Pray for your clergy here at Prince of Peace

 

One of the commitments members of the Vestry make is to pray for the clergy of Prince of Peace daily. Prayer is the only way clergy can do what we do in ministry with you and the secular world around us. On the 44th anniversary of my ordination to the Diaconate (June 20) I thought I’d share with you a few things about clergy that might help you pray for Brian, George, Kathie, Onesmsus, Steve, Kathie, Peace, and me:

 

Things to know about your clergy:

1. We love God and you a lot.

2. We are painfully limited human beings.

3. We sometimes have a low view of our “performance”.

4. We wish we were a better preacher.

5. We want God’s best for you and your family.

6. Our work knows no time or locational boundaries.

7. We hear more negative information than positive.

8. We have chosen and been called a vocation in which few remain.

9. We need help. We can’t do ministry alone.

10. We want to personally meet all your needs, but know we can’t.

11. We are going to say some dumb things every now and then.

12. We are greatly encouraged by your faithfulness and your faith stories.

13. We are passionate that God’s Word and the Sacraments are practical for you.

14. We long for this church to be your spiritual oasis.

15. We dream for you and your family’s spiritual health.

16. We need to hear that you pray for us.

 

Pray for your clergy.


Father Rand+

Please keep the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in your prayers this week. At this convention, we will elect a new presiding bishop for a 9-year term. 

 

Pray for the Church.

Music Internship

Prince of Peace now has a Music Intern Program. With funding from a generous donor, Prince of Peace is offering a scholarship and internship to a qualified organ student. Our first Intern will be Samuel Cher ("share"). Samuel attends California Lutheran College and is studying mathematics in addition to organ. Though the position is funded from August to May, Samuel is enthusiastic to begin and is volunteering his time during June and July. Samuel will be formally introduced at the service on July 7. During his year at Prince of Peace he will have the opportunity to gain experience with organ in worship, accompanying hymns, psalms and sections of the mass. He will participate in choir, bells, African drums, and organ improvisation. 

Welcome Samuel

“POP’s Normand Aguilar joined Bishop John Taylor and others from across the diocese to walk in the LA Pride Parade on June 8th. Happy Pride Month!"



The following prayer is suggested by Donna Houchen.

 

A Celtic Prayer


Keep hope within, keep despair out; 

Keep peace within, keep turmoil out; 

Keep light within, keep darkness out. 

Circle, O God, those who work for peace.

Encircle them with your presence.


 Amen.

It is time for new Directories! Please find your entry in one of the Directory clipboards following worship and update any changes to your address, phone numbers, and email address. We would like for our new directories to be as accurate and up to date as possible. The clipboards will circulate for the next two weeks. Thank you!

Summer is almost upon us, and at

Prince of Peace that means

One service at 9am for

July & August!

We would love to have EVERYONE donate to the light refreshments during our Patio Coffee Hour. We ask you to provide refreshments TWICE during the summer months. We have divided the parish into 4 "Alphabet Groups" to provide - whatever food item the Holy Spirit moves you to bring to share with all the parishioners! Here is the breakdown of the 4 groups and your date of service:

  • If your LAST NAME begins with A -E:  July   7th & August 4th
  • If your LAST NAME begins with F - L:  July 14th & August 11th
  • If your LAST NAME begins with M - P, July  21st  & August 18th
  • If your LAST NAME begins with R - Z,  July 28th  & August25th

No one is required to bring anything specific,

whatever the spirit moves you to share! 

Please cut whatever you choose to bring into

serving sized pieces - finger foods are best.

Enjoy the summer at Prince of Peace with everyone together!


One service will continue at 9am for September 1st when we will celebrate in RFC as a whole Parish following worship! Not only is this Labor Day weekend – it is also Father Rand’s 70th birthday – be prepared for lots of fun and food as we joyously begin the fall season TOGETHER! 

  September 8th we return to the 8 and 10am

schedule for worship.

June 16th prayer requests and thanksgivings have been compiled and are available here for your prayers and meditation. Updated prayer requests are printed on a WEEKLY basis.
