Calling all foreign language readers - We invite you to be a part of St. Peter's celebration of the Day of Pentecost (May 15) by participating in the traditional reading of Luke's description of the first Christian Pentecost (Acts 2:1-21) in as many foreign languages as possible. Readings are normally quite short, and your script will be provided to you in advance. We are looking for participants at all services. You may sign up on the narthex table, speak to Deacon Helen, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
