December Worship

We start a new church year by observing Advent, a season of waiting and preparation. This is not only a way of remembering the world's waiting for Jesus' historical birth, but also out waiting and preparation for his coming again.

This Advent we're blessed to have two services of Holy Eucharist, on December 2 and 9. The Rev. Judith Toffey will officiate on December 2, and the Rev. James Spear on December 9.
