have music.

4. If you wish to speak during the announcement time, please raise your hand and Fr. Rick will invite you to speak.

5. There is no capability to share the bulletin with individuals on the telephone. You will know some of the prayers and responses, so please join in as you are able.

If you have a camera, you can turn it on so the group can see you, but you can also keep it off. Please respect each person’s choice.
