May 2015

Welcome to the Pohick Post Online!

Our Easter Season continues this month through Christ's Ascension and Pentecost Sunday (May 24). It is a time of transition, when the apostles sadly bid Christ farewell but soon experience a newfound joy in the power of the Holy Spirit.

There's a fair amount on the schedule in the coming weeks, beginning with the Martha Guild's Wine-tasting event on Saturday, May 2, from 4 - 7 pm at the home of Reed and Carol Heddleston. Tickets are $30 a person and can be bought at the door or in advance from Helen Parker at helenandjeffp@verizon.net. Proceeds will go to this summer's renovations of the Kitchen. Speaking of those renovations, the next morning, Sunday, May 3rd during the Sunday school hour, Stew Remaly, Renovations Chair, will lead a forum on the planned improvements.

The following Saturday, May 9, will be our annual Spring Clean-up from 9 am - 2 pm. Come on out and help work on a variety of projects. A gourmet luncheon will be served at half-time! One week later on Saturday, May 16, we will be having our Hodge Podge Yard Sale, 6:30 am - 2 pm. We'll be accepting donations up until the day before for those of you involved in some Spring Cleaning at home. The next day, we'll have our Spring Activities Fair after all three services. Finally, don't forget to honor mom on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 10th, by gathering family together in church that morning.

In this month's Post, our Rector writes about Christian Contentment, the topic of this year's Shrine Mont Parish Retreat, Friday, June 26 - Sunday, June 28. We are now accepting applications for this always relaxing and spiritually enlivening weekend! Also, don't let cost be an issue: there is plenty of scholarship money available for parishioners who would like to participate in the sessions; simply speak to the Rector privately.

Elsewhere, our Assistant reflects upon the virtues of reading a story rather than waiting for the movie to come out, while our Sr. Warden reports on recent vestry deliberations. Read also about this summer's Vacation Bible School, as well as the upcoming Sounds of Pohick concert in June.

You'll find stories about these and many more happenings in this month's EPost!
