ORDINATION TO THE PRIESTHOOD OF THE REV. JEFF HUAL

Please note that the 9 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. Masses are combined this day. Morning Prayer will be said at 7:30 a.m. and a Low Mass at 7:45 a.m.
Evensong & Benediction today, May 31, is the final service for our Boys' and Girls' Choirs (the St. Paul's Choir School) before their summer break. We thank them and their parents for their tremendous dedication, a commitment that makes possible the very high standard of their music-making. Please join us this evening at 6:00 p.m. to hear beautiful music and to give the children a good send-off. If you have not heard them sing recently or at all, prepared to be "blown away"! They will return on Sunday, September 13.
Speaking of Evensong & Benediction, the full Parish Choir (adults) will sing a special liturgy with Procession of the Blessed Sacrament on Corpus Christi, Sunday, June 7 (at the usual time of 6:00 p.m.). After that, Evensong & Benediction from Sunday, June 14, through Sunday, September 6, will be sung by quartets from the choir, thanks to the generosity of several donors (with the exception of July 5, when the service will be sung by a visiting choir). Evensong & Benediction will continue throughout the summer at the usual time of 6:00 p.m.
To welcome the new Rector, COE is organizing a bulletin board display of photos of parishioners and friends of St. Paul's. If you wish to be included on the board, please send a photo of yourself to SPKSParishdirectory [at] gmail.com, identifying all persons in the photo in the body of the email. If you are unable to send in a photo, Janet Wamsley has also volunteered to take photos of parishioners on June 7, at the coffee hour between the 9:00 and 11:15 Masses.
INTERIM RECTOR’S EMAIL
The Interim Rector’s email will be deactivated for church-related business at noon on Thursday, May 28th. Personal emails will be forwarded to him into the month of June.
FAREWELL SOCIAL FOR BISHOP JIM
In addition to our festive coffee hours on Bishop Jim’s last day, Sunday, May 31, we will have a gathering in the Dining Hall on Saturday, May 30 between the hours of 4 and 6 p.m. with light refreshments served. We realized during preparations that what began as an invitation-only event for parish leadership should be opened to all.
EVENSONG IN FRENCH
There was some talk a few weeks back about Evensong in French (followed by a wine and cheese tasting) on Saturday, May 30. Various logistical factors have obliged us to put the gathering on hold. It is our hope to host the event in the Fall. We will keep you posted.

Anything received after this deadline will not be able to be included as these materials are produced and published by parish volunteers on Wednesdays.

HYMN SING: Save the Date
Robert McCormick and John Bohl will lead us in a hymn sing on Friday evening, June 12 at 7:30 p.m., to be followed by an Ice Cream social offered by the Commission on Mission. A free will offering will benefit the outreach ministries of the parish. Plan to come and bring a friend.

GRATE PATROL – YOU ARE NEEDED – WON'T YOU HELP?

Please give your prayerful consideration to helping, and if you feel you can, contact any member of the CoM (Ann Korky, Rhoda Geasland, Tina Mallett, Scott Spaulding or Jerry Cassidy) or email Ann at akkorky [at] gmail.com.
FOGGY BOTTOM FOOD PANTRY DONATIONS NEEDED
Foggy Bottom Food Pantry: Cuts in the federal food stamp program mean those in need are even more reliant on food pantries to meet their families' basic nutritional needs. Won't you share with those who need your help by bringing non-perishable, non-breakable (no glass jars) food items to St. Paul’s and placing them in the Commission on Mission basket near the baptismal font at the rear of the church? Canned fruits and vegetables are especially welcome. Your generosity can make a real difference.
This week we pray for:
