A Message From Fr. Barrett
Dear Parish Family,
For this First Sunday of Advent, we focus on HOPE. The Gospel lesson starts us off with the spirituality of the Apocalypse and being prepared and awake for Christ’s Second Coming. What does that actually mean to us today? Jesus made it clear to all for us to keep awake, stay alert, watch and pray. Come this Sunday and start the New Church Year off right with this penitential season; to get us on the right track for what is ahead for our sacred lives on this earthly pilgrimage
Bible Study Tuesday Evening
The Bible Study meets on the first 3 Tuesday evenings of the month at 6:30 PM continuing on Tuesday November 3rd. The Zoom invitation’s link is available to you by just double-clicking the button below to connect right into the Bible Study. Come and join us, as we learn about Stewardship.
Everyone is welcome!!
The Way Of Love, Walk in Love, and Everything you wanted to Know
Thursday Evenings Study, 6:30 p.m. via ZOOM or Sunday afternoon Study, 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
We now are returning to the course called: Everything You Wanted to Know About Being an Episcopalian and were Afraid to Ask. We are continuing to use a textbook called The Way of Love, yet it is not required for all those participating. One should only need a prayer book.
We will be diving into a greater understanding of our Church that includes everything from our history to our worship, to our Sacraments and theology.
This class also will meet the requirements for the Catechumenate who desire to be baptized, confirmed and re-affirmed in the Episcopal Church. For additional information, please contact Fr. Barrett at email@example.com.
