Recent Worship

Since September of 2019, we’ve been capturing elements of worship on video, and posting them on YouTube. In these ever-changing times, it seems fitting that we’ve changed our video ministry as well. Check here for recent sermons and services, including transcripts of the sermons.

Liturgy of the Palms – Sunday, April 5th

Today we are in our homes. We are asked to find whatever we can around us and, more importantly, within us to show our hope in the resurrection. As we say in the Creed’s most powerful words: We look for the resurrection of the dead. That is what we do.

Our challenge in this time of physical separation is to answer these questions:

What gestures, what artifacts, what items, what actions can each of us conjure up that would point to our looking for the resurrection of the dead, trusting in the resurrection, putting our hearts in the hope of the resurrection?

Liturgy of the Word – Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

Jesus healed the Blind Man, and our Lord is healing us, even now.  Our Lord is taking us even by the hand through deep and dark valleys in which we do not want to find ourselves. But just like our Lord, just like his communities, just like our own parish, we have been through hard things  before and together we will go through them again, through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
