The Dean will have a book study once more this summer. The book, Barchester Towers, looks at how a cathedral in nineteenth century England handles the coming of a new bishop and his wife. I will not spoil the plot, but I think you will enjoy the book. The opportunity to discuss the book will be a good time, too!
This year, our Vacation Bible School will be Hometown Nazareth: Where Jesus Was a Kid. VBS will take place June 9-11, with set up happening after church on June 7 and Monday, June 8. Volunteer opportunities are still available. Also, we have a wish list of several items and the opportunity to assist us in procuring the items. Please look further in our newsletter, on page 9, to see if you can help. If you would like to assist us, please contact me or Alison Mitchell.
The EYC is getting together this month to catch a Bay Bears game. Our youth are invited to participate in two events during the consecration (at Wilmer Hall and Beckwith) and will participate in the Jonathan Myrick Daniels Pilgrimage in August. Sarah Bolt and I are working on the program year activities.
And, of course this summer, the Cathedral is hosting the consecration of our new bishop. There are still opportunities to help. Information is in this newsletter and on the Cathedral web site. We have sign-up sheets on the ministry table in the Chapter House. Please consider how you can assist for this important event.
Finally, in all that we do at the Cathedral, I ask for your prayers. I would love for as many folks to participate in our offerings, but I know there are conflicts. We can use your prayers, though. Praying is something all of us can do, no matter how old or young, whether we are traveling the world or limited to a bed. The Cathedral always can use your prayers. Have a great June everyone. I hope to see you at church!
