Thank You to all who assisted with Pennies for Parkinsons.  We collected over $225 for this project during Paschaltide.

Regarding the Pentecost BBQ next Sunday — The Parish Council will be providing burgers, buns and fixin’s.  There is a sign-up in the Hall for side dishes, desserts and beverages.

Regarding the “casual” grounds work party for next Saturday — this is not an organized work party.  Rather, we’re encouraging members of our parish community to simply drop by for a while and pull some horsetails or weeds, tidy-up the walkways, etc.  (BYOTools)  If you can’t make it on Saturday, then ANY time this coming week would be great.  We’d like to get our grounds in shape for the Feast of Pentecost.  Thanks so much.

Parents:

A variety of activities and crafts that span several age groups and may be used in classroom or home settings are available in PDF format focusing on Pentecost, celebrated next Sunday, June 12.  Department of Christian Education of the OCA:
