Shrine Mont Waiting List -- Due to an unusually high volume of early registrations for our July 13-15 Shrine Mont retreat, we are already filled to capacity! We have started a waiting list in case we have cancellations or if more rooms become available. If you are interested in adding your name to this list, please call the church office at 295-2156.
A Word from the Treasurer – Realizing that many parishioners are away for part of the summer, the Vestry asks that you keep up your pledge payments so that we can meet our regular monthly expenses. We are grateful for your generosity.
News from St. Paul's Ivy - On Wednesday, June 20 at 5:30 p.m., the Rev. Eric Liles will be instituted as the new rector of St. Paul's Ivy.
Generation Wise Meets Marigold Hotel – Generation Wise, a group for the elder members at St. Paul’s, will meet Thursday, June 21, at 12:30 p.m. , in the Lounge. Brenda Peterson, using the film "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel," will lead a discussion on retirement, relocation, and financial concerns. If possible, see the film (shows three times daily at Vinegar Hill, senior rates). We invite you to think about the characters with whom you identify and the ones you’d like to emulate. (N.B. the cast includes an outstanding cast of male and female British actors in their senior years.) Bring a bag lunch to the meeting, and feel free to join us, even if you’ve not participated before. For more information, call Mary Carolyn Lawson, 906-6266.

Reel Theology: Summer films and theological reflections - Again this summer we are planning to show a series of films that work well as a basis for a theological reflection in June and July. Come join us on Wednesday nights beginning June 13. Since we don't have Community Night during the summer, eat before you come, or brown bag it - we'll provide popcorn. The movies will start promptly at 7; the discussion will follow, after a short break. If you want to come just for the movie, that's OK too. We also have one movie for kids of all ages: "Up".
