The Rev’d Paul Gill Rider says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Judy Erwin says: February 10, 2017 at 2:32 pm I apologize if I inadvertently gave the impression that I am in principle against such outreach programs as Trinity’s free dinner. My own church in Boston hosts a dinner each Tuesday requiring considerable effort intended largely for local down-and-outers virtually none of whom attend church on Sunday. The point I was clumsily trying to make is simply that too many churches these days see their mission as primarily one of social welfare (that’s particularly true in left-wingish Massachusetts) and their main job of tending to the spiritual needs of parishioners is often almost lost in the process. Perhaps things are different in Litchfield, I send Trinity my best wishes. The Rev.

Photo: Jane Settergren[Episcopal News Service] As an outpost of the Episcopal Church in a small Midwestern community, Trinity Episcopal would easily be overlooked if not for an unlikely success story that is told once a month through food and fellowship.Even the most active members of this parish in Litchfield, Minnesota, population 6,726, openly describe the congregation as “pretty small,” “fairly small” and “little.” The church, on its profile page on the Episcopal Church’s website, calls itself as “a small but lively parish.”Trinity Episcopal Church’s building in Litchfield, Minnesota, was built in 1871.Its roots date back to 1871, with the construction of the church building that still is used for worship every Sunday morning. In recent years, the congregation’s membership has shifted older while diminishing in size to about 100. Attendance has dwindled even further, typically about 15 members at services that are led by a rotating lineup of supply priests who travel more than an hour west to Litchfield from the Twin Cities.But visit Trinity Episcopal at lunchtime on the last Friday of any month, and you’ll find the congregation seeming to swell to several times its size, as members of the community pour in for the parish’s monthly free lunch and fellowship time.“Everybody’s very proud of what we do and very thankful that we’re able to do it,” senior warden Dennis Rutledge said, estimating that the free lunches draw more than 100 people to the church each month. “We’re a fairly small congregation, but this is the best way for us to be effective and do the things we can do.”The free lunch is the most prominent example of the outreach underway at Trinity, which has money from gifts set aside to support other social ministries, said the Rev. Judy Hoover, one of the supply priests who travel to Litchfield.“Everyone at that parish has a job, and they work really well together. They’re really kind of unique,” said Hoover, 83, who lives in Plymouth, Minnesota.Once in a while, Rutledge said, he’ll raise the question of whether the church should keep organizing the monthly free lunches. No one, apparently, takes the question seriously, perhaps including Rutledge himself.“I’ve been almost shouted down – ‘Of course, we’re going to do this!’” he said.The mastermind of each month’s meal is a man named Paul Foley, whose wife, JoAnn, is active in the Episcopal Church Women group. He was raised Roman Catholic but no longer considers himself a churchgoer. About 15 years ago, the church needed a cook to keep the lunches going.“‘Nobody’s willing to take charge,’” Paul remembers his wife telling him. “I said, ‘I will.’”Foley has been cooking since he was a boy growing up in Litchfield. He first learned how to prepare food by shadowing his mother in their kitchen. As an adult, he said he spent some time living in Chicago with friends who, when they discovered his skills at preparing a meal, told him they’d buy the groceries if he cooked.Paul Foley is the meal planner and cook behind most of the free lunches held each month at Trinity Episcopal Church in Litchfield, Minnesota. Photo: Jane SettergrenFoley, now 79, briefly worked later in life as a cook for a hotel and then for a caterer, but mostly he cooks for fun, family and fellowship. The free lunches at Trinity provide the perfect canvas for this culinary artist.“It’s kind of a release,” he said. “I enjoy it so much and then the fact that we’re doing it for these people, and I look out to the opening and I see them out there all happy and visiting. … It makes me feel good.”A typical Friday meal starts on Tuesday, when Foley drive up to St. Cloud to buy the groceries and brings them back to the church kitchen. Wednesday is devoted to prep work, and by Thursday he tries to have as much of the meal done as he can. He finishes off Friday morning by preparing the items that need to be hot and fresh.The congregation and community have come to expect certain menu items at certain times of the year: October’s meal follows a German Oktoberfest theme, Foley said, and November is chow mein, just because people seem to like it. Ham is a must for December.“You get to visit with everybody,” free lunch regular Veronica Caswell told the local Independent Review for a feature story about Trinity’s lunches in January. “Sometimes, you just don’t know what you’re going to cook, so it’s nice to come here,”Hip surgery sidelined Foley in January, so he had to pass the apron that month to family members, but he plans to be back in the kitchen for February’s meal. His two Lenten meals are the same every year: “a tuna recipe everybody loves” and salmon loaf.