From the Rector’s Desk
Dear People of God,
"Grace to you and peace from
God our Father and from the Lord
Jesus Christ."
For many years leaders of the
parish have known of our need to
have more space in order to fulfill
the mission to which God has
called us. The greatest evidence of
this need is seen on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings,
when our programming is at our
facility's maximum usage. Space is
simply not available to provide the
kind of programming which is necessary for a large and growing parish. Likewise, an adequate way to
deal both with liturgies that call for
a more intimate setting as well as
overflow crowds for our larger services is not available. Additionally,
on a daily basis, a growing staff has
had to make do with office space
that was designed many years ago
for a much smaller staff.
Our last two strategic plans, the
first of which was developed in
2008, placed the need for expanding our facility at the top of the list
of priorities. The challenge has
been in deciding where to put new
space on our relatively small plot of
land. One answer has been to put
a two-story structure on our existing "footprint" on the Ringling
Boulevard side of our property.
After much prayerful consideration,
that possibility has been abandoned for several reasons. It would
probably destroy the two beautiful
gardens as well as the large beautiful trees in that area. Possible zon-
ing restrictions on
Palm Avenue, requiring us to erect
retail space on
Palm, is another
reason to abandon that idea.
The good news
is that the Vestry
has decided to
move
forward
with a plan to put
a new administrative and classroom building where
the staff parking lot is located, with
a new chapel for smaller services,
potential new services, and overflow crowds by the bell tower. We
have contracted with Studio Suarez, the firm that designed our terrace addition on Palm Avenue in
2011, to develop a detailed plan
for this expansion. The plan will not
only give us a firm idea of what the
new buildings will look like and include, but also will tell us what
these structures will cost. The plan
will be based on what various
groups and individuals in the parish
who use our facility regularly have
said their needs are, and also on
what we project our needs will be
in the future.
At the same time, the Vestry
has asked our Strawberry Hill Committee, under the leadership of
Andy Dorr, to find the best and
highest use for our Strawberry Hill
property. Strawberry Hill is the
property owned by the parish on
the opposite corner of Palm and
Ringling. That committee should
have a plan for that
property by the end
of the year.
The Vestry is now
dealing with this plan
in one way or another
at most meetings.
Therefore, I wanted
you all to know where
things are in our planning process. I am
excited that we are as
far along as we are at
this point, and I hope you are,
too! We should be able to show
drawings of the plans in the near
future. If you have any specific
questions, ask any member of the
Vestry or the clergy, and we will
be happy to answer them, or if we
don’t know the answer, to find
the answer for you.
See you in church!
Faithfully yours,

This class will not meet during

Investing in Redeemer: Giving Changes Lives
Investing in the mission and ministry of the Church of the Redeemer changes your life and thousands
of lives around you. But don’t take our word for it; take it from those who invest year after year in the
work of the parish:
“We give because we love the church, we are confident the resources will be put to good use, and
because it’s our duty.” – Mr. Phil Pasho
“We invest in Redeemer because Redeemer has invested so much in us; our clergy and leaders tirelessly minister the Good News to us and to our family, and we are richly blessed. We give out of
thankfulness for all that God has done for us through Redeemer!” – Anonymous
“I give because the Church of the Redeemer has encouraged and inspired me to be spiritually engaged through sermons, the Eucharist, hymns, classes, and fellowship; to truly follow the Word of
our Lord. When I follow the teachings that I have been taught, I am truly blessed.” – Mrs. Pat
Mudgett
You, too, can join more than 1,000 people who invest in the work of
the parish by visiting redeemersarasota.org or by mailing a check to:
Church of the Redeemer
222 South Palm Avenue
Sarasota, Florida 34236
If you have questions or would like more information about
stewardship and giving, please contact

Development, by calling 941.955.4263 or

Heart to Heart Book Club 2015-16 Selections
The Church of the Redeemer Heart-to-Heart Book Club is a group of women who gather monthly
to discuss a literary selection. Books are chosen to be diverse and thought-provoking while expanding
our views on the issues of the world, as well as to enrich our lives and have relevance to our faith
journeys. As a friendly and welcoming Christian community, we enjoy fellowship with one another and
with parish members’ guests.
The Church of the Redeemer Heart to Heart Book Club is ready to begin another year. We meet each
month on the first Monday in Gillespie Hall. Our meetings begin at 9:00 AM with coffee and refreshments
and usually end around 11:00.
Please join us for an exciting book club year!
You may contact Linda Robinson [914.2688] [email protected]
if you would like to be a part of the book club.
Heart to Heart Book Club is sponsoring its 5th All-Parish Book Club Dinner Meeting for Redeemer
members and their friends. This evening meeting in January for men and women will begin with a dinner,
and a 1 hour book discussion will follow.
Here are the selections we will read during 2015-2016 and the meeting dates:

