We Need Your Help! A Letter from Rev. Ruth Faith Santana-Grace

Dear Congregations, and Commission & Committee Members!

The Youth Triennium Leadership of our Presbytery is challenging our presbytery to help raise scholarship dollars by organizing a Silent Auction at our next presbytery meeting at Olney Presbyterian Church on Saturday, February 9th. The silent auction will be open at 11:00 am and will close before the end of the presbytery meeting around 4:00 pm. As we all know, for an auction to be successful we need items to auction off. I am hoping that we all might be able to help. If you are able to donate an item to help with this endeavor, it would be greatly appreciated.

Among some things you might consider are:

  • A basket with movie tickets and popcorn, candy, etc.
  • Wine basket
  • sports tickets
  • theater tickets
  • weekend away at someone’s home in the Poconos or other nice place
  • Dinner gift certificate
  • Children’s basket of books and other activities
  • Children’s toys
  • Motorcycle rides or airplane rides
  • Dance, Music, Art, Photography lessons (e.g. four free lessons…)

I think you get the idea. The goal is to have two full buses go to this Triennium in July of this year. Your assistance will help make this possible for many of our youth.

Please take a moment to consider what you might be able to contribute. Please click here to download the Youth Triennium Silent Auction form with contacts and dates, OR click here to fill out your submission online!

We are grateful for your continued leadership in our presbytery.

Blessings as we continue into this new year. See you at Presbytery meeting.


The Rev. Ruth Faith Santana-Grace, Executive Presbyter, Presbytery of Philadelphia
