Handmaiden Report January 2007

This year we added a new bell to our bell tower. It completes the missing tone between the large and small bells. The bell was named Adulphus and Chrismated on April 15, 2006 in memory of Adolph Harrison. A pair of headset ear protection was donated for use in the bell tower when ringing from the top. We had decent weather for Pascha bell ringing and the procession. Though we had a few glitches in communication ~ I’ll be a little more particular in whom I choose for the walkie talkie mate as it is critical to know what is going on and when. We have a written schedule for the current handmaidens for holding the Communion cloth and for cutting the bread. There are a few more girls who are about the right age but not quite tall enough yet. To show appreciation for their commitment throughout the year, we had a bowling outing with the Altar Servers in October at Lockport Lanes. We bowled and had pizza and pop ~ it seemed like everyone had a good time. I am looking forward to working with the girls in 2007!
