We have a new Youth Director.
Paula+ is delighted to announce that she has hired Laurel Coote, who has been a seminarian at St Cross, and will be Ordained a Transitional Deacon on June 2. Laurel has worked with teens in youth ministry, has taken them on mission trips and pilgrimages and is really looking forward to being a part of our parish family.  St Francis helped to sponsor Laurel during her training - see Bellringer February 2018 . Look out for full details in our June Bellringer!
Accommodation Needed
Parishioner Jayne Bray is looking for a new place to live. Her lease expires on June 29th, and she is looking for somewhere that is private (not shared room/bath), unfurnished, and will accept her 15 year-old 16 pound Shih Tzu. Jayne works odd hours so is frequently up and on the computer and/or phone in the middle of the night, but is otherwise pretty quiet. Her current landlord (of 5 years) will give positive recommendation. Budget is about $1400 or absolute max $1500, depending upon utilities. If you know of anywhere that would suit, or have any ideas, please let Jayne know. Many, many thanks in advance.

Silent Auction Donations
One of the highlights of the Show is the Silent Auction that takes place during the Gala on Wednesday evening. Please contact Gayle Taylor or Hank Gatlin if you would like to donate fun, special or unique items like paintings, collectibles, event tickets, restaurant gift cards, dinner parties, golf or sailing or other outdoor activities or whatever you think our community would love to bid on. The sky is the limit!  Thank you for your consideration and for your support.