“If I didn’t make salmon loaf, they’d just come after me,” he said.The menu isn’t the only diversity at the lunches. The meals draw a mix of people from the congregation and the community, including two group homes in the area whose residents suffer from developmental disabilities, church member Jane Settergren said.“Those folks just enjoy it so much,” Settergren said. “We like to see them.”And members of the congregation have gotten used to taking on certain roles every month, she said. One of the men is in charge of brewing the coffee. JoAnn Foley makes sure the bathroom supplies are stocked.“I’m kind of the assistant washer,” Rutledge, the warden, said.Settergren, 71, and others are stationed in the dining room to welcome diners. And one of the women, if she can break from serving the food, will play her cello while the crowd socializes.“We haven’t really made a profit for the last couple years, but that doesn’t worry anybody because that’s not the object,” Paul Foley said. “It’s to get them together and have a good meal.”And they expect to keep serving up the monthly meals at this “super little church,” as Settergren calls it, as long as they are able.“It’s fun. Everybody seems to enjoy it,” she said. “We would miss it terribly if we didn’t do it anymore.”-David Paulsen is an editor/reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Hire the equipment from a reputable company, with adequate Public Liability insurance – at least £2,000,0002. If possible, arrange for the hire company to set up the equipment for you. If not, follow the instructions in the operating manual, particularly guidance on siting and anchorage3. Check that the inflatable has been manufactured to British Standard (BS EN 14960) requirements. A label will tell you if it has, as well as when it was made, how many people can use it and what heights they should be – make sure these instructions are followed4. If the castle is over a year old, ask for proof that it has been tested by a competent person – usually by those registered with PIPA Inflatable Play Inspection or the Amusement Devices Inspection Procedures Scheme5. If an electrical blower is provided, check that it has been inspected at least annually6. Provide and maintain any additional equipment which might be required e.g. crowd barriers7. Get the hiring company to supervise its use for you. Otherwise, make sure you are given detailed instructions on how to do this properly8. When castles are inflated, make sure there are always enough competent people supervising their use, following any operating instructions that have been provided9. Make sure that the inflatable will not be used if the weather is likely to be inclement, particularly in high winds10. While the castle is in use, make sure any necessary checks are completed. Where any defects are identified, make sure these are rectified immediately, or keep children safe until this has been done.Further guidanceThere is additional guidance from Ecclesiastical on using bouncy castles safely.Additional guidance on using bouncy castles safely is available at:The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) also provides advice for parents wanting to hire a bouncy castle or looking for a responsible hirer.There are also guidelines on the safe use and operation of play inflatables, including bouncy castles. Does your charity run fundraising events that include bouncy castles for children? Charity and event insurance specialist Ecclesiastical has published ten tips to help churches, charities and schools keep children safe as they enjoy the fun on bouncy castles. The insurance company’s tips come as organisations make the most of the summer weather by using bouncy castles to raise money for good causes at fairs, fetes and barbecues.Huw Andrews, principal casualty consultant for Ecclesiastical explained:“With summer just around the corner, organisations all over the country will be using bouncy castles to help raise money for good causes. We want people to continue having fun and enjoying themselves, as well as helping organisers to manage the risks and make events as safe as possible.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12

It offers a programme of funding to enable women and girls to take positive steps towards empowerment and opportunity, and is currently supporting three charities. These are Beyond the Page: a women-only space for English language-learning and inter-cultural friendship, Diversity House, which works with girls in a disadvantaged area of Swale, and Olympia Boxing CIC, which provides BOX Fitness sessions to adults who are disadvantaged, single parents, suffer with mental health, isolated and on low incomes. Tagged with: Funding grants Lloyds Bank Foundation revamps grants programme approach with funding now availableLloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales has relaunched its grants programme to make the process simpler, more flexible, and more transparent.Core funding grants worth up to £100,000 are now available for small and local charities.The Foundation partners with small and local