Parish Email for Friday, 1 March 2024


Are you looking to step up your walk with Jesus? In the Episcopal Church, we have inherited a peculiarly Anglican way of practicing Christianity. Come join those preparing for Confirmation on Wednesday nights every other week from 6.30-7.30pm in the Parish Hall, beginning 21 February for eight weeks. All participants are encouraged to purchase James Griffiss, _The Anglican Vision_: each week we will discuss a chapter from that book.  Come early (6pm) and bring your own dinner to share a meal together. Come earlier (5.30pm) to enjoy a mid-week Eucharist, especially during Lent! You don’t have to be preparing for Confirmation in order to participate.

Learn from our current Presiding Bishop’s philosophy of life this Lenten season by joining Adult Formation as we read Love is the Way: Holding on to Hope in Troubling Times by Bishop Michael Curry. See how you can make an intentional commitment to be part of the Jesus Movement in the Episcopal Church. This book study, led by Rachael O. will begin on March 4th in the Parish Hall at 9 AM and will continue until March 24th (with no class being held on March 17th). If you are interested in participating in the book study, please purchase Love is the Way at a bookseller near you or borrow this title from your local library. If you have any questions, please speak to Rachael O. at
