God's Story in Our Life

Isn’t it incredible to know that God’s story is still unfolding in OUR lives? It’s true!

Holy Eucharist at 9 am
As we begin our gradual return to in-person worship with full participation and singing, we will continue to live out the principle of the Gospel - to be in solidarity with the most vulnerable. At this time this includes our children and adults who are not vaccinated.
We will wear masks during the service, and we will be seated with social distancing.
Please RSVP each week so that we can plan our seating. You may complete the RSVP form on our website or leave a message at the Parish Office.
During the coming weeks we will grow into a clearer understanding of best practices, and we will modify our practices accordingly.

Celebrating our Children & Youth &

June 6th – Celebrating our Children & Youth: Sunday School students and youth will be our Readers. We will celebrate their accomplishments this year, and we will celebrate the ministries of Rachel Carpenter as Church School Coordinator & Sarah Prevelige as Youth Group Mentor.
June 13th – Honoring our Graduates: We will celebrate our youth and young adults graduating from 8th grade, high school, and college. Please contact Beth Moeller if someone in your family is graduating from 8th grade, high school, or college.
The JULIETSs, who have not been meeting due to the pandemic, plan to get together on June 2, at 12:30. If you would like to join us for lunch at New England Steak and Seafood in Mendon, please let Pat Keppler know: 508 966-0003 or 508 246-9703 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This restaurant is indoors but usually not crowded at lunch, and we should be able to reasonably socially distance there. All women from the parish are welcome to join this group. It should be fun!
Altar Flowers: Summer
Now that we will be gathering for Holy Eucharist every Sunday, we would like to have fresh flowers at the altar every week. However, our florist reports that prices have increased significantly during the pandemic. We invite donations from your gardens. Please contact Mary-Ellen Yaroshefski if you wish to contribute. This may be an opportunity for thanksgiving or memorials.
Memorial Day Grab n Go lunches will be prepared and distributed by Girl Scout Troop # 11369 from 11am - noon. Many thanks to Scouts Kim and Madelyn Stochaj, Isabella Shady, Josephine Dew, and Caitlyn Bangert and to adult members Beth and Wayne Stochaj and Jennifer Shady. We thank them for their generosity and ingenuity.
The Good News Gardens
We have been encouraging container gardening, but if you long to have your hands in the earth, you are invited to volunteer at "Garden of Hope" on the bike/walk rail trail in Milford. Mary Johnson is collaborating with Lisa Trussis to manage the garden at Christopher's Corner, near Fino Field Pool, directly off the bike path. On June 5th we will have a garden-work party at 9am. If you are interested in shoveling dirt or planting or watering you are welcome to join us! We will have a table with containers for those who want to garden but cannot get down on their hands and knees to do the work. You can still plant, water and weed. The earth is amazing! Gardening can be a chore, a healing process, nurturing, wearying and uplifting - all at the same time. And it is like alchemy, instead of creating gold, it produces food. And I do love to eat!
If you have a plant, nurture it and share the harvest. If you don't have one yet, but want one, we are going to give more plants away after Memorial Day. Charlie has been transplanting the plants and helping them to grow. Stayed tuned for the next few give away dates. - Mary Johnson