charities who help people overcome complex social issues.Its new approach involves:A continuously open application process, rather than in rounds, so that charities can apply for support whenever they are readyClearer turnaround times for when a decision on funding will be made from the initial applicationGrants worth up to £45,000 and £100,000 available over three years (with the possibility of continuing to six years) that can be used entirely for core costs, with charities able to flex how much they spend each year.A simplified approach to reporting whereby charities can share existing reports they already produce, rather than having to complete bespoke reports for the Foundation ensuring charities maintain accountability to their boards and not the foundation.Support from the Foundation’s regional managers and access to the Foundation’s ‘Enhance’ organisational development programme, helping charities to become more resilient and sustainableEligible for support are charities with an income between £25,000 and £1m across England and Wales tackling complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse and with a proven track record of helping people achieve positive change in their local communities.Charities can check eligibility and apply for grants online through the Foundation’s new website.Eligibility criteria has been developed to ensure the Foundation can respond to areas and issues where need is greatest by analysing the number of eligible small and medium-sized charities in a given area, specific local needs and the size of the Foundation’s current investment in each issue and region. Depending on these factors, the new website will advise a charity whether they are eligible to apply and, if they are, whether they can apply for £45,000 or £100,000. Criteria will be reviewed and updated every six months.Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales Director of Grants Harriet Stranks said:“Small charities are undervalued and under more pressure than ever, but they are reaching people and communities that big charities and organisations simply can’t. That’s why I’m delighted our new approach to grant-making, developed alongside the charities we work with, will aim to make the process even easier to navigate, more transparent and led by the needs of the applicant.“Our ambition is to support small and medium-sized charities over the longer term. This gives the charities we partner with greater flexibility over how they use those resources, allows them to build an in-depth relationship with us and take advantage of the wide range of development support we offer including training, consultancy and mentoring.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The observation was made with respect to a case whereby two separate proceedings filed by a wife, one for divorce under the Special Marriage Act and another against restrain order under the Domestic Violence, were clubbed, and heard and decided by a Family Court. A Division Bench comprising of Justices RD Dhanuka and VG Bisht held, “The moment both the proceedings came to be clubbed by judicial order of this Court and directed to be tried together, the jurisdiction of the Family Court became abundantly clear over the proceedings under the Domestic Violence Act. Resultantly, the order passed in the proceedings became the orders passed by the learned judge of the Family Court for all purposes and therefore, it would be a fallacy and myopic to term part of the order pertaining to the reliefs under Domestic Violence Act as an order amenable to revisional jurisdiction. This would amount to nothing but a self serving interpretation.” Background The Respondent-wife herein had filed a petition before the Family Court praying for divorce on the ground of cruelty and adultery. Subsequently, she moved a Criminal Misc. Application under provisions of the Domestic Violence Act before a Judicial Magistrate, First Class for various reliefs. Both the matters came to be clubbed by an order of the Bombay High Court, with directions to be heard by the Family Court. The Family Court allowed both the applications moved by the Respondent-wife, following which the instant proceedings were initiated by the Appellant-husband before the High Court, in the form of an appeal. Issue The issue before the Court was whether Appeal under Section 19(1) of the Family Courts Act, 1984 is maintainable also in respect of the reliefs granted by the Family Court claimed under the provisions of Domestic Violence Act along with the reliefs granted in the divorce proceedings under the provisions of Special Marriage Act by a common judgment. Arguments The Respondent wife had contended that to the extent of challenge to the order of maintenance passed by the Family Court under the DV Act, a Criminal Revision Application is maintainable and not this Family Court Appeal. She inter alia relied upon Section 19(5) of the Family Courts Act and would submitted that except the orders which are appealable under Section 19 specifically, no appeal or revision can be filed to any Court from any order or decree of a Family Court She also relied on Section 29 of the DV Act and submitted that any order passed under the Section 12 of the DV Act is appealable before the Sessions