Community Committee is looking for new Volunteers This committee has helped serve our members who need some extra help, whether that is with meals during an illness, rides to appointments, or other sorts of easy, non-professional help. Most of the work is done via e-mail, connecting people who are willing to help with those who need it. If you are interested, please contact Jill Mader.
Do you sing, play the guitar or the violin, either solo or in a group? We would like to showcase your talents! St A’s has music at both of our Sunday services. The Choir sings at the 9 AM service, and other musicians provide direction at the 10:30 AM Service. This is a special opportunity for parishioners to showcase their talents by singing and/or playing as an important contribution to our worship program. Please contact our organist and musical director, Laura Ravotti, at(914) 736-9015, see her after service. In addition,we are looking for new choir members for our 9 am choir - so anyone interested in participating in this way should also contact Laura.

Buy Grocery Shopping Cards and help support St. A's. One of the easy ways that you can support St. A's is by purchasing grocery cards to local stores. 5% of the face value of the card goes to St. A's, so for every $100 you spend, $5 goes to St. A's. Cards are available for Shoprite. Cards are usually sold during coffee hours, or may be purchased during office hours.
