The Feast of the Ascension: Thursday, May 13 at 6pm

The feast of the Ascension, our "name day," is traditionally celebrated 40 days after Easter Sunday. (Which means we always know it will be a Thursday!) This year, as last, we'll be celebrating online, via Zoom. Please join us at 6pm on May 13 for the readings, hymns, anthem and sermon marking this special day for our parish and the Christian faith.

The Gift

Be still, my soul, and steadfast.
Earth and heaven both are still watching
though time is draining from the clock
and your walk, that was confident and quick,
has become slow.
 
So, be slow if you must, but let
the heart still play its true part.
Love still as once you loved, deeply
and without patience. Let God and the world
know you are grateful.
That the gift has been given.