Court. “Merely, because both the proceedings filed by the respondent i.e. one before the Family Court under the Special Marriage Act and another before the learned Judicial Magistrate, First Class under the provisions of Domestic Violence Act were clubbed together by this Court in the proceedings filed under Section 24 of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908, the order passed by the Family Court in various separate paragraphs of the impugned order cannot be construed an order appealable under Section 19(1) of the Family Courts Act, 1984,” her counsel argued. The Appellant-husband on the other hand stated that the remedy of appeal provided under Section 29 of the Domestic Violence Act could have been availed by filing an appeal to the Court of Sessions only if such order would have been heard by the Judicial Magistrate, First Class and not in case of an order passed by the Family Court. He stated that since the proceedings were heard by a Family Court, Section 29 of the DV Act thus would not be attracted in this case. Findings The High Court has held that the rights created and remedies provided for in the Domestic Violence Act are basically of civil nature. Hence, once the proceedings seeking reliefs available under Sections 18 to 22 of the DV Act are decided by a Civil Court, it cannot be said that the proceedings are of criminal nature and ought to be heard by a Revisional Criminal Court only. The Court heavily relied on the principles laid down by the Full bench of the Bombay High Court in the case of Nandkishor Pralhad Vyawahare v. Mangala, (2018) 3 Mah LJ 913. The findings of the High Court are summarized below: 1. As per Section 26 of the DV Act, any relief available under the said Act can also be sought in any other legal proceeding before a Civil Court, Family Court or a Criminal Court as long as such proceeding affects the aggrieved person and the respondents. “It is not the Judicial Magistrate, First Class or the Metropolitan Magistrate, as the case may be, who alone is competent to decide an application under Section 12(1). As even a Civil Court or a Family Court or any other Criminal Court conducting any legal proceeding which has the power under Section 26 to do so.” 2. It is not the nature of the proceeding and it is the nature of the right violated and the relief provided for violation of the right is what ultimately decides the nature of a proceeding. Section 28 and 29 of the DV Act essentially create a plethora of civil rights breach of which results in basically providing civil remedies which are alien to criminal law. These rights and remedies are such as, right against domestic violence to be realized through a prohibitory order (Section 18), right to reside in a shared household and right from being dispossessed or disturbed in enjoying the possession of a shared household to be realized through a suitable restraining order (Section 19), right to get monetary reliefs and compensation (Sections 20 and 22), right to seek temporary custody of the child (Section 21) and right to seek interim and ex-parte orders in certain cases (Section 23). “These rights and reliefs are not found in classical criminal jurisdiction, which is about punishing the rule breaker by sentencing him to death or imprisonment or forfeiture of property and in some cases making him pay the compensation to the victim of crime.” 3. The notice that is issued first on an application under Section 12(1) of the DV Act is civil in nature as can be seen from the provision of Section 13 and neither any cognizance is taken as under Section 190 of the Criminal Procedure Code nor any process is issued as under Section 204 of Criminal Procedure Code in respect of such an application. 4. The rights created and remedies provided for the breaches thereof under DV Act have been viewed by the Parliament as basically of civil nature and, therefore, by specific provisions, authority has been conferred even upon the Civil Courts, in addition to Criminal Courts, under Section 26 of the Domestic Violence Act, to deal with an application filed for seeking various remedies provided under Section 18 to 22 of the Domestic Violence Act. “It is held that making of Criminal and Civil Courts simultaneously as appropriate to obtain the reliefs provided under the Domestic Violence Act is a certain pointer to the fact that the character of the proceeding is not dependent upon the nature of the tribunal which is invested with the authority to grant relief, but upon the nature of the right violated and the kind of relief that may be had.” 5. The applicability of provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code and providing of criminal consequences for breaches are only indicative of the intention of the Parliament to make various civil remedies available under the Domestic Violence Act more effective and meaningful. However, they have no bearing upon and do not determine the basic character of the proceeding initiated under Section 12(1) of the Domestic Violence Act which is by and large of the civil nature. 6. in the instant case, the Appellant could not point out any relief granted by the Family Court attracting any punishment for any alleged offence committed by the appellant, which could be tried by any Criminal Court.
