There will be a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the church narthex. The church will supply the meat. Please bring lawn chairs and weather appropriate clothing, especially for the evening campfire. (P.S.: Coffee and doughnuts will be served at the church following liturgy on the 23rd.)

Please NO FINE GRIND as it cannot be used.
Lawn Mowers Needed!

We still need a few more people to sign up to mow the lawn for the end of July and the month of August. A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board in the narthex. Please take time to put your name down to volunteer.

EARLY BIRD CAMPER REGISTRATION IS HERE!!!
This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for... it's time to register your child for St. Peter the Aleut Orthodox Summer Camp 2019!! And if you get your child's completed registration form in before June 23 rd you will receive $25 off your camper registration fee!! Deadline for registrations is July 14th. Camp is open to anyone in grade 2-9 as of June 1, 2019. Forms are available on the display case in the Narthex, and completed forms can be sent to Fr. Daniel & Matushka Valerie Friesen (all their info is in the camper forms). Please reach out to Katherine Bessette, Fr. Vincent or Fr. Daniel if you have any questions. We’re looking forward to seeing you all this summer!
Today, following the Divine Liturgy, we will be praying three long prayers known as the "Kneeling Prayers".
When you enter the Church, be sure to pick up one of the kneeling mats to use (you can place it under your chair until you need it).
During the 50 days of Pascha/Ascension, no kneeling is done during our prayers since kneeling and prostrating are postures of repentance and sorrow for our sins (and we don't do this while celebrating the joyful feast of the Resurrection). This changes on Pentecost Sunday when we kneel for the first time since Pascha.
Also, since the Holy Spirit is now sent to us from the Father, we begin once again to sing the hymn “O Heavenly King” (which was not sung during the past 50 days while the bridegroom was with us).
