We can all use some hope…

…which is represented by an anchor in Christian iconography.  Nice nautical imagery for a stained glass window in Gloucester. I expect we’ll be hearing a lot about hope as this election year goes forward.

"Spes" means "Hope" in Latin

Wherever you find your hope, share it with someone who needs it.  Hope grows when we share it, and the more people are inspired by it, the better chance it has of coming true.

Preparations for the Christmas Fair at St. Ann’s

The Women’s Guild is getting ready for the big Christmas Fair at St. Ann’s Church in Holy Family Parish (as announced on this blog). Here are some photos of the preparations, and some shots of merchandise:

The tables run almost the full length of the hall, and many are already almost full

Bea Ciaramitaro is the organizer, who has been working hard to bring it all together

All sorts of things are available, including secular winter items...

...and religious articles for year-round use...

...and religious Christmas decorations...

...all set up by the Women's Guild elves! (Here, setting up the jewelry table)

They are climbing ladders to be sure that everything is of the "highest" quality, even the hall decorations!

There are also religious and secular books, and much more! Come check it out on Saturday, Nov. 19, 9AM-2PM, in the Parish Hall under St. Ann’s Church, at 60 Prospect St. in Gloucester!
