Lenten Project Update
The Community Outreach Committee of Saint Matthias Episcopal Church, located in downtown Clermont, recently culminated a Lenten project, which raised funds to provide summer camp scholarships for the Boys and Girls Club of Lake County.
Father James Dorn presented the award of ten scholarships to Tracy Jones, Boys and Girls Club Unit Director, along with Ann Forehand, the Lenten project co-chair. Several children from the Boys and Girls Club were also on site at Saint Matthias for the presentation.
The committee began the annual project four years ago, raising funds at the time to provide scholarships for two children. Ann Forehand, the project co-chair, said, “This year’s funds are record high for our Lenten project offering. We are thrilled with the support we received from our parishioners. The mission of the Boys and Girls Club is one all of us at Saint Matthias highly value.”
The Boys and Girls Club summer camp opportunity provides youth a chance for continued learning and growth within a safe environment through caring, positive relationships with adults.
For more information on the summer camp program contact Unit Director Tracy Jones at 352-394-9840.
Long Range Planning Committee
The Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) completed a survey, which showed that most of us are in favor of growing St. Matthias and making it a welcoming place for Episcopalians and anyone interested in joining a community where God is worshiped, the Bible is preached and taught, and where people genuinely care for each other.
There are some long-term developments that caught the attention of the committee.
You can see the survey results here.
