O God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

This Sunday we welcome The Reverend Deacon Barbara Coleman as our preacher and officiant.

May Fair, a Celebration of our 300th Anniversary
from the 300th Anniversary Committee
Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!
Let it be known that Wye Parish is immensely grateful to Rick Culotta, Tom Radcliffe and MaryJo DeMattais for leading the May Fair team to an undoubtedly successful event. They were supported by Karen Culotta, head baker of the top earning Bake Shoppe, selling sweets of the 18th century; Debbie Scott who headed the kitchen crew, Jeff Denton who created our May Pole; and Bibi Schelberg who led the frolicking dance. We are especially grateful to Rev. Mary Garner who made possible the Blessing of the Animals.
Wye Parish also thanks the many volunteers whose gifts of time and talents made the event possible.
(Thank you to Rhonda Corder posted this photo of the horse carriage and driver on Facebook.)
