Holy Week begins next Sunday with the celebration of Passion Sunday/Palm Sunday. Make time in your schedule for each day’s opportunities for prayer and worship. Participation in the sweep of Holy Week will deepen your experience of Easter Day’s proclamation of new life offered to all through the Risen Christ.
The Rev. Canon Daniel G. P. Gutierrez was elected on March 12 to be the new bishop of the Diocese of Pennsylvania. After confirmation by a majority of the House of Bishops of The Episcopal Church, and by a majority of the diocesan standing committees of the Church, Canon Gutierrez will be consecrated on July 16, 2016. Our current bishop, The Rt. Rev. Clifton Daniel, 3rd, will continue to serve until the consecration in July.
