Thursday nights (through October 25th) will bring a special five-week series in honor of the 350 year anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, “Our Anglican Heritage: The English and American BCP.” Each week we will explore the continuing history of the BCP tradition and how they have affected our sacramental life today. Our guest lecturer will be The Rev. Dr. Sean M. Wallace, a priest in the New York Diocese with graduate degrees in both Church and Music History and an avid BCP collector. Classes will be held in the Parish Hall from 7pm to 8pm.

We'd like to hear from you!
From our Pulpitby The Rev. Elizabeth G. Maxwell
O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity: Grant us the fullness of your grace, that we, running to obtain your promises, may become partakers of your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
