SUNDAY'S APPOINTED MASS READINGS: : Ezekiel 2:1-5; Mark 6:1-13
MID-SEASON HYMN FEST: On this Independence Day weekend your favorite hymns will fill the air as we gather to celebrate Mass.
THE PRAYERS AND CONDOLENCES OF THE PARISH are extended to the Wenglinsky family upon the death of Harold’s mother, Sarajane Wenglinsky. Rest eternal grant unto her, O Lord: and may light perpetual shine upon her.The prayers of the congregation are also offered for the repose of the soul of Karen Rolnick's father, Jerry Rolnick, who died on Wednesday. May he rest in peace, Amen.
FOOD DRIVE: Throughout the summer months, bins to receive non-perishable food items are placed in the rear of the church. Items collected will help restock the pantry shelves of First Presbyterian Church, Brooklyn Heights.
SUMMERTIME TEAM UPDATE
TEAM KITCHEN: After removing and stowing regularly used kitchen items, Team Kitchen demolished and removed the kitchen sink, cabinets, and bad flooring. Subflooring work is now in progress. Soon, the Team will install a new sink, cabinets, countertop, and flooring before applying a fresh coat of paint to the walls. Also, look for the rotting restroom floor to be replaced! This necessary work is to help keep our building safe and serviceable to all who use it. While work is in progress the Hall continues to be used daily for parish and community-service meetings.
TEAM RECTORY: Initial preparation and work to make the first floor of the Rectory safer and more usable throughout the week by parish, community, and rental groups has begun. Long-term goals are to preserve and refresh our amazing space while “updating” it to current “safe-space” guidelines, and to child-friendly, and handicap accessible use.
CHOOSE A TEAM: GET INSPIRED. Did you choose a team yet? We are hoping everyone will participate in some way. There are 4 Teams: Basement, Kitchen, Rectory, and Exterior. For more information about each team's project and the many ways you can help, check out www.gofundme.com/stpauls
