This Sunday we will give thanks for our graduating high school seniors, offering prayers for them and their families and asking God’s blessing on their next adventures. This year we will recognize not only the graduates in the Cathedral Family, but also those among the young men of the Mobile Kappa League, who with their leader Carl Cunningham, Jr. will join us this Sunday.
We will also give thanks for the good and faithful work of our Christian Formation teachers and helpers, who have loved and cared for our Cathedral Family children this program year.
The picnic following our worship will celebrate the end of our program year, as the school year draws to a close and we look forward to summer vacation. Rather than going to Sunday School this week, our children will have a bouncing house in the garden. Fried chicken and trimmings, even ice cream sandwiches, are on the menu. We will have tables and chairs outside, but you are also welcome to bring a blanket to spread in the garden, if you would like.
Appropriately, this is also Beckwith Sunday, when throughout the diocese we give thanks for the ministry of our camp and conference center. Our prayers will be the “Beckwith Sunday Prayers,” and you will find more information about Beckwith and its programs in the bulletin notes.
Come this Sunday to continue the Easter celebration of our risen Lord, and stay to enjoy fellowship in the Body of Christ here at Christ Church Cathedral.
