Announcements for Whitsunday, June 4
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”
~Acts 2:1-4 NIV

Bob Allison, a colonel and long-time member of Saint Martin of Tours, passed away Sunday. Our deepest prayers and condolences are with the Allison family.
“Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death,
and giving life to those in the tomb.
The Sun of Righteousness is gloriously risen,
giving light to those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death.
The Lord will guide our feet into the way of peace,
having taken away the sin of the world.”
-The Book of Common Prayer, page 500
