Donation to “So They Can.”
Last week on 22nd of May the Education and Social Committee donated $850 to “So They Can,” to help them in their efforts to educate, support and keep the community safe. Some of funds will be used for Education packs, masks, and water stations. Part of the donation will be used for simple screens for the birthing rooms to provide privacy for the mothers during delivery. This would encourage larger numbers to come to the clinic for delivery. Which would provide a better health outcome for the baby and the mother. Currently lack of privacy, challenges many cultural norms, & keeps women away. This gift to so they can tie up with the beautiful jumpers knitted by the congregation which is so loved by the mums







Litany of the Holy Spirit – (also set to music)
the first three verses of the Litany by Robert Herrick (1591-1674)

In the hour of my distress,
When temptations me oppress,
And when I my sins confess,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me!

When I lie within my bed,
Sick in heart and sick in head,
And with doubts discomforted,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me!

When the house doth sigh and weep,
And the world is drowned in sleep,
Yet mine eyes the watch do keep,
Sweet Spirit, comfort me!

EASTWOOD CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY AID
Did you notice the dip in the temperature during the week? Your help is very welcome in building stocks of canned, warming foods which will help those less fortunate than ourselves. Also remember that many lonely people depend on their four-footed or bird friends for company and those need feeding too.
