Can You Speak or Read Another Language?


As we prepare for the Feast of Pentecost on Sunday, May 19th, we recall the gift of the Holy Spirit.  The first disciples experienced this by understanding languages they had never before learned.  If you are able to read or speak a language other than English, please contact Mother Susan in order to participate in the proclamation of the lessons on Pentecost, when we will experience the gift of multiple languages proclaiming the Word of the Lord.  Fluency is not needed.  One merely needs to be able to read aloud in a different language. 


Ladies' Luncheon on Thursday, May 16th


All are welcome to join us on Thursday, May 16th at noon for the Ladies Luncheon at the home of Gerri-Jo Cranmer, 320 Hardscrabble Road, Bernardsville.  Please bring a sandwich; beverages and dessert will be provided.  Please RSVP to Gerri-Jo at 908-766-0199.  We hope to see you there.


Tend the Garden


Stop by to tidy up the Memorial Garden and surround every Thursday at 4:30 pm.   Giving a little of your time by sweeping, weeding, and such will help to keep this lovely area at its best.
