AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE…Wednesday, June 5, 2019, 1:30-6:30 PM sponsored by the St. Paul Fire Dept. There is a very critical shortage of blood available now. The ARC has issued an alert for Type O blood, but all types are in much need. Last month the Red Cross collected approximately 11,500 fewer donations than needed and currently has six units of Type O blood on hand for every 100,000 people even though more than double that amount is needed every day. Please take time to stop and make your donation and truly make a difference. You can schedule your appt. by going to www.redcrossblood.org or simply drop by. Refreshments will be available. If you have questions, please call Mary Ellen (503-633-8341) or Carol (503-633-4141).

FAMILY FAITH SHARING
Sixth Sunday of Easter
Revelation 21:10-14, 22-23; Psalm 67:1, 2, 4, 5, 7;
John 14:23-26

Jesus Sends the Spirit

  Jesus said: “Those who love me, obey me. Then my Father loves them and lives in them. What I say does not really come from me, but from the Father who sent me. The Father will send the Holy Spirit to take my place and help you. The Spirit will teach you everything. The Spirit will remind you of what I said while I was with you.”

  Most people have someone in their lives in whom they confide and turn to when they need help and guidance – someone they trust to be supportive always. Today Jesus tells us he is sending someone like that into our lives. He is sending the Holy Spirit to teach and help us.
