What to expect when you visit

10015The source and summit of our lives as Episcopalians is Holy Communion.  The Holy Eucharist is called “The Lord’s Supper, and Holy Communion; it is also known as the Divine Liturgy, the Mass, and the Great Offering (BCP, page 859).”  “Our Savior Christ, on the night before He suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood as a sign and pledge of His love, for the continual remembrance of the sacrifice of His death, and for a spiritual sharing in His risen life. For in these Holy Mysteries, we are made one with Christ, and Christ with us; we are made one body in Him, and members one of another (Exhortation, BCP, page 316).”   When you come for Worship on Sunday mornings, we hope that you have an encounter with the Risen Lord in the Holy Eucharist.  In this domain, the importance is not what we do, but what God does.  No human work can ever accomplish what we find at the heart of our Eucharistic Celebration: the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
