Collect for the Sunday of Pentecost
Almighty God, on this day you opened the way of eternal life to every race and nation by the promised gift of your Holy Spirit: Shed abroad this gift throughout the world by the preaching of the Gospel, that it may reach to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Our UTO Box
When we put a dollar into our UTO Box we help support an old yet still effective ministry of the Episcopal Church, the United Thank Offering ministry. Through UTO, we are invited to ‘embrace and deepen a personal daily spiritual discipline of gratitude.’ Through UTO we say thank you for the good things and sense God’s presence even in the bad. Through UTO our little parish supports mission projects all over the world! Deacon Jim relates that in a recent trip to our companion diocese in Brasilia he visited a new after-school program where the computer lab was funded by UTO. Who knows, it could have been our dollars in that classroom!
Consider this, 100% of our dollars go to the intended recipients!
Please continue to support UTO. Every time we celebrate a birthday or raise a concern or give thanks for something in our lives we contribute to the welfare of the world! Blessings!