TRUTH—STRANGER THAN FICTION?
THE WARMTH OF OTHER SUNS: THE EPIC STORY
OF AMERICA’S GREAT MIGRATION
ISABEL WILKERSON
“The Warmth of Other Suns is a brilliant and stirring epic, the first book to cover the full half-century of the Great
Migration… Wilkerson combines impressive research…with great narrative and literary power. Ms. Wilkerson does for
the Great Migration what John Steinbeck did for the Okies in his fiction masterpiece, The Grapes of Wrath; she
humanizes history, giving it emotional and psychological depth.”—John Stauffer, Wall Street Journal
5 OCTOBER
THE DAY THE WORLD CAME TO TOWN: 9/11 IN GANDER,
NEWFOUNDLAND
JIM DeFEDE
“Journalist Defede calls our attention to a sidelight of the events of September 11, when the town of Gander (pop.
10,000) was overwhelmed by more than 6,500 air travelers grounded when U.S. airspace was shut down.”—
Publishers weekly
2 NOVEMBER
THE MOCKINGBIRD NEXT DOOR: LIFE WITH HARPER LEE
MARJA MILLS
“In 2001, Chicago Tribune journalist Marja Mills traveled to Monroeville, Alabama, in search of something that no other
journalist had been able to land: an interview with the reclusive Harper Lee. Instead, she got an interview with her older sister, Alice…”—Chris Schluep
7 DECEMBER
WHERE THE WIND LEADS: A REFUGEE FAMILY’S MIRACULOUS
STORY OF LOSS, RESCUE, AND REDEMPTION
VINH CHUNG
“The account of Dr. Chung and his family will inspire you to believe in second chances and miracles and the God who
gives them both.”—Max Lucado, New York Times best-selling author

THE GIRLS OF ATOMIC CITY: THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE

SKIRTING HERESY:
THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MARGERY KEMPE

Steve Forbes, editor, Forbes magazine
4 APRIL
THE DESTINY OF THE REPUBLIC: A TALE OF MADNESS,
MEDICINE, AND THE MURDER OF A PRESIDENT
CANDICE MILLARD
"Fascinating. . . . Gripping. . . . Stunning. . . . The haunting tale of how a man who never meant to seek the presidency
found himself swept into the White House. . . . Millard shows the Garfield legacy to be much more important than most
of her readers knew it to be." —The New York Times
2 MAY
THE APPRENTICE: MY LIFE IN THE KITCHEN
JACQUES PEPIN
“In this fast-moving and often touching memoir, Pepin recounts his journey from the kitchen of his mother's humble
restaurant in rural France after World War II to his current position as author of 21 cookbooks, star of 13 PBS cooking
shows and dean of special programs at the French Culinary Institute in New York City.”—Publishers Weekly

What's Happening in Redeemer's Hispanic Ministry?
There's a new sense of excitement these days in the Hispanic Ministry department. What's it all about? Much of the
growth is due to Fr. Mario’s faithful and tireless pastoral calls and work. There are also some other important reasons for our new enthusiasm. Here are some.
One,, attendance and enthusiasm are up. Palm and Easter Sunday’s were great with lots of people. Mother’s Day
One
was also a large and wonderful success! On Palm Sunday, Fr. Robinson was the Principal Celebrant and as always he
was great. After Mass, Gillespie Hall was filled with tables and people at Brunch and excited parishioners: young and
middle and old alike. Easter was a joyous occasion with many First Communicants
and newly Baptized members from the Saturday Easter Eve Service, all honored as
one in the Eucharist Service and then in Gillespie Hall. The Clergy and Eucharistic
Ministers continue working hard in the Mass. Both
Padre Mario+ and Padre Dick+ make regular pastoral calls to maintain and grow our Sunday attendance and enthusiasm.
Two, Redeemer's Hispanic Ministry is unique in The
Diocese in that it has: (1) An extraordinary Musical
Group (headed up for years by Jack and Jane
Thompson) and now perhaps the best that it has
ever been, professionally and musically. We are blessed to have in this group both
professional and life-long Church singers. (2) The Sunday School is directed by Fred
and Juanita Erazo, Mrs. Molly Ann Lampert, and Marcia and Monica Miller ("The
Twins"). We are also working on bringing in two new Hispanic Young People’s Group
leaders. Together, as a team, they bring almost one hundred years of teaching experience and love which they freely give out week after week to all the children, youth, and congregation.
Three,, we have recently renewed and revitalized "The Hispanic Commission." This group is the real Leadership
Three
Group (“The Engine”) for our entire ministry. In addition to regular ongoing activities, 4 Major goals are set for the
next eight months of 2015: (A) On Saturday, October 3rd, REDEEMER’S 1st FAMILY LATINO FESTIVAL including Musical events, classes and instructions; Dance classes and presentations; Art displays and classes with hands on activities; Food; Events, Contests and Games for all. These activities will be directed and hosted by many professional
members and Priests of the Redeemer Latino Congregation; (B) An Adult
Adult--Youth
Youth--Children
Children--Family Spiritual Retreat
(Friday night-Sunday Noon at DaySpring or some other selected site) as was successfully held in years past;
(C) Continued food distribution program on a monthly basis; (D)
One more popular and successful Saturday Bingo Day Party in June.
Commission Members are:
are María Carolina Albán, María Elena Benavides, Myrna Correa, Alicia Cruz, Antonia Cruz, Reinaldo Enchausteguia, Edwin Girón, Luis y Cecilia Guzmán, Mireya Juarez,
Daniela Lopez, Antonio Leal Olmedo, Guadalupe Pozas, Angeles
Radford, Padre Mario Castro+, Padre Richard Lampert+, Enith Marin (At Large). This is the strongest group of Latino Leaders that Re-
deemer has ever had.
Other Noteworthy News: Graduating High School Seniors include:
Victor Galarza at Bayshore High, Mirka Gonzalez at Booker High School, and Olga Correa graduating #7 in her class
with high honors at Sarasota High.
The Second Diocese of Southwest Florida Hispanic Cursillo had:14
had: Redeemer leaders and participants (the largest
group of any Parish).
What's Happening in Redeemer’s Hispanic Ministry program? A great, great deal! THANKS BE TO GOD!

