PENTECOST PLANS

Pentecost (the Feast day that celebrates the gift of the Holy Spirit, and marks the transition between Easter season and the season after Pentecost) is Sunday, May 20th. This year, we would like to continue the joyful prayer flags we did last year in the church, AND have a celebratory picnic outside, weather permitting! If you would like to help plan the prayer flag creation and implementation, AND/OR the picnic, please contact Mother Anne (anne@stgregoryschurch.org). It is going to be a great way to celebrate the gift of the Spirit and share that joy with the community!-\

 

MEMORIAL GARDEN UPDATE

Keep a lookout for the Memorial Garden coming into bloom for its first full spring season. Lots of colors and native foliage. Eubanks Environmental via David Eubanks has been our "Green Thumb". All the main physical work on the Memorial Garden is complete: concrete, plantings, teak benches. Remaining are survey location markers, map update, and in-memory plans. Expenses are 66% of the original Elliott donation plus additional donations. The map update and in-memory plans are to be handled by the vestry in line with new signage standards being developed. Dedication of the Memorial Garden is planned this spring - summer.

 

A follow-up committee meeting is Monday April 16. If you have any questions or inputs please contact one of the committee members: Fran Ingram, Scott Elliott, Jim Mitchell, Kevin Christenson, Mary Maraist, Sybil Ten Eyck, David Schaper, Yvonne Sharpe, Jim Swager (chair).
