Fr. David Lynch _ FIRST WEEK OF EASTER 2017
A message from Fr. David 

Holy Week and Easter was moving, meaningful and inspiring.  I have had several comments from various parishioners concerning their experiences.  Many told me of their feelings of experiencing God's presence and of tears and great joy.  I want to extend a large THANK YOU to the many Volunteers, Altar Guild, Ushers, Acolytes, Eucharistic Ministers, Readers and everyone who helped create in the words of one person "the best Easter they had ever experienced."  It is a great privilege and honor to serve a parish that supports and appreciates our efforts to feed your souls!  Thank you!  Resurrection Episcopal Church is a special place that takes its liturgical life seriously.

The last session of our Lenten/Easter Adult Forum will be tomorrow between services in the undercroft.  Be with us for "Embracing an Adult Faith" with Marcus Borg.

Author and Bible scholar Marcus Borg invites us to join him in revisiting Christianity's most fundamental questions: Who is God? What does salvation mean? What place does Jesus hold in contemporary Christian faith?
