Notices: Easter 5, 7 May 2023
Good day dear friends,
Today’s Gospel is an invitation to know more deeply who Jesus is; and as we know more and more who Jesus is, we come to know who God is; and as we come to know who God is, we come to know our own deepest and truest divine self. As we continue on our Easter journey, may we see, know and love Christ in each other.
Holy Communion every Sunday at 11am.

The Diocesan “Set Sail” meeting for our region will be at St.Matthew’s in Bay Roberts, 7pm May 16.
The purpose of these sessions is to introduce Set Sail: Charting the Course for Christ’s Church to the people of the Diocese. Bishop Sam will discuss his vision for the Diocese and the goals of the Set Sail strategic plan. Participants will consider how the goals can be interpreted and realized in their own local contexts. Attendees should be able to return to their parishes with a good understanding of what comes next on our journey, together.
Father Richard Rohr is a contemporary leader in the deepening faith and spiritual practice movement throughout the Christian church. If you would like a little more help and encouragement in deepening your own faith and spiritual practice, in addition to what is available in our parish, go to www.cac.org, and at the top of that page, subscribe to Father Richard’s daily e-mails. I highly recommend it.
A new six week Revive course will begin on Tuesday, May 9, “Called for Ministry.” Please keep this important discipling ministry in your prayer.
“Revive” is a program that helps equip lay leaders to be spiritual leaders. The participants will learn about themselves and discern their life’s calling; explore their faith journey and enter into a relationship with God; enjoy a sense of community and deepened relationships with peers; gain confidence with prayer, scripture, and spiritual leadership; and discern gifts for their calling to serve God’s world. Please pray for those participating in this program this spring.

For those joining us on-line, we invite you to use this prayer for Spiritual Communion:
Lord Jesus, I believe that you are truly present in the Holy Sacrament. However, since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, I beseech you to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself with you, and embrace you with all the affections of my soul. Let me never be separated from you. Let me live and die in your love. Amen.
