Mother Lily’s Message

 

Dear Friends,

     The good news is that people in our parish are getting vaccinated. The bad news is that the number of cases of Covid-19 in the state are on the rise. We have a Vestry Retreat coming up this Sunday and the purpose is to plan. Planning is one of the hardest things to do right now in the midst of uncertainty. We will do our best and communicate to all of you what we think we might be able to accomplish in this next year. If you have any thoughts on this please communicate them to me or someone on the vestry between now and Sunday. I want to make sure that we hear from everyone.
     I am going to start up the youth group again. I have some big plans for this group. Our first meeting will be on May 23 at 4 pm. Spread the word. We will provide dinner for the youth. The group is for ages 12 and up. Friends are welcome.
     We are also planning on doing a Good News Garden. This was a project we put on hold last spring because we were not ready to commit ourselves. We now have someone to build our raised beds, so with this and a group to plant, weed, water, and distribute it appears we are ready to go ahead. If you would like to be part of this team, please let me, or Michelle Bourdon, know.
     Easter is a season to note the resurrections in life. Throughout our lives, we experience many resurrections. Take time to recognize these micro-resurrections and feel how blessed we are because as something dies or goes away or is lost there is always something else that comes into our lives which keeps it rich and alive. Notice these blessings and thank God who makes this possible.

Warmly and with many blessings,
Mother Lily+
