Temple de Hirsch Sinai
Saint Mark’s and Temple De Hirsch Sinai are joining together to recruit Bone Marrow Transplant donors.
This fall, we need ten volunteers to assist in registering potential donors at Temple De Hirsch during Yom Kippur. Members of the synagogue will conduct a drive at Saint Mark’s on the first Sunday of Lent. Commitment involves a brief training session in late September and assisting in registering potential donors at Temple De Hirsch on Saturday, October 4. Contribute time to a ministry that will save lives by increasing the world wide Bone Marrow Transplant Donor Registries.
Further information about the program at www.giftoflife.org.

Sunday, October 5, 8 am , 9 am, 11 am services
On the first Sunday in October , we celebrate God’s gift of creation, particularly in our animal friends. Animal friends are invited to join their humans in church at the 8 am, 9 am, and 11 am liturgies. Stuffed animals are also welcome as are photos of pets who would not find coming to church a blessed experience. At the end of each liturgy, priests will be available to offer your pet a blessing.
