Tomorrow: The Feast of Pentecost!
Please join us outdoors on the Feast of Pentecost tomorrow, May 23, at 10:00 a.m.! In addition to celebrating the gift of the Holy Spirit (the "Birthday of the Church"), we will bid farewell to our Senior Seminarian Intern, Robin Reed, and her husband, Mike Brown, and we will thank them both for their many contributions to this parish over the past two years. 
Music will be courtesy of the always-festive Joseph Arkfeld Quartet...and rumor has it that there may be cupcakes!
Remember to wear RED, if possible; orange or yellow work, too. We hope to see you in the morning!
If you will be worshipping with us online, please click here to access the service bulletin. You will want to print it in advance, as it will not be projected on the screen.
It is not necessary to register in advance. We ask that those who are not fully vaccinated wear masks during the service; others who feel more comfortable masking are also encouraged to do so. 
Please Complete the
Indoor Regathering Survey
We Want Your Input!
Given the recent changes in CDC and Diocesan COVID guidelines, the Regathering Team would like to hear from you about your willingness to attend services indoors at St. Dunstan's this summer. Please take a couple of minutes to respond to this brief survey by TOMORROW, May 23, 2021. Your responses are not binding, of course, but this data will assist in our planning for the weeks ahead. Thank you!

Updating the Prayer List
If you have placed someone on the St. Dunstan's Prayer List (see below), I would be very grateful if you would please update me as to how that person is doing.
If s/he needs to remain on the list longer, we gladly will continue to pray as long as necessary. However, if that person is ready to "graduate" from the list, we will be delighted to thank God for that joyous milestone!
