Sunday was Senior Sunday, and we honored Addison Drake and John Wesley Erskine. It has been a joy to watch them grow and become young adults. We wish them well in whatever life holds for them.
The Needlework Guild will meet this Wednesday at 10:00. They are working hard on the kneelers. Thank you to them; and especially Dolores Urias for taking on this huge task.
The Men's Breakfast is Saturday, May 28 at 8:00 a.m. in the Parish Hall. Morgan Wright is buying the Tacos. Please join us.
Remember, June 12th--The Parish Picnic and Rogation Sunday at the Church. Don't forget your dirt and water.
Choir Practice will be Wednesday at 5:45. This will be the last weekly rehearsal until fall. After this next Sunday, the choir will be taking a semi-vacation for the summer. We will be singing hymns for the offertories. By the way, the choir has noticed that the congregation is getting better and better singing "Hail thee, festival day". It is not easy with the verses not where one would expect. Thanks for your patience.
You may notice some subtle changes in the readings and the prayers. Nothing big-just little things that will help the service go a little smoother. Thank you all.
Sunday, you will note, and hear, No Names in the categories for prayers. If you want someone on the list please write them in. This is an effort to keep the prayer list current and up to date. We are going to UPDATE the Prayer List Quarterly.
Epiphany supports our local food bank, LACare in many ways. Last Saturday the Rural Postal Carriers had its annual drive for food for LACare. Rufus helped sort the food on Saturday. There may be some others from Epiphany who helped. If so, please let us know. Saturday they did some 6300 pounds of food. And Sunday a substantial amount. Thanks to all that participated in one way or another.
Attendance Sunday was 43 . Collection was $2322.

In Michael's Pentecost sermon he spoke of the Holy Spirit as being a teacher, and advocate, a guide and a comforter; then related it to John and Addison. He closed it by saying, "I think of John and Addison today, on the verge of graduating from their formal education thus far and into a new environment of learning. All of these functions of the Holy Spirit are brought to bear on them at this time in their lives--the Spirit is advocating for them, guiding them, comforting them, all by way of teaching them. And it is so for all of us, at whatever point we are in our lives. May we all be thankful for God's Holy Spirit alighting on us all, causing us to burn with love for him and leading us in his ways". Thanks, Michael.
