10 Confirmands were confirmed by Bishop Jay Lambert on Mother's Day. 9 teenagers and one adult became the largest Confirmation group in more than decade.
One teen was both baptized and confirmed on the same day. Her younger sister was also baptized on Mother's Day.
A few weeks later 2 other young adults were baptized.
We are blessed with teens who are firm in their faith and reach out as a team to help our greater La Crosse and International community.

Monday Afternoon Bridge
Most Monday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. a group assembles in the undercroft of the church to enjoy two hours of casual, friendly bridge. We are retired people who enjoy fellowship and camaraderie. This bridge session is social rather than extremely competitive. No partner is needed to join the fun. If it should happen that we don’t have the right number of players, we take turns playing and kibitzing. People from several different churches join in the fun and contribute a free will offering in gratitude to the church for its generous hospitality. Our church treasurer, Bob Weathers, reports that as of May 25 the group has contributed $258 to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund.
If you or someone you know have Monday afternoons free, like to play bridge, and enjoy pleasant companionship, you are invited to join us.
For more information talk to Vivian Andresen, Nancy Gansen, Grace and Peter Hammond, Barbara Trane, or George and Cindy Waltershausen.

Fellowship Potluck on
Father Patrick was awarded the prestigious silver cross of St. Augustine
in church at the 10:30 service Rose Sunday. Diocese of Eau Claire Bishop
Ed Leidel presented Father Patrick with the award on behalf of
the Archbishop of Canterbury (Rowan) who bestowed the award in absentia.
Archbishop Rowan is retiring, and was unable to travel from London to La
Crosse to present the award personally. He asked Bishop Ed to present it
on his behalf with best wishes. The award was given to Father Patrick
for his evangelism and outreach, particularly seeking and
serving Christians who live in poverty and persecution in the far flung
corners of the world. This culminates an active life long career of
Father Patrick who consistently seeks and serves those in need locally
