Other News, and Coming Up!
The Rev. Peter Huang
Vacation
Peter+ will be traveling and away from St Francis from next Friday May 11 through Sunday May 20. Safe travels to Peter+!
Next Sunday—May 20th
is The Day of Pentecost!
At Pentecost we join together to celebrate the fulfillment of the promise which Jesus gave, that the gift of the Holy Spirit would be sent to his followers. Some understand Pentecost to be the origin and sending out of the church into the world.
If you have it, a tradition is to wear red so as to symbolize the tongues of fire which the New Testament tells us was the form of the Holy Spirit, who came to the Apostles on that day, and inspired them to speak their faith aloud to all peoples.
Bring a kite to the service too! Stay tuned…

Solicit Ads For
Antiques Show Program
It has been profitable for the Antiques Show to have ads placed in the annual Antiques Show program.
This is to announce that now is the time to ask your hair salon, favorite restaurant, dry cleaners, bank, gift shop, etc. for their support of our local fundraiser by taking an ad in our program.
Also welcome are support ads from our parishioners.
Please come to the church office and pick up parishioner letters, merchant letters and last year’s programs to use in soliciting ads. It is helpful to show a merchant last year’s program which illustrates how ads are presented in the program, and merchants appreciate having the merchant’s letter for tax purposes.
