Join in worship at St. Christopher's on All Saints' Day (1 Nov 2021 at 7:00pm). In the context of the Eucharistic liturgy we will remember by name those family members/very close friends in our lives who have died in Christ and also those saints we have commemorated this year. If you would like to add a name(s) to our list of saints, please send them in an email to email@example.com.
We are thankful to those who serve animals in need at the Wayne County Dog Shelter and the Wayne County Humane Society. On Sunday, 3 October 2021, a day before the commemoration of St. Francis of Assisi, St. Christopher's collected donations for these organizations at our Blessing of the Animals. We offer prayers for those who serve these animals, and also that these dogs and cats are given good and loving homes.
RSVP for the luncheon by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
