Thus you are no longer aliens in a foreign land, but fellow-citizens with God's people, members of God's household. You are built upon the foundation laid by the apostles and prophets, and Christ Jesus himself is the foundation-stone. In Him the whole building is bonded together and grows into the holy temple in the Lord. In Him you too are being built with all the rest into a spiritual dwelling for God.

Our annual winter Gift Auction has become a highly anticipated event through out the area. It is always sold out. It is our biggest and most successful fund raiser of the year. We would like to have a major fund raising event in the summer/fall that would complement our Gift Auction. As you are aware, we are all giving as much as we can to St. Mary's and yet, each year we are forced to dip into our investments to make up the shortfall. We are looking for ideas to involve the community outside of St. Mary's in supporting our fund raising. Just like we do with the Gift Auction. If you have any ideas or interest in helping the Vestry with identifying a summer/fall fund raising event, please meet with us on Sunday, May 17 at 9:15 am. If you cannot attend and want to contribute your ideas, please talk to any Vestry member. Thanks, Jack Greene

Acts 3:12-19

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure... More

1 John 3:1-7

Jesus himself stood among the disciples and their companions and said to them, "Peace be with you." They were startled and terrified, and thought that they were seeing a ghost. He said to them, "Why are you frightened, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself. Touch me and see; for a ghost does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have." And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, "Have you anything here to eat?" They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate in their presence...
