Together in Faith: “And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
Jesus remains with us in his Spirit, his word, his church. He is especially with us in one another, though. We are invited to constantly see him in those whom we can support and assist.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is John Ddamba.
Sincerest Gratitude from the Bloom Family: The entire Bloom family: Fr Carl, Anne, Susan, John, Mark, Paul and the remaining extended family members would like to express their sincerest gratitude for such a lovely and heartfelt celebration of Valerie’s life. They would like to further extend special consideration to Daughters of the King, members of ECW&M, Fr. Gerardo, Fr. Steve, administration, and the musicians and singers of St. Mark’s for all of their fabulous assistance and music. All efforts were successful in making this day extra special for Valerie Bloom and her family.
Summer Sunday Service Change and Important Lion’s Den Info: As previously mentioned we will be changing our summer Sunday service schedule. We will have ONE English service on Sundays at 10 am. In regards to Lion's Den, beginning Sunday, June 11th, we will switch to having donuts and coffee (provided by the Church) instead of ministries bringing food. The ministry assigned to that Sunday's Lion's Den will STILL be responsible for making coffee, set up and clean up before and after but they will not need to bring food. Fr. Gerardo feels this will be a welcome break for all the ministries this summer as well. Our regular service times and Lion's Den hosting responsibilities are anticipated to return in September.
Summer Food Drive: This summer when kids are home from school, there will be an increased need for wholesome snacks for needy families. The Food Pantry is having a peanut butter/cereal drive this summer. If you would like to donate there will be a designated box in the Narthex.
