Pentecost 2017

On Saturday, June 3rd,  Holy Family held it’s annual Pentecost celebration. This year our prayer service was organized by our own Deacon Cathy Scott. Music was provided by the youth of Holy Family led by guitarist Connor Wilson.

The Pentecost prayer service was held in our outdoor chapel. It was a hot day – we certainly felt the heat of the Holy Spirit!
 

An unusual feature of this year’s service was the reading of a portion of Acts 2 in multiple languages. Readers, shown above, were Jolene Johnston (Polish), Dan Chillemi (Spanish), Ian Johnston (French), Bob Murray (Italian), and Kristine Canter (German.)

 
Following the prayer service we held our traditional “Tongues of Fire” pitch-in picnic with entree items grilled by members of our Brotherhood of St. Andrew chapter. Families enjoyed the beautiful weather, played frisbee, and kids jumped in the bounce house. It was an incredible day of food, fellowship, and the fire of the Holy Spirit.

On Sunday, January 8, 2017 Holy Family celebrated nearly ten years of ministry with the Reverend Michael Galvin. We shared one worship service together at 10 AM and concluded with a special liturgy to end a pastoral relationship. Following the service, we celebrated the entire Galvin family at a reception held in their honor. Additional photos from the celebration are available by clicking HERE.
In an effort to share as much of this special day with family and friends who could not join us, please enjoy the following videos from different portions of the worship service.
 
 

 
 

The staff and congregation of Holy Family Episcopal Church wish Father Mike, Rachelle, Kelsey, and Abby Galvin all of God’s blessings as they embark on another new journey together. We will miss you terribly!
