We are volunteering at the Gathering this Saturday, and if you plan to volunteer, please contact Jim Lemerand. They are currently assembling and distributing to-go meals. We have four volunteers signed up to go, and have room for one or two more. You must be healthy, and all volunteers will be required to wear a mask. If they don't have one, the Gathering have some to provide. The volunteer time is 10:00-12:45.
Strawberry Fest is coming, and there are a number of ways to support the Haiti Project. You can go to St. Mary’s webpage (stmarys-dousman.com), click the “Donate” button and then donate to the Strawberry Fest. You can either: preorder a strawberry pie (or several) for $18 a pie, or you can donate and leave your email address to receive a virtual pie. Actual pies can be picked up on June 28 at St. Mary’s between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., virtual pies will be delivered to your email address.
The Haiti Project will be selling a limited number of art pieces as well. To pre-order yours, go to the Haiti Project Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/HaitiProject.org/) and place your order. The artwork can be picked up on June 28, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Also on June 28 at 11 a.m., the Haiti Project will have an online presentation to help raise awareness for their important ministry.
I had a number of requests to post the sermons online like we do when we worship in church. It took a couple tries, but I do now have the sermons from Ascension Day and Easter VII posted on our website, and I will continue to post sermons as we move forward. Thank you!
Finally, I want to thank everyone who has participated in the Thursday noon services, but due to lack of interest we are discontinuing them. I hope you have enjoyed learning more about the saints. We will continue to offer services Sundays at 5 p.m., Tuesdays at 4 p.m., and Wednesdays at 9 a.m. In June I think we will be able to start offering online services filmed at St. Mary’s on Sunday mornings. I hope you will join the Diocese for worship on Pentecost and Trinity Sunday.
