organization at St. David’s with a variety of knitting projects for the parish, Austin,

scarves, and 50 mittens, were knitted and crocheted by the St. Agnes Guild and
were given to the women neigbors of Trinity Center. We also make prayer shawls,
leprosy bandages, and baby caps for those in need. Join us in this endeavor, if you
like to knit or crochet. If you don’t know how, we will teach you. We meet the last
Saturday of the month from 10 a.m.-noon in the Guild Room. Contact Judith
Cayton at [email protected] for questions.

Youth will leave on March 15 after the 9 a.m. services and head to Mustang Island
in Port Aransas, TX for the Spring Youth Pilgrimage. We will return on March 18
in time to enjoy SXSW. We will be joined by the Rev. Katie Wright. It will be a
joint, yet separate, retreat so that both age groups can experience age-appropriate
conversation and fellowship. Cost is $175 / youth with some scholarships available.
Registrations are available online at My St. David’s. (Please be sure to select the
correct retreat for your student.) Space is limited. The deadline to register is 5 p.m.

A weekly digest of parish announcements

VOLUME 20, NO. 3
STEWARDSHIP UPDATE
Last week, parishioners responded very positively to our leadership’s request for
parishioners to make a pledge or increase their current pledge. As a result of this
request, 28 new pledges and 41 increases were received. We are now at $1,724,191
of our $2 million goal. If one of our 435 pledges is yours, thank you very much for
your faith in our future together.
For this year’s operating budget we are targeting $2 million in pledges, the level
identified by our Vestry and Finance Committee as the amount required to prevent
budget cuts and allowing our parish to continue the important ministries upon
which we and our community depend. This includes music and worship, outreach,
children and youth, adult formation, and much more.
We are now in need of $275,809 in new or expanded pledges to continue the level
of excellence in ministry and mission that we have come to expect and depend
upon. Our Vestry will set the budget on January 20 based upon the amount of
pledges received.
We invite everyone to participate. If 200 households give or give an additional
$1,000, and 200 give or give an additional $500, than we will maintain what we
believe God has called us to do and be.
This is a critical moment at a time when we are so needed in our community and
in one another’s lives. Pledge what you can. Let’s share in keeping St. David’s as the
“face of Christ” in downtown Austin.
If you have questions on our budget and pledge campaign, please go to Sumners
Hall following this worship service. Members of the Finance Committee will have
a table set up and welcome your questions, thoughts, and ideas.

Elizabeth Shaped Our Christian Path”: Join us January 31 and February 1 as we learn
about how St. Paul and Queen Elizabeth shaped our Christian path from our speaker,
the Rev. Dr. Minka Shura Sprague. In the beginning, Paul translated our ways into
ways that became a new creation; his words set us free. When the time had fully come,
Elizabeth led us to the place where we could always faithfully search for the best human
effort in our time. He told us to “walk by the Spirit.” She told us to pick up our prayer
books, make communion, and go home; to quit worrying about agreeing with one
another. A full schedule and registration is available at www.stdave.org. The Eckhardt
Mission Series is offered at no cost. Dinner is a suggested $10, but please eat even if you
cannot pay. Child care is provided free with advanced reservations to Laura Faulk at
