Peter's Post


CELEBRATE PENTECOST THIS SUNDAY

Suddenly from heaven there came a sound like a rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting.  Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. (Acts 2:1-4)

This Sunday we celebrate the Day of Pentecost, one of the seven principal feasts of the church year, when the Holy Spirit came to the disciples and the church was born.  At the 9am service Nicholas Fornes will receive the Sacrament of Baptism.  It is a feast of the Spirit celebrated in music, prayer and liturgy.  The color of the day is red, and wearing red on Pentecost Day is very appropriate. 

Pentecost concludes the festive season of Easter.  After that day we enter the Season After Pentecost, which lasts until Advent in late November.

ST. PETER’S HAND BELL CHOIR AND CHILDREN’S CONCERT THIS FRIDAY

St. Peter’s Hand Bell Choir and Children’s Choir are coming together to present one spring concert featuring both choirs this Friday, May 13 at 6pm in St. Peter’s Church.  There will be a free will offering taken up at the concert for the Music Fund to benefit both choirs.  Please come to hear some good music and to support our choirs.

MEMORIAL BRICKS FOR SALE

A limited amount of Memorial Bricks for placement in St. Peter’s Courtyard are now on sale for $100 each.  Proceeds will enable Phase II of the courtyard project to be completed.  Bricks will include the name of the person being memorialized.  To purchase a brick, fill out a Memorial Brick Envelope with a check enclosed.  These envelopes are available on the table outside the parlor during coffee hour this Sunday, and from the Parish Office.

VESTRY RETREAT

St. Peter's Vestry went on a very productive and positive day-long retreat this past Saturday at Old Trinity, Church Creek where they engaged in discernment and visioning for the future of the parish.  The retreat was facilitated by consultants from the Episcopal Church Foundation.  The Vestry is following up on the work they did on retreat at next week's Vestry meeting, including plans plan to share their work with the congregation.
