Ruth's Harvest Seminary Day
Ruth's Harvest is an ecumenical ministry providing food-filled backpacks for children in Gettysburg whose families experience food insufficiency. This ministry has just recently begun and is feeding over 100 kids. LTSG is signed up to provide volunteers, and we need your help for Oct. 13, from 9-11am at Christ Church Parish House. We will meet at the seminary and either walk or ride together, depending on the weather. To sign up, please send an email to Jane (
jmountain@ltsg.edu). You will be contacted with further information for that day. Want to be a part of this growing ministry, but can't make it that day? Send an email and you will be put on a list of potential volunteers for our next Ruth's Harvest Seminary Day.

Thank you!
A big thanks to all who helped with setting up the Refectory for the dance last Friday night. It was truly a case of "many hands makes light work.”

Blessing of the animals tomorrow

Bring your critters, great and small, to chapel on Friday, as we commemorate the life and ministry of St. Francis of Assisi, and bless our beloved companions and fellow creatures. ALL animals are most welcome, however please leash/cage/terrarium in a way that respects and protects the variety of life and personalities present. Critters will be individually blessed, we'll sing and pray, and it'll be just great. Humans are warmly welcome, too, as we gather outside of the chapel tomorrow.

SA Halloween Party
Attention ghouls and monsters: save the date of Oct. 30 for the SA Halloween Party, from 7-10pm in Singmaster! Please plan to bring something to share with everyone. There will be costume contests, trivia, and a trick or treat for charity with all proceeds benefiting the seminary campus library! We hope to see you there! Questions? Contact Nikki at

Free nutritious food
Fresh lettuce and greens (chard, mustard, kale and mixed lettuce) are available in the community garden! There are also tomatoes galore and green peppers and jalapeno peppers (both green and red hot). Look under the tomato plants for basil and lemon basil, and find parsley under the jalapeno plants. Pull greens, taking the entire plant and leaving one plant every 6 inches. Not sure what is food or how to harvest or prepare it? Email Jane (
jmountain@ltsg.edu) to arrange to meet for personalized instruction. While you are in the garden, take five minutes or so to pull up some weeds.The Community Garden is for everyone—students, faculty, staff and anyone else passing through. The garden is located right next to Richard House (walk out the Valentine door by the bookstore and straight ahead over the small hill). Come anytime! Contact Jane Mountain or Ben Erzkus (berzkus@Ltsg.edu) for more info.
