Pentecost

Pentecost 1PENTECOST: We are going to celebrate Pentecost this weekend as a Creation Day using the theme ‘Send forth your spirit and renew the face of the earth’. After the 10am Mass we are having a small picnic on the grass opposite the church (or parish centre depending on the weather). Please join us if you can.

LIVE SIMPLY GROUP: A base group has now met and we are hoping to involve as many of the parish as we can in this. We are not going to have a parish meeting on Sat 22nd June as it is the Kendal Unity Festival but we will at some later date. This Sunday there is a questionnaire in the bulletin about how we are already ‘Living Simply’. It would be a great help if you could fill this in so we can get a feel for how much we are already doing in the parish with regard to climate change. Thank you.

PENTECOST – ECUMENICAL EVENT – 8th June. I am helping Jean Radley of St. George’s with an outreach event on Saturday 8th June as part of an ecumenical venture in Kendal for Pentecost. She is finding a place among the shops for us to have a walk-in prayer space. This needs people to be there to welcome visitors and support with cakes, biscuits, refreshments on the day, and pastoral support. This is one way for us to reach out to people who may not find us in church. Would anyone be able to help? Please sign up at the back of church. Thanks, Fr Hugh
