This is the 4th Sunday after Pentecost.  This past Monday we had our summer parish luncheon at the Pavilion Restaurant in Ashaway.  There were 25 people there ranging in age from 11 to 90.  It was a great celebration!  We will have another one in the Fall- don't miss it!
Last Sunday we enjoyed some music from 2 teenage singers- it was lovely!  Check at the photo on our Facebook page to the right.
This Friday begins the Charlestown Farmer's Market.  It will meet every Friday from 9-noon in the parking lot of Church of the Holy Spirit. We will be selling items from 1000jobs Haiti.  All of the revenue from the sales goes directly to this organization. You can learn more about this organization at their website-
A couple of our parishioners are going to Haiti next month on a mission trip.  This is the last Sunday to bring in donations (see the list on the tab above.)

A couple of our parishioners are going to Haiti next month with a mission team from New Hope Chapel in Richmond.  They are collecting some items to take with them.  You can see the list at the top of this page under the tab- Haiti donations.  They can be dropped off at the church anytime during the month of June.
Have you checked out the church garden?  Lots of perennials are  filling in.  We are lucky to have a master gardener in our parish.

Plans are underway for the Tuesday Tutoring program that will begin in September.  Thanks to a grant from our diocesan Commission on Congregational Development, we are able to sponsor a weekly tutoring program for students in the Charlestown, Richmond and Hopkinton area.  Local educators will be available every Tuesday afternoon to help students with homework and prepare for tests.  Stay tuned for more information.
