Bishop Curry to Preach at the Royal Wedding!
This Saturday, May 19
Do you remember Presiding Bishop Curry preaching at St Francis a few years ago? Now, following our lead, Kensington Palace have announced "Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have asked that The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, give the address at their wedding.” Curry has said: “The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God, and is the key to life and happiness.”

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.
