A P.O. Box for the treasurer and plans for a “reopening”—redux

In an effort to prevent the theft of checks mailed to the church, we have opened a Post Office Box for the exclusive use of the treasurer. In future, please mail your offerings to: The Treasurer, St Stephen’s Anglican Church, P.O. Box 6161, Timonium, MD 21094. All other mail should be sent to the parish at our street address.

We have also learned that it is unlikely the missing checks have been stolen from the mail box in front of the church. The Postal Inspectors have posted notices on official U.S. Mail boxes in the area warning that mail has been stolen from them. The safest course would, thus, be to use only the mail boxes located inside Post Offices.

Meanwhile, when Governor Larry Hogan permits the state to gradually begin returning to normal many restrictions will remain in place. We expect, for example, be obliged to monitor attendance at services to maintain “social distancing” among non-family members.

This might present problems at our 9.15 AM Eucharist. The rule might also make running the Sunday School difficult as children generally like to be in close contact with one another .

Because of these constraints, we believe it best to celebrate the Eucharist at all three Sunday services until we are able to resume our normal worship schedule. This will enable parishioners who usually attend the 9.15 AM Eucharist to consider occasionally worshipping at the 8.00 AM or 11.00 AM services.

We will also continue for the foreseeable future the video recordings of Feast Day and Sunday Eucharists. These are posted on the parish website (, Youtube, and Isaac the Eagle’s Facebook page by 9:00 AM every Sunday. You’ll find them at at the bottom of the Home Page, under “Recent Blog Posts.”

The midweek broadcast talks by the rector that we began in late April can be found on the website and will be continued every Wednesday or Thursday for the foreseeable future. God bless you all, GPH✠ & JPN✠
