St. Michael and All Angels Newsletter/Calendar - June 2019

June 2 is the last Sunday of Eastertide. The Feast of Pentecost on June 9 celebrates the day that the Holy Spirit came to the disciples when they were gathered in Jerusalem. The Book of Acts tells us that The Holy Spirit was like the rush of a mighty wind, with tongues of flame like fire that rested on each person. After Easter, Pentecost is the second most important feast of the church. Collectively, the weeks following Pentecost to the end of November are known as the Season of Pentecost. During this time we learn of the spread of the Good News of the Risen Christ throughout the world. It is the time when we focus on the disciples as they begin the work they were called to do by Jesus, their friend. And we acknowledge that we, too, have been alled by Jesus to do the work of the church.

St. Michael’s Tidbits

There wil not be a First Sunday Lunch in June because we are asking everyone to bring food for the Bishop’s luncheon on June 16th.

St. Michael’s has a fund by which we send our children to Camp Capers. Camp is a wonderful experience for our children. If you wish to learn more about the camp programs, please ask Ginger Faught, leader of the Children’s Class.

Summer may be a good time for you to consider expanding your involvement at St. Michael’s. If you would like to learn about how to volunteer to serve at the altar as an acolyte, a crucifer or a Eucharistic minister, please contact Mary Nabers or Betty McNallen.

If you wish to become part of one of the Altar Guild service teams, please contact Henrietta Smith.
