Collecting the Sacrament of Holy Communion During the Pandemic
Parishioners may collect Holy Communion for at-home distribution from the Main Campus porte cochére by prior arrangement. The bread for this purpose will be consecrated at the Sunday morning services and should be administered that afternoon. A special form of prayer for this purpose will be included in each packet. Taking Communion to those prevented from attending worship has been a tradition since the earliest days of the Church, so we are glad to be able to reinstate this practice temporarily during this pandemic.
  1. Register before 12 noon on Friday. Late registrations cannot be accommodated.
  2. Registrants will receive an email on Saturday regarding the specific pick-up time.
  3. The pick-up window will be from 2 to 3 pm on Sunday at the Welcome Center porte cochére at the Main Campus with specific pick-up times assigned alphabetically.

Choral Evensong for the Feast of Pentecost
Sunday, May 31 from 5 to 5:45 pm

If you are already a regular at Choral Evensong, you will not want to miss this special webcast; and if you've never been before, give it a try. We think you will find it to be a deeply meaningful form of worship. Join us online for Choral Evensong to celebrate the feast of Pentecost. Consisting of a pattern of prayers, readings, and music, Evensong is a beautiful and beloved sung form of the Daily Office, and lasts less than 45 minutes. It is a particularly Anglican form of worship, and its liturgy is virtually unchanged since it appeared in the first Book of Common Prayer in 1549. The choir will sing festive music by Gerre Hancock, George Dyson, and Edward Elgar.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
Why bother with the Creeds? Why do we have them in our Worship services? What’s wrong with just believing in the Bible? Do the creeds add something to the Bible? These and many more questions will be answered this Sunday as we continue our Sunday School Class on the Catechism. We will look at the next section in the Catechism which are the Creeds. It is an unusually short section, but it begs many questions that we will answer! Tune in on Facebook at 10:20 am!

The Impact of Your Generosity
We may have momentarily stepped out of the building to worship – but we continue to witness how fast and how far the Gospel can spread no matter the circumstances. Together, we will honor and glorify God by worshipping him, growing in our relationship with him, and caring for those who suffer in mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for making that possible. Thank you for your generosity.
