Brocante/Flea Market in Dorlisheim 9 June.

Anny Samuels et Pauline Dif écrirent:

Nous voudrions vous remercier du fond du cœur pour l’aide précieuse que beaucoup d’entre vous a apporté ces derniers jours, et particulièrement dimanche, pour organiser la brocante, tenir les stands et remballer les invendus.

Un grand merci à Diane pour son chaleureux accueil (et pour son hébergement), cela nous a considérablement facilité la tâche. Et à Victoria pour son délicieux biryani.

Pour votre information, la brocante a rapporté un peu plus de 500 € à l’ACAS et 175 € à l’église, qu’elle utilisera pour financer en partie les travaux de réfection de l’appartement de Nick Rivier. Le jeu en valait la chandelle !

We would like to say a heartfelt thank-you for the invaluable help that many of you gave in the past few days, especially on Sunday, to organize the flea market, man/woman the stands and repack the unsold goods.

A big thank you to Diane for her warm welcome (and for her accommodation), it made life much easier for us. And to Victoria for her delicious biryani.

For your information, the flea market raised a little over 500 € for the ACAS and 175 € for the Church, which we will use to finance part of the repair work on Nick Rivier’s apartment. The game was worth the candle, as we say in French!

Cordialement/Best regards

Ascension Day 30 May

The Sunday School Sleepover has been postponed to another time – Everyone seems to be traveling!!

However, there will be an Ascension celebration & champagne brunch for all at the Chaplaincy flat

(12 ave. de la Forêt Noire) this Thursday 30 May at 10h30.

This will also be a good occasion to come and welcome Philip Zoutendam, who joins St Alban’s Ministry Team for the months of June and July.

Philip comes to us from Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC (USA).

The Feast of the Ascension celebrates the ascent of Jesus to God the Father. After his death and resurrection, he leaves his disciples while still continuing to be with them… but differently. He promises to send them the Holy Spirit to be with them forever.

The Ascension, coming forty days after Easter Sunday, marks Christ’s entry into the glory of God and is a major feast of the Church. It is viewed as an extension of Easter and the announcement of Pentecost ten days later.

La fête de l’Ascension célèbre la montée de Jésus vers Dieu son Père. Mort et ressuscité, il quitte ses disciples tout en continuant d’être présent auprès d’eux… mais différemment. Il promet de leur envoyer l’Esprit-Saint qui serait avec eux pour toujours.

La fête de l’Ascension, tombant quarante jours après Pâques, marque l’entrée du Christ dans la gloire de Dieu. Elle est une des principales fêtes de l’Eglise. C’est le prolongement de Pâques et annonce la Pentecôte, dix jours plus tard.
