Pohick Episcopal Church

Continuing the Christian Mission of George Washington & George Mason

Pohick Post

Our Easter Season continues this month through Christ's Ascension and Pentecost Sunday (May 20). It's a time of transition, when the apostles sadly bid Christ farewell but soon experience a newfound joy in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Along somewhat similar lines, we will be bidding farewell to our seminarian, Wesley Arning, who will be graduating from seminary, ordained to the diaconate, and taking over as Deacon-in-Charge of a parish outside of Nashville--all in the space of a month! We will be hosting a reception for him and Megan during the 9 am coffee hour on Sunday, May 6th, and we hope that many of you can be there to offer your good wishes to them as they conclude their time with us.

The next Sunday is Mothers' Day, and so we hope that you will join us in honoring our mothers in services that morning. Later that week, we will be holding our Hodge Podge Yard Sale over two days, Friday, May 18 (noon - 5 pm) and Sat, May 19 (6:30 am - 2 pm).

In this month's Post, our Rector writes about the theme of this year's Shrine Mont Parish Retreat (June 22 - 24), Christian Friendship, noting that this year we will be underwriting the cost of teens and young adults (21 and under) who will have to pay only $60 for the weekend. Elsewhere, our Sr. Warden writes about recent Vestry decisions, including our planned upgrade of the playground and addition of an elevator to the Parish House. Meanwhile, Don Brownlee gives his monthly round-up of news from around the Anglican Communion, while Linda Egan previews next month's Sounds of Pohick concert (June 2, 4 pm).

Read about these items and much, much more in this month's EPost!
