This Week at Holy Family

THURSDAY NIGHT BIBLE STUDY TAKES SUMMER BREAK Our last bible study before the summer is tonight. We gather at 5:30, start at 6 and end by 7 p.m. at Santa Fe Place Mall Food Court. 

JUNE-AUGUST SERVING SCHEDULE The summer serving schedule for all Lectors, Prayers of the People Officiants, Lay Eucharistic Ministers (LEM) and the Altar Guild is now available on the church website. Many thanks to our new Lector Sharon O’Malley and new LEM Jane Nantz for offering their gifts!  A few copies of the schedule are also posted on the bulletin board in the hallway at church. Please take as needed and thank you for serving!

SUNDAY, JUNE 2 HEALING After worship on the first Sunday of the month, healing or unction is offered.  If you are in need of healing of spirit, mind or body, please wait until your turn by the healing corner. The priest will ask for your prayer request and offer hands-on healing.

HOLY HIKES Our next church hike with leader Bill Cooper will be Saturday, June 8. The Las Conchas trail winds along the West Fork of the Jemez River and is nearly level for about 1.5 miles (3 miles round trip.) The hike will take about three hours and the drive is about one hour and forty minutes each way. We will see plenty of technical climbers along the way, as this is the most popular climbing site in northern New Mexico. We will meet at church at 8:30 a.m. and then carpool to the site.  Wear comfortable hiking shoes and sun protection. Bring lots of water, snacks and rain gear.

PENTECOST 2019 Celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit and the church’s birthday on Pentecost Sunday, June 9.  We will share our regular monthly potluck meal, plus a special red velvet cake will be provided for this special holy day! Wear red, representing the Holy Spirit coming down on God’s people like tongues of fire.

PRAYER SQUARES This group meets for knitting, crocheting, support and fellowship the second and fourth Wednesdays from 6-8 p.m. at church.  Next gatherings June 12 and 26.

SERVICE COMMITTEE MEETING Sunday, June 23 after worship, a Service Committee meeting will be held to discuss upcoming service projects.  Please join us as we look for opportunities to serve the south side of Santa Fe.

WOMEN OF THE DIOCESE OF THE RIO GRANDE is sponsoring a one-day women's retreat, "Blessed to be Blessing," on Saturday, July 27 at St. Paul's Peace in Las Vegas, NM. There will be a carpool traveling.  Cost is $20 which includes lunch.  Please contact Camille Donoghue atcamille@donoghues.net.
