Parents’ Night Out is a ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Cross to give moms, dads, and all caregivers an evening away, knowing that their children are well cared for.
               We’ll feed the kids supper; play some games; do some crafts; have a lesson; and there will be some guest presenters to make the evening special.
               Doors will open at 5:00 PM, and supper will be at 5:30 PM.
               In order to ensure that we have the proper level of care for the children, we are asking one another to register our children for these gatherings.  Please look to future Daily Cross emails for registration material.
               A second Parents’ Night Out is scheduled for Friday, July 19th.

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity:  Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.
               -The Collect for Trinity Sunday
Loving God, we remember before you this Memorial Day weekend the men and women who have given their lives in service to this nation.  Gather them to your heavenly banquet table; and may their souls, and the souls of all the departed, rest in peace.  Comfort, we pray, those who grieve, and send upon them your Spirit of Consolation.  Inspire us to live into the highest ideals of this land.  And bring, we pray, peace to our nation and all the nations.  In your Holy Name we pray.  Amen.
               -A Prayer for Memorial Day
Heavenly Father, in you we live and move and have our being:  We humbly pray you so to guide and govern us by your Holy Spirit, that in all the cares and occupations of our life we may not forget you, but may remember that we are ever walking in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
               -A Prayer for Guidance
O God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace.  Let the design of your great love shine upon all humanity; and grant us your peace among the nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts.  Amen.
               -A Prayer for Peace from the New Zealand Book of Common Prayer
