Dear Friends,

This Sunday we have the tremendous joy of celebrating nine of our Downtown Church youth who are being confirmed in their faith, hope, and love! Three of these nine will also be baptized this Sunday.

Special music will be presented by Members of the Confirmation Class singing "How Far I'll Go," and by the incomparable Lee Wright, Alan Jones, and Taylor Eike! Not to be missed!

My brief meditation will explore "We Will Hold God's People in Our Hearts." Lea Kone and Mary Bookout, who have both done so much to mentor our remarkable confirmands, will be the liturgists this week.

Strawberry Shortcake will be served at noon at the FREE festival prepared by our Congregational Life Team and friends as we celebrate our young people, their teachers, and all the fathers in our congregation on Father's Day.

Sunday School will take place right after the children's time, for the younger children. Nursery Care is available as usual.

Lovingkindness Meditation will begin in the Church Library, starting at 10:10am.

Peace to everyone, everywhere...

The Rev. Dr. Pat Youngdahl, Pastor
Downtown Presbyterian Church
Rochester, New York
