This Week at Holy Family

THIS WEEK AT HOLY FAMILY                                                        

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 Pentecost this Sunday, June 9!  After worship, we will share our regular monthly potluck meal. 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 are June 12 and 26.

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

WORSHIP IN THE PARK We will have a summer celebration and worship in God’s great outdoors Sunday, July 14 at 10:30 a.m. at The Southwest Area Node (SWAN) Park, at Jaguar Drive and HWY 599. All are welcome.  As it is the second Sunday of the month, we will share our monthly potluck. Please bring lawn chairs and invite your friends!
