 Announcements

Mark your calendars and plan to join us at the 9:30 a.m. celebration of the Eucharist on June 4th for Pentecost. We will have an augmented choir for a splendid choral performance.

 

When many are asked about Christian holidays, the think of Christmas and Easter. But Pentecost really eclipses Christmas. On Pentecost we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on us, the Church. We celebrate that we are the Body of Christ in the world. Everyone is encouraged to wear Red, for we live in the power of the Spirit.

 

At the conclusion of the service we will process out of the Church with the Paschal Candle. At the Easter Vigil we carried the Paschal Candle - the Light of Christ - into a dark church, enabling us to see how the Light of Christ splits the darkness. Now, on Pentecost, we will carry the Light of Christ out of the church and into the world. Once outside we will light a fire in a pit and make s'mores, enjoying the fact that we are children of God.

 

Join us for we are created out of love, in love, for love.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Mark Andrew+

The Rev. Mark Andrew Jones, BSG

Rector, St. Nicholas Episcopal Church
