National Gun Violence Awareness Day, June 2 & Wear Orange Weekend, Jun 2-4

From the Wear Orange Website: “On January 21, 2013 Hadiya Pendleton marched in President Obama’s second inaugural parade. One week later Hadiya was shot and killed on a Chicago playground. Soon after Hadiya’s friends commemorated her life by wearing orange, the color hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others. Wear Orange is now observed every June. Thousands of people wear the color orange to honor Hadiya and the more than 40,000 people who are killed with guns and approximately 85,000 who are shot and wounded every year. We honor the communities shattered by gun violence, as well as the 120 people who are shot and killed, and hundreds more who are wounded, every day in our country. Together, we call for meaningful action to save lives.”


Juneteenth (June 19th) is the Federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans. Once again this year at LCOS we are observing this important date by displaying Juneteenth flags at the entrances to our church during the week leading up to this historic date. Keep an eye out starting June 11 for the red and blue flags with a starburst that represents the state of Texas, where slaves in the most remote part of the Confederacy learned of their emancipation on June 19, 1865.

LCOS Has Gone a Little Greener!

Hopefully by now everyone has seen the new green recycle bins located throughout the LCOS building. The bins mean that we are following the Camden County Single Stream Recycling standards. Please place paper products, glass, #1 & #2 plastic bottles, jars and jugs, and metal containers in these bins. Be sure to first empty and rinse all containers. When in doubt, consider the item trash, and instead place it in a lined trash can. Thank you for helping us save the earth, one small step at a time.

The Justice & Peace Committee Will Be Sponsoring The “Besmart Campaign” at Our Savior on May 24 at 7:00pm in the Parish Hall

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America launched this educational safety program which focuses on a commonsense approach designed to help parents and adults normalize conversations about gun safety and take responsible actions to prevent child gun deaths and injuries. Whether you own guns or not, everyone has a role in this conversation. Questions? Contact: Bob Dempsey 856-246-8543, robertdemp@verizon.net. All are welcome!
