Our monthly Sunday Pot Luck Meal will not be held the first week in June, due to the festal meals in the weeks at the end of May. We will hold a Pot Luck meal on Monday evening, June 28th following the Liturgy for the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul.
Calling everyone (especially Men): We need more help in cleaning up following Coffee Hour and meals at the Church (especially the monthly Pot Luck meals). Since the cooking and set up are usually done by the women, this is a terrific time for the men in our parish to also serve. Please remember that those hosting coffee would always appreciate a little help in setting things back right afterwards. The more hands, the quicker the work.
* The Fast of the Apostles will begin tomorrow.
* This year's Parish Life Conference is being hosted by St. George's church in Jacksonville, FL June 16-20. Registration materials are available online.
* We will celebrate the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul with Orthros followed by the Divine Liturgy and a Pot Luck meal on Monday evening, June 28th .
* Our next time to serve a meal at the Stewpot will be on October 30th .
If you are the last to leave the building, please make sure that the heating and cooling unit in the Fellowship Hall is set to the optimum temperature for the building when unoccupied.

Quotable: "Be careful not to waste your precious energies on redundant worries and vanities, which will turn to dust one day. When you do this, you not only tire your body, but you also scatter your mind aimlessly, offering God only your fatigue and yawns at the time of prayer–much like the sacrifice offered by Cain. It follows that your inner state will be like that of Cain's: you will be full of anxiety and sighs, provoked by the devil standing by your side."
- Elder Paisios the Athonite
