MEN WILL REWARD HOSPITALITY COMMITTEE
Saturday, June 24

Steak Dinner The Men of Resurrection plan to reward the Hospitality Committee for their dedication and hard work by hosting a steak dinner for Committee members at the Biggs home on Saturday, June 24 at 5:30 pm.

The menu will include nice steaks, accompanying sides, beverages, appetizers and desert.  Chef Rich Conn will cook and prepare the menu. Men willing to help should arrive at the Biggs' house by 3:00 pm.  Festivities for the Hospitality Team will begin at 4 pm with dinner served at 5:30 pm. 

We also need donations to offset the food costs (which are not being provided by the church).  If you can help, please give your donation to the church and note it is for the Hospitality Dinner.
  
The guys will also enjoy fellowship, but eat separately and have grilled brats and accompanying sides once the Hospitality Team is cared for.  This will be a great time to honor our ladies who work so hard for hospitality, AND a great time for the men to share time together!

FINDING FAITH THROUGH FICTION BOOK CLUB A Morbid Taste of Bones
Next meeting this Monday, August 7 at 7 pm

The Finding Faith Through Fiction Book Club will not meet in July.  The next meeting will be at the church on Monday, August 7 at 7 pm to discuss the novel A Morbid taste for Bones by Ellis Peters.

A Welsh Benedictine monk living at Shrewsbury Abbey in western England, Brother Cadfael spends much of his time tending the herbs and vegetables in the garden-but now there's a more pressing matter. Cadfael is to serve as translator for a group of monks heading to the town of Gwytherin in Wales. The team's goal is to collect the holy remains of Saint Winifred, which Prior Robert hopes will boost the abbey's reputation, as well as his own. But when the monks arrive in Gwytherin, the town is divided over the request.

THOUGHTS FROM FATHER DAVID
Vacation allows us all to recharge 

Many thanks for the opportunity to get away to visit our son in California! Debbie and I drove to the Napa Valley to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes after visiting the national parks of "Arches" and the "Great Basin". We so enjoy driving through our beautiful country.   Many thanks also for your warm welcome to Fr. Marshall Scott on Trinity Sunday. Click Here to Read the Entire Message
