A Meditation on the Trinity by Calvin Miller [Celtic Devotions, p. 27]
May God the Father be the shield beneath which we hide our fragile souls.
He comes both generous and large to cover us when troubles rain
down upon us.
May God the Son make of his own cross a place for our hard times
And may the wood he chose now heal our wounds.
May God the Spirit live within us like structural steel with welded braces
So the pressures from without will never crush us.
May we be triple-kept by triune love, shielded by the three in one.

The JULIETS, who have not been meeting due to the pandemic, plan to get together on this Wednesday June 2, at 12:30.

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. 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. Thank you to Madelyn Stochaj for creating the flyer.
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