THE CHURCH OF THE REDEEMER GIFT & BOOK SHOPPE
Summer Shop hours: Wednesday 10:00 AM -12:30 PM, Sunday 10:00 AM -11:30 AM
All profits benefit the Rector’s Discretionary Fund
DALE TIEMAN PRIEPRIE-DIEUX NOW ON SALE IN REDEEMER’S BOOK & GIFT SHOPPE!
“A prieprie-dieu (French: literally, "pray [to] God", plural prie-dieux) is a type of prayer desk primarily intended for private
devotional use, but may also be found in churches. It is a small, ornamental wooden desk furnished with a thin,
sloping shelf for books or hands, and a kneeler. This…is useful for devotions, such as the
Rosary…, or for private, non-liturgical prayer.”—quoted from Wikipedia
Your Book & Gift Shoppe has in stock four beautiful, hand-crafted prie-dieux
created in the wood-working shop of the late Dale Tieman of Wausaukee,
Wisconsin. Mr. Tieman once supplied prie-dieux to be sold from Nashotah
House’s Mission Bookstore. It was in the store that we became acquainted with
his work. Each prie-dieu is unique and is constructed of solid hardwood. The
kneeling cushion is covered with needlepoint lovingly stitched by Redeemer’s
needlepoint committee. The prie-dieu adjusts both vertically and horizontally to
fit you comfortably.
These are the hardwoods used by Mr. Tieman and the stain finishes he applied:
Maple wood with cherry stain
Ash with chestnut stain
Oak with natural stain
Walnut with chestnut stain
Come into the gift shop to see one of these exquisite kneelers.
It will be a spiritually-enriching addition to your home and a one-of-a-kind work of art.
Our online stationery shoppe at www.redeemer.printswell.com was
created to be the hot spot online destination for trendy and vibrant stationery and photo cards. We know that stationery creates a very special
memory for those personal celebrations, and that's why our website has
top of the line designers to pair with quality printing methods. For more information contact [email protected]
All proceeds from the sales go to the Rector’s
Benevolence Fund, which supports local
missions.

Men’s Book Group, “Books and Beyond”
The Church of the Redeemer
222 South Palm Avenue
Sarasota, Florida 3423634236-6799
On Tuesday evening, 23 June, the book group of the Men of Redeemer,
“Books and Beyond,” will meet to discuss Ronald C. White, Jr.’s recent biography of Lincoln, entitled simply A. Lincoln: A Biography
Biography. James McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom, mentions two unique strengths of
White’s biography: its focus on the persuasive power of
Lincoln’s speeches and writings, and his “analysis of Lincoln’s evolving religious convictions, which shaped the
core of his effective leadership, his moral integrity.” The
book has been described as “an instant [Lincoln] classic
for the twenty-first century.” The meeting to discuss it will
take place in Gillespie Hall, at 7:15 PM.
Looking ahead, May 2015 marks the 70th anniversary
of the end of the Second World War in Europe. Over the
summer break in July and August, the reading selection for
the group reflects that milestone, in the
choice of Michael Dobbs’ riveting account of the period
spanning the final months of World War II -- Six Months
in 1945: From World War to Cold War. That period saw
the increasing strains in the relationships of the Allies as
the War ground to an end in Europe, the dawn of the nuclear age, and the beginning of the Cold War. Dobbs
chronicles the critical events between the Yalta Conference in February 1945 and the Potsdam Conference in
July 1945, which set the stage for a division of the European continent that lasted until the fall of the Berlin Wall
in 1989. The book has been acclaimed as “a vividly rendered story of individual and national interests in fierce competition at a
seminal moment in history.” The meeting to discuss it will take place at a
date in September to be announced.
