Wear Red for Pentecost!  Our beautiful Red hangings will be on the altar, pulpit and lectern.

      From the Episcopal Church CalendarAs God has flooded earth and sky with color, so the Church has sensed the symbolic use of color in its worship. As dominating colors in nature change with the seasons of the fourfold year, so in the Church Year there is a structured change in the colors of the Eucharistic vestments, the liturgical colors. This sequence of liturgical colors has a principal role in Christian visual education, in teaching the Gospel through the eye.  RED – the color of fire and of blood, is used on Pentecost; optionally on Palm Sunday and Good Friday; feasts and Votives of the Martyrs; Votives of the Holy spirit; Ritual Masses for Ordination and optionally for Confirmation.

  • Potluck luncheon to follow service at Parish House – Maybe Memorial Day picnic food -- hotdogs, hamburgers, potato salad, etc., and weather permitting, sit on our nicely repaired and painted screened porch!
