Grace and peace. We will be celebrating the Feast of Pentecost this Sunday at St. Patrick’s. Pentecost is one of the primary feast days of the Christian year (like Easter and Christmas), but is often overlooked. Pentecost marks the 50th day after Easter when the disciples received the Holy Spirit which they and we have continued to use to inspire our life and ministry in the name of Jesus. The indwelling of the Spirit tugs us to enact different acts of love in the midst of great need. I encourage you to wear RED this Sunday at our one service at 10:30am (NO 9AM). The Jubilate Deo Choir will be offering their Spring mini-musical, and we will celebrate five baptisms (including Sandy and Al’s two grandchildren). I wish I could be here with you, but I will be traveling back to Washington on Sunday morning after officiating my cousin’s wedding in Indiana on Saturday night.
Beginning on Memorial Day weekend, we will begin our summer schedule with a single service on Sunday morning at 10am. Our summer schedule will continue through Labor Day.
