Don’t forget that tomorrow morning, we will have our monthly Beans and Rice Pantry at the church from 9:00-11:00. All are welcome and encouraged to come and help out. Also, tomorrow afternoon, we will have our monthly visit to Hidden Acres from 2:00-3:30.

Pentecost Party

Immediately following our 10:30 service on Sunday morning, please join us downstairs in the Undercroft for our Pentecost Party. During the party, we will have a brief update from our Development Committee concerning the building project. Many thanks to our Parish Life Committee for arranging our Pentecost Party.

Building and Grounds “To-Do List”

Do you see something around the church that needs to be fixed or repaired? Please let Bill Churchwell, our Junior Warden for Building and Grounds, know by including it on the “To-Do List,” which has been posted on the bulletin board next to the television in the Annex.

Prayer Book 101 Class

Have you ever wanted a chance to learn more about the Book of Common Prayer? Now is your chance! Father Eric will be leading a “Prayer Book 101” class, beginning this Sunday, May 20, at 9:15. We will be taking a close look at each section of the Prayer Book and discussing its significance. You don’t need to bring your own Prayer Book. We will have plenty to share with everyone. Join us this Sunday!

St. Catherine’s Day

On Sunday, June 3, we will celebrate St. Catherine’s Day with a special Holy Eucharist at 10:30 am. During this service, we will celebrate our patron saint, Catherine of Siena, and recognize the various ministries and leaders of our parish. The feast of St. Catherine is normally commemorated on April 29. However, since this date falls during Eastertide, we have transferred it to June 3.

Dinner for Sawyerville

The Outreach Committee from St. Catherine’s will be hosting dinner for the campers and staff at Sawyerville Day Camp on the evening of Tuesday, June 6. If you would like to help prepare and transport the food for our dinner, please speak with Father Eric or Dee Shirley. We would love to have several volunteers join us for this special outreach opportunity.

Healing Service

Beginning Wednesday, June 6, we will be offering monthly services of Holy Eucharist: Rite I with Prayers for Healing. These services will be offered on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm (in place of Evening Prayer). If you would like to know more about this service, please speak with Father Eric.
