Where Is Our Place? — a forty minute documentary film by the Rev. Chris Bishop, rector of Saint Martin’s Church, Radnor, will be screened here, at the Church of Saint Luke & The Epiphany on Thursday evening, May 12, at 7 p.m. Chris has made several trips to the Middle East to examine the existential threat to the historic Christian communities in the region. He will be with us to answer questions and to facilitate a brief discussion.
For more information see the Stand with Iraqi Christians website.
On Sunday, May 1, and Sunday, May 8, the seminarians will host a discussion at 10 a.m. in the Blue Room Lounge about how the Church of Saint Luke & The Epiphany might better engage the surrounding community. One of the core ideas coming out of the Future Church conversations during Lent was that churches tend to grow as they connect with their neighbors. (The Bible Study group will not meet on May 1 or 8.)
For the first meeting wear a pair of walking shoes. We’ll be going on a brief field trip. Plan to join us.
On Wednesday, April 13, seniors 62 years and over are warmly invited to come together from noon to 2 p.m. at the church. We’ll buy pizza. No “death and dying” stuff . . . just “living and being.” If you have any questions or thoughts, speak to Neale Secor, Betsy Williams, or John Simpson for more information. Their contact information is in the church directory, copies of which are available in the narthex.
Our observance of the Easter Triduum, the three-day period recalling the passion, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, began this evening with the Maundy Thursday liturgy. It continues through tomorrow’s Good Friday liturgy at 12:30 p.m., and a special service of Prayer around the Cross at 7:00 p.m. On the evening of Holy Saturday, at 8:00 p.m., we observe the Great Vigil of Easter. Finally on Easter Day, we will have two celebrations of the Holy Eucharist at 9 and 11 a.m., followed by a reception.
