 Sunday, May 31: It's Pentecost! As we conclude the Easter Season we celebrate what it means for all of us to be gifted with the Spirit and send "Out into the Street". We also honour how in the scripture story (Acts 2:1-21) all of the people who hear the apostles and other disciples preaching, understand them even though they all speak different languages (more on that in "Worship Notes"). We will celebrate communion virtually like we did on Easter Sunday so please have with you some bread and wine/juice, or if that isn't handy for you, another staple food and beverage to consume as part of the online celebration.

 Sunday, June 1: The first Sunday in June is when the youth choir traditionally puts on a musical. We don't want to break with tradition, even in a lockdown, so we will be broadcasting a recording of last year's musical as well as revealing who the secret friends have been this past year. We plan to honour graduates as well so if there is someone in you family graduating from any level of education, please let James know (james@rhuc.org).
