There are four opening prayers at the Sunday Eucharist: English - varies from Sunday to Sunday; Korean - "Merciful Lord, with all our heart, may we adore you and love all the people truly"; Spanish - This also varies from Sunday to Sunday; Kanjobal (a Mayan dialect) - "God, our Father, we always follow Jesus. May he breathe on us his saving Spirit. We pray in his name." The Apostles' Creed is on page 162 in the Gather Book. At the Greeting of Peace, "Peace be with you" is added in Hebrew and Arabic as our prayer for peace in the Holy Land. Shalom aleichem in Hebrew and Asalamu aleikum in Arabic.

United In Gratitude as One Church, let us join together to support this year's Annual Diocesan Appeal. Letters have been mailed to everyone on the St. Mary Parish list. If you did not receive one, please call the office to update our records. Thanks to the 32 families who have already pledged 39% of the $19,265 goal assigned to St. Mary.

St. Mary Cemetery depends on annual donations for upkeep. Families who own lots at the cemetery are reminded to help pay for the costs of mowing and maintenance which this year will come to over $21,000. Your contribution to
St. Mary Cemetery can be put in the collection basket.

The next church cleaning will be on Monday, June 2, at 5 P.M. Volunteers are needed! Enter the church from the northeast door. Everyone is invited to help and supplies will be furnished. Call Midge at 378-9660 for more information.
