Next Sunday, May 12. we welcome outstanding drummer Daniel Mills, a student at the University of New England.  He will be playing drums along with various music pieces throughout the service.  The music format will not be the usual Episcopal format, but more like the music often played by a Salvation Army band.  Daniel’s presence is made possible by the Barbara MacDougall Found.

                                                                                    OUTREACH_____________________________________________

On Sunday, May 5, we will once again be selling Equal Exchange Fair Trade chocolate bars ($5/each or $12/3 bars).  Proceeds from the sale of these tasty treats will support the work of Konbit Sante’s health partnership in Cap Haitien, Haiti.  Also for Konbit, we will be selling papier-mache hummingbirds made by Haitian artists.  Both the candy bars and the birds could make lovely personal Mother’s Day gifts that also support the livelihoods of our brothers and sisters in Haiti and Latin America.

The St. Elizabeth’s Pantry volunteer schedule has changed from a six-week to a four-week rotation.  Therefore, St. Nick’s will now be scheduled with St. Mary’s on the second Tuesday of each month starting with May 14.  If you are interested in this ministry, please see Terry Foster.  Thanks.

                                                                               Bishop’s Visit______________________________________________

Please join us on Sunday, May 19, as we welcome the Rt. Rev. Stephen Lane for his final visit to St. Nick’s before his retirement in June.  We wish Bishop and Mrs. Lane all the best for a happy and healthy retirement.

_____________________________OTHER NEWS______________________________________________

We need some more handmade washcloths for our “welcome bags.”  Please see Kelly Martino for the pattern if you would like to make a few.  Thanks.
