This class is preparation for Confirmation, but everyone is welcome and no one has to undergo Confirmation.

Dates: Beginning Sunday, Feb. 16, following the 10 a.m. service, meeting in the Adult Education room, through Sunday, April 29 (no class on Easter). On May 2, we will have a retreat day together. On May 3, Bishop Samuel Azariah will be at St. Paul's for a visitation, and baptize, confirm, receive, or reaffirm those we present. 
 
So that adequate materials will be provided, please let Pastor Kay know that you plan to attend via email: kay@stpauls.org.

WORK DAYS BEGINNING SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8 at 9:00 a.m.
The Building & Grounds Committee is seeking volunteers to work on Saturday mornings beginning February 8th and continuing through the month to help complete repairs to the storage units and other related tasks.  No one need volunteer for every Saturday in the month as one or two days of the "energetic" would be of the most utility.  Please contact Dennis MacDonell, 949-748-9081, if you would like to volunteer.

PRAYER
 
Gracious God,
Thank you for the gift of today.
Refresh me. Invite me to discover your presence
In each person that I meet
And every event that I encounter.
Teach me when to speak and when to listen
When to ponder and when to share.
In moments of challenge and decision
Attune my heart to the whisperings of your Wisdom.
As I undertake ordinary and unnoticed tasks,
Gift me with simple joy.
When my day goes well, may I rejoice.
When it grows difficult, surprise me with
New possibilities.
When life is overwhelming, call me to
Sabbath moments
To restore your Peace and Harmony.
May my living today reveal your Goodness.
                    - Pat Bergen, C.S.J
