Kristopher Lindquist Chant Sing Wednesday, June 1, 7-8:30 p.m.

Some of the service music we sing each Sunday has been written by my former friend and colleague the late Kristopher Lindquist. Many individuals have expressed an opportunity to learn more of this music. You are invited to do so on Wednesday, June 1, 7-8:30. Our new assistant pianist, Karina Ibarra will provide piano accompaniment as we learn some new chants. Many of the chants we will learn will be sung at the next Celtic Eucharist which will be held on Thursday, June 23. Karina will be the pianist on that evening. Please join me on Wednesday, June 1 at 7:00 as we explore some new chants.

Graduation Sunday Sunday, June 5

On Sunday, June 5, we will offer prayers of thanksgiving for all members of St. John the Baptist who will be graduating this spring from Junior High, High School, College and Graduate Programs. As per parish tradition a roster of graduates from our extended families will also appear in the June edition of the newsletter. A sign-up sheet is at the Ministry Table for names to be listed.
