Dear People of Calvary…..
I thought we had a happy celebration last Sunday for Mother’s Day. More exciting things are coming!:
+ This coming Sunday we celebrate the Day of Pentecost….often thought of as “the Birthday of the Church”, which ties in nicely with what your vestry has been saying about “a new beginning at Calvary”. Come to this celebration and wear Red!
+ Trinity Sunday is on May 26, and Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day. We have new flags and, weather permitting, we will have a special “flag dedication” ceremony at the flag pole in our cemetery at 10:30 a.m. and proceed into the church. Assemble at the flag pole and because of a tradition at Calvary, everyone should wear White!
+ Sunday, June 2, I will go to “meddle-ing/meddling/med’lin”….something. I will preach a sermon about money, ministry, and the Priesthood of All Believers. It will be about sustaining Calvary Church through the summer months, finding a new priest, and having a future.
+ Sunday, June 9, we are calling “Student Celebration Sunday”. We want to recognize the completion of yet another year of progress in school and graduation for all our young people. We want every one of them in church on this day for this celebration. Ice Cream Sundaes for all our young people!
May the Lord Bless us and keep us.
The Rev. Roy Hills, Interim Rector
