YOUNG ADULTS AT EMMANUEL
Summer is in full swing at Emmanuel, and the first young adults event is only about a week away! On June 18th, join Marisa and Trent at their home for a meal, good ol’ Christian fellowship, and a brief discussion on St. Ignatius’ examen. The night begins at 6 p.m. and will run until 8. Get in touch with Marisa for more details and to RSVP!
Want to help feed local households? Sign up by June 15 for our 2-week Meals On Wheels ministry in July. For the weeks of July 16 and 23, we're looking for both a driver and a runner each day. The process takes about an hour total. Contact Deacon Chris to learn more!
48 HOURS OF PEACE
On Friday June 25 from 6 - 7 p.m. in Douglass Park there will be a multi-faith prayer service for peace in the Champaign-Urbana communities. Following the service there will be a reception in the park pavilion. Deacon Chris is co-chair of that reception and could use volunteers to help with set up, serving and clean up. Please contact her if you would be willing to assist.
JESUS' LOVE AT MASS
In 2020-2021, some Emmanuelites have gone without Holy Communion for months; to help us reawaken love for Jesus in the Eucharist, our summer book this year, by noted spiritual writer Henri Nouwen, is With Burning Hearts
, which can be purchased online wherever you normally get your books. Want Emmanuel to place an order for you? Please let Mary know by Friday, June 18th.
We will not designate one Sunday for an in-person United Thank Offering this year, but if you are grateful and would like to express that by participating in the UTO process, you may give anytime this summer via your Breeze app or on our website
or by mailing a check to the church. However you give, be sure to indicate UTO in the memo line or comment field!
NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR THE 12TH BISHOP
The Election Committee for the Twelfth Bishop is pleased to announce that the Diocesan Profile
is now available, and the Nomination and Application
processes are open for use. The Episcopal Diocese of Springfield now invites qualified candidates to discern whether God may be calling them to serve the church of Jesus Christ as the 12th Bishop of Springfield. The Diocese also invites all its members to dedicate time in prayer with the intention that God will send us a faithful and effective Bishop. Emmanuel invites you in particular to thank our parishioner Bill Techau, who served on the Profile Committee.
