A Note of Gratitude

On behalf of your brothers and sisters in Flint, I want to thank all of you for your generous donation of safe drinking water at the closing Jazz Mass of our convention. It was a joy to see the altar dwarfed by all the gallon jugs and bottles. As someone noted: “Water, water everywhere, and not a drop of lead!”

Donated water surrounds the altar at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Flint after the closing Eucharist of the 21st Diocesan Convention.

Thanks also for your monetary donations, which will help to buy more water and water filters.

Although Flint has switched back to Detroit water, it will take time for it to completely flush out the Flint system, and even longer to get rid of all the lead that has leached out of our ancient water delivery system.

Flint will still need clean, safe drinking water for some time. So we are asking for your continued support. If you can, please deliver water to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, or send checks made out to St. Paul’s with “Water” in the memo line to 711 South Saginaw St., Flint, MI, 48502.

And thanks also to all of you who signed the letter to our U.S. Senators asking them to support the funding of research to find a cure and effective treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease. Approximately 130 letters are on their way to Congress.

Peace, and Blessing,

Deacon Sharon Naughton
