Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Back to Biloxi

the ruins of Redeemer, BiloxiKing of Peace is part of the group of partner churches working to assist The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Biloxi, Mississippi with ongoing recovery in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. We have been asked to supply additional crew members for the following upcoming weeks:

May 1-6, July 15-22
and November 6-13

Saint Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Bethesda, Maryland will be going down to work in Biloxi from May 1-6. All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Frederick, Maryland will be leading groups July 15-22 and November 6-13. On any of these trips, accommodations will be at Camp Biloxi, the Lutheran-Episcopal Disaster Response area set up on the grounds of Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd.

Work will be available for anyone at any skill level and can range from working at Camp Biloxi itself in the kitchen or tool shed to cleaning up debris to rebuilding houses. Any willing workers will find something within their range of abilities.

The accommodations are bunk beds, hot showers (in a shower trailer on the grounds) and porta potties. Food is provided on site in a dining tent. Participants are expected to pay $20 per day to offset the cost to the church. Scholarship for this is available from King of Peace. If you have any questions, or want to sign up to go one of these weeks, contact me at the church, (912) 510-8958 and I will get you more information, release forms, etc.
