Forty days after Easter is Ascension Day, which is truly the celebration of Christ the King. On this day we celebrate the bodily resurrected Jesus bodily ascending to heaven to sit and rule at the right hand of the Father. Because of his ascension, Jesus is our Advocate, he has brought our flesh into the presence of God the Father, and he sends his Spirit to us, his church, to carry on the work of bringing the kingdom of God here on earth as it is in heaven.
Thursday, March 25 - 7:00pm
Pour your grace into our hearts, O Lord, that we who have known the incarnation of your Son Jesus Christ, announced by an angel to the Virgin Mary, may by his Cross and passion be brought to the glory of his resurrection; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
At the feast of the Annunciation the church celebrates the angel Gabriel visiting the Blessed Virgin Mary with the announcement that she would conceive and bear a son who would be named Jesus. Mary's openness and obedience to the will of God made way for the Incarnation (God becoming human flesh in the person of Jesus), and thus she is the God-bearer, or Blessed Theotokos, for because Jesus assumed human flesh, we can be saved by his most "blessed passion and precious death, his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension, and his promise to come again" (2019 BCP, 117).
Come and pray the Lenten devotion of the Stations of the Cross at St. Christopher's. Encounter the Lord Jesus in his Passion and Death, and spiritually see from the perspectives of Christ, his Blessed Mother, nearby disciples, and those bystanders looking on as this event unfolded.
Following the Holy Eucharist this Sunday, 24 January 2021, St. Christopher's will hold our annual Congregational Outlook Meeting.
Come celebrate Christmas with St. Christopher's in-person or online via Facebook Live (8:00pm Christmas Eve and 10:00am Christmas Day only).
St. Christopher's offers The Holy Eucharist on Wednesdays at 12:10pm, at 445 N Bever St, Wooster.
Our mid-week Eucharist serves to observe the church calendar. On each Wednesday, we celebrate and/or commemorate a prominent Holy Day or feast of a saint that falls on a day of that week.
All are welcome to join, and this non-Sunday time of worship on Wednesdays is especially an opportunity for folks who do not feel comfortable being in a larger gathering to worship in a smaller-group setting.
Join us for a series of conversations about Paul's Letter to the Philippians.
