This feast day has been transferred from November 1st.​​​​

CURRENT NEWS

Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your Name; increase in us true religion; nourish us with all goodness; and bring forth in us the fruit of good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen. This is the collect for Proper 17 for Sunday, August 21. I especially love the petition to “increase in us true religion.” That may be essentially the work of our lives as Christians. Read more

Thanksgiving Day Holy Eucharist
Thursday, November 24, 10am, Nave & Zoom

​​This will be a special service of Holy Eucharist in honor of Thanksgiving. The word "Eucharist" comes from the Greek word εὐχαριστία, (translit. eucharistía), meaning "Thanksgiving." One of the things that we do each time we celebrate the Eucharist is partake in this supreme act of gratitude to God, just as Jesus gave thanks when he broke bread with his disciples.​​

Instructed Eucharist
Sunday, October 2, 10am, Nave & Zoom

During this service we will be stopping occasionally to explain the significance of various aspects of our liturgy. This is a great opportunity to learn why we do what we do in worship (or to have a little refresher).​​

Blessing of Animals
Monday, October 3 at 6pm, outside on the church grounds

 We invite anyone to bring their pets or photos of their pets for a pet blessing at the church in honor of the feast of St. Francis.​​​​
