Good News: A Weekly Update from St Thomas Church—June 5, 2014
The Day of Pentecost! Fifty days after the Resurrection! The day when the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples like tongues of fire! The day when the disciples were sent into the world to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth! The day that is marked as the birthday of the Church! Yes, that Day of Pentecost! And this year it is also the day for our outdoor service and parish picnic. We will recognize our Sunday School teachers and give thanks to our choir for their wonderful music throughout the year. We will honor our graduates and acolytes. We will break bread together in our Eucharist and then at our parish picnic. Please plan to be here and since all are welcome at St Thomas, please invite friends and neighbors, houseguests and family members to join you!
Check the June newsletter for information about food for the picnic.
The color for Pentecost is red, so feel free to wear red.
Peace and blessing, Carol+
