End of Year Celebration & Potluck Breakfast this morning – Join us in the parish hall at 9:00 am. We have lots of fun, good food, and an opportunity to support our children and thank the wonderful people who minister to them throughout the year. Come show our students, teachers, and parents how much we appreciate them!

Sunday School is on summer break until September.

The Eucharist will be celebrated all summer long!

Last two weeks for donations to the Franklin Neighborhood Community Association Summer Day Camp program. Each day offers recreational, educational, and life skills programs, and about a third of the campers begin the day with tutoring. This is one of FNCA’s larger and most successful programs. The fee is only $40 per camper for the six week session, but actual cost per camper is $200. In addition to scholarships and personnel, funds are needed for supplies, activities, and busses. We are asking your help to with this program. Envelopes for donations are available in the narthex, or simply put “Kid to Camp” on the memo of your check. Thank you.

Annual Parish Picnic is June 5 at Toddhall

The 8:00 am Eucharist will take place at St. George’s as usual. The second service will take place at 11:00 am in St. Cecilia’s Chapel at Toddhall. It’s not far, it’s easy to get there, and the newly completed renovations are beautifully done and make this lovely chapel handicap accessible! The picnic will follow the service, with St. George’s providing hamburgers, hotdogs, and drinks. You bring side dishes, lawn chairs, hats, balls and bats, Frisbees, sun screen, etc. Come have fun with us!

Bishop’s Discretionary Fund – When the Bishop is present it is the practice to collect offerings for his discretionary fund. Since we did not remember to announce this last week, we will include the week after the Bishop is present. If you would like to make a donation, make your check out to St. George’s and note “Bishop’s fund” on the memo line, or use the designated envelopes provided in the narthex. Thank you!

Red Cross Blood Drive in the Parish Hall – Sunday, June 12, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Please help prevent a summer shortage, and give blood. One donation can save up to three lives! All you need is a valid photo ID. For more information, speak to Frank Rogers or visit www.redcrossblood.org. Thank you!

Our Food Pantry is well stocked with food thanks to the Letter Carriers food drive. Many, many thanks to the volunteers to worked for hours waiting for, carting, sorting, and storing the donations. The pantry can still use bath soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, shampoo and conditioner, diapers, and baby formula. Bring any donations to church on Sunday or by the parish office during the week. Thank you!

Coffee Hour – Everyone enjoys the coffee after the 10:30 service, but only a few families take turns making coffee and setting things out. Some of our hosts provide elaborate snacks, but all we really need is coffee, juice, and cookies, and we can help cover the cost as needed. Speak to Deacon Jody for more info.

If you would like unction (anointing and healing prayer by the priest), please indicate this at the altar rail. Members of the Order of St. Luke are available on the south side of the church for additional prayer after receiving communion for those who wish.

______________________________________________________

All baptized persons are welcome to receive Communion. We believe this is Christ’s Body and Blood, according to Christ’s very promise. One appropriately receives the consecrated wafer on your hands (right over left) and raises it to your mouth, or receives it directly on your tongue. Then assist the chalice bearer in guiding the chalice to your lips. If you wish to receive by “intinction”, leave the host on your palm and the chalice bearer will pick it up, intinct, and place it on your tongue. Do not intinct yourself – this prevents fingers touching the wine. If you do not wish to receive the chalice, please indicate this by crossing your arms over your chest.
