Dear Beautiful St. A’s Church, 
As I watched the explosions from Lebanon, my heart reaches out to those killed and injured. In the words of Pope Francis: “Let us pray for the victims of the explosions in Beirut and for their families; and let us pray for Lebanon so that, through the dedication of all its social, political and religious elements, it might face this extremely tragic and painful moment.” 
The leaders of the census have decided to end the count a month early, on Sept 30. Studies show only about 63% of Americans have filled out the census. Please fill out the census. The Union of Black Episcopalians has encouraged all its members (and everyone) to fill out the census today! 
It looks like COVID-19 cases are shrinking (again). Please keep wearing your mask, washing your hands and maintaining wise physical distances. 
This Sunday, April 9, 2020 is the 100th Birthday of Mr. Floyd O’Connor. If you wish to send a card: 3002 Hardeman St, Hayward, CA 94541. We will spend time during announcements honoring Mr. O’Connor and the joy he brings to our church and our choir!

In the morning:
This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.
In the evening:
Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend the sick, Lord Christ; give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pity the afflicted, shield the joyous; and all for your love's sake. Amen.



Happy 100th Birthday Mr. Floyd O’Connor!
