WOCC News for March

Updated: Mar 3



The next WOCC meeting takes place via Zoom on Monday, March 7th at 1 p.m. If you're a woman aged 18 or older, you're already a member of the WOCC, so join us and see what's happening! Email us for the link - wocc@christchurchcolumbia.org - or use the link that's in our weekly emails.


In other news, The WOCC delivered large-print bibles, sugar-free hot cocoa mix, and a variety of snacks to our friends at Springfield Hospital Volunteer Services on February 17th (see photo above). We still can’t make our monthly bingo visits due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we check in with Volunteer Services to see if we can help them meet current patient needs. The snacks will be used in their Incentive Program, and the Bibles were a request from their new chaplain, on behalf of a few patients with sight challenges.


We've also published our WOCC Calendar of Events for 2022, so please check it out and join us in our activities. We’ve got lots of opportunities coming up in March, so mark your calendars:

  • We’ve been invited by St. John’s in Ellicott City to their Saturday afternoon guided Lenten Labyrinth walks. Guides will be available between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. each Saturday in Lent, beginning March 5th. You can read more about it from the image below. We visited the site last fall; you can see our report about that experience here.

  • March 21st is our trip to Maryland Women’s Heritage Center to celebrate Women’s History Month. Carpooling will be available. Email us for details.

Finally, as a reminder, the Women of Christ Church gather donations for the Baltimore Seafarers Ministry throughout the year. At this time, they are looking for magazines, cards, notebooks, gloves, hats, and scarves. If you’d like to donate any of these items, the "Seafarers" box is under the table in the Tower Room of New Brick.
