Prince of Peace Episcopal Church  

is called to know, love and serve  

Jesus as Savior and Lord,  

to share His healing and transformation with all people.


In Memoriam   
We send prayers and condolences to the family and friends of Bill Hunt and Sidney Wrigley.
A Memorial Service for Bill will be held on Saturday, June 29 at 10am with a reception following on the patio. Interment of Sidney's ashes will follow the 10am worship service on Sunday, June 30th. The Altar Guild and Episcopal Church Women will host a reception in the Family Center for Sidney's friends and family following the interment.

May Bill and Sidney's souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. 
And may light perpetual shine upon them.

Pentecost 2

Worship Without Walls-   begins again Sunday, June 23 at 5pm through September 1st at Shadow Ranch Park, on Vanowen between Shoup and Fallbrook on the north side of the street. Our purpose  for WWW has always been to take our worship and our witness outside into God's creation. This year we would also like to emphasize the availability of an alternative time for our parishioners to worship with Prince of Peace during the busy summer months.  See George Packer for more information or email him at praywithoutwalls@gmail.com.

What fun it was to celebrate with everyone on Pentecost! Over 300 friends, old and new, joined us for our outdoor extravaganza following an especially glorious church service. Everything came together to make this day a memorable one. Special thank yous and kudos to each of you - you know who you are- who stepped in where help was needed and contributed to it all working perfectly! Beautiful certificates from the City of Los Angeles were presented to both Prince of Peace and to Father Rand by Councilman Bob Blumenfield; and Brian Tucker presented unique glass sculptures of our church window, created by Pastor Kathie and Hakob, to Founding Members of the Legacy Society. The highlight of the presentations was the gift to Father Rand of a $1500 gift card to the Apple Store for him to purchase the iphone of his dreams, as stated by Junior Warden, Elizabeth Bates. Gary Palmquist eloquently expressed everyone's appreciation and respect for Father Rand. Once all the bills are paid, the additional monies will be gifted to Father Rand as well. Pictures  are now available on our web site.

Work Party Thanks- to all who helped give our grounds a "spring cleaning" inside and out! The extra hands allowed us to accomplish so much! Have you noticed the two newly installed dog stations?

Tuna / Peanut Butter Sunday-  Every first Sunday of the month is a great day to remember the Pantry! Put an extra can or two of tuna and jar of peanut butter in your shopping cart for the Food Pantry and drop it off in the narthex on Sunday, July 7.  Thank you for your ongoing support!
Health Ministry Newsletter-   High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is the primary or contributing cause of over 1,000 deaths per day in the United States. Seven out of ten people having their first heart attack have high blood pressure. Eight out of ten people having their first stroke have high blood pressure. Sadly only 54% of people with high blood pressure have it under control despite proven interventions to control it. It is known as the "silent killer," because very few people have symptoms indicating that their blood pressure is elevated. Pick up a copy of this month's newsletter in the narthex or  click here to read now. -Ann Lowe, Parish Nurse 
Advance Directive:  Every adult should have an advance directive to guide medical treatment if they are not able to speak for themselves.  Click here to find resources to help you create one.  "In planning for serious illness, it always seems too soon, until it's too late." Dr. Ira Byock, M.D.
