THE SPIRITUAL FAMILY CLASS: This class will continue to discuss "Social Skills for Life" in May. Wydown Meeting Room from 10:30-11:15 AM. Adults of all ages are invited.

WELCOME OUR GUEST PREACHER for the 9:15 AM liturgy:
The Rev. Canon John Hartnett grew up at Emmanuel Church in Webster Groves where he sang in the children's choir and watched his parents serve in a wide variety of ministries. He attended John Burroughs School, graduated from St. George's School in Newport, RI (where he was taught by Hays Rockwell, later Bishop of Missouri), Harvard College, and Union Theological Seminary in New York City. Ordained to the priesthood by Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 1988, Fr. John served two Manhattan parishes before being called to St. Elizabeth's Church in Ridgewood, New Jersey where he has been the Rector for 24 years. He and Susan have two adult children and five grandchildren. Prior to ordination he worked in publishing in Manhattan, is an amateur carpenter of modest ability, and leads expeditions to English Cathedrals to introduce Americans to the Anglican tradition in its native habitat.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR RECOGNITION: Congratulations to all our graduating seniors! We're proud of you and excited for what the future will bring. Everyone is invited to the Great Hall today following the 9:15 AM service to celebrate.

SUNDAY SCHOOL: Sunday is the last day of Youth Ministry Sunday School before we recess for the summer. 6th and 7th graders will be in the Gym; 8th-11th graders will be in the Armstrong Room. Thanks for a great year! 

HEALING EUCHARIST: Sunday evening, the 5:30 PM Sunday evening service will include prayers for healing along with Anointing with holy oil. "Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord." (James 5:14) Come to pray for people in need of healing and wholeness, or come if you yourself would like to receive the Anointing of the Sick.
