Get ready for a wonderful Pentecost celebration on Sunday!
This Sunday, June 4, will be an amazing and exciting day at St. John’s! We will officially welcome Fr. Christopher Potter on his first Sunday as Vicar of St. John’s. We will be joined at the 10 a.m. service by some of our Interfaith friends, and The Episcopal Chorale will make a return appearance as guest musicians alongside our very own and amazing choir! Following the 10 a.m. service we will hold a reception for all our guests and congregation in the Cardinal Café (the school lunch area behind the gym). St. John’s will provide the sandwiches. If you haven’t had a chance to sign up to bring something to add to our lunch, please email Loreen Guilford, lorguilford@cox.net. We will have our regular Sunday service at 8 a.m.

And what do I wear to church on Pentecost Sunday! Red, of course!

Don’t forget our very special forum at 9 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room!
The last session of our Hinduism discussion will begin at 9 a.m. in the Multipurpose Room. Our own Gerry Larson will conclude this series by introducing Swami Dhyanayogananda, who is the monk and director of the Ramakrishna Monastery in Trabuco Canyon. The Swami will speak about his own spiritual journey. The class will last an hour, so if you attend the 8 a.m. service, grab a cup of coffee and head on over to the MPR or come early for the 10 a.m. service! See you there!
