A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

If you were with us on Sunday morning then you know that the Zoom Video Conferencing platform was down, and we were not able to worship together. Accordingly, we've rescheduled our Sunday Eucharistic Service for this evening, Wednesday May 20th at 6:30 p.m. We will use the same liturgy and Zoom link, and you can find those by clicking here. If you do not have consecrated bread and would like to join us, please let me know, since I will be up at the church this afternoon. You are most welcome to drop by and pick up bread.

You may be interested to know that the Mission Council will meet on Thursday via Zoom to begin discussing what it might look like when we begin gathering physically once again. We will wait for approval from our bishop, but when that approval comes, we want to be ready. Stay tuned, since we will keep you posted as that conversation progresses.

Our schedule for bread distribution this week will continue as it has for the past few weeks, so please know that the church doors will be open at the following dates and times:
  1. Wednesday from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
  2. Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  3. Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to noon
Finally, this coming Sunday we celebrate the Ascension of Christ, which means we are nearing the end of the Easter Season. I've created a short video, which you will find below, exploring the meaning and significance of Jesus' Ascension into heaven. I look forward to seeing you all soon!
Grace & Peace,
