SUNDAY'S APPOINTED MASS READINGS: Song of Solomon 1:13-15; 2:23-24; Mark 5:21-43; Preaching: the Rector.
THIS SUNDAY, JUNE 28, COLD COVERED DISH LUNCH AFTER MASS! Yes, in our own hot Parish Hall we will hold a cold covered dish lunch. Team Kitchen will have removed the Parish Hall kitchen’s sink and portions of the kitchen’s floor, making that workspace impossible to use. THEREFORE, start thinking now of the great COLD DISH (as in not requiring heating on a stove, washing preparation, etc.) that you will bring and share with others. And yes, the usual iced tea and lemonade will be served to wash it all down. And bring a friend!
TEAM KITCHEN IS UNDERWAY! The old cabinets, countertop, sink and flooring will be removed by members of “Team Kitchen” this weekend, June 26-28. The kitchen will be closed for approximately a month while our volunteers purchase, assemble and install the new cabinets, counter, sink, lighting, dishwasher and coffee machine! If you’d like to volunteer to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether or not you have time or ability to work, we need your support! We are only about 10% to our fundraising goal, so let’s step it up! Please DONATE, and please tell your friends and family about our fundraising website: www.gofundme.com/stpauls and the online pop-up-auction www.biddingowl.com/stpaulsepiscopal
