The First Sunday in Lent – Fr. Andy Powell

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the Spirit. +In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Good morning, everyone! A blessed Lent to all of you! Last Wednesday we began our Lenten journey with Jesus to Jerusalem, then to

First Sunday after Christmas

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God John 1:1 Today is the seventh day of the Twelve Day Feast of Christmas. On Wednesday the 27th, was the feast of our Patron Saint John the Divine. On that day 32 years ago I was ordained a Deacon by Bp. Clarence C Pope, of blessed memory. The Gospel according to John is

Christmas Eve

Something extraordinary happened on Dec 2, 2020. The Great Conjunction. Did you see it? What in the world am I talking about? On Dec. 21, Saturn and Jupiter were aligned with earth within 0.1 degrees of separation. To the naked eye they appeared as one very bright star. This has renewed interest in the theory of the Star of Bethlehem. Was there really a star in the East that led

Fourth Sunday in Advent

The Annunciation Sunday 26 In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed[a] to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. Today is the 4th Sunday of Advent, and our Gospel text today is about what we call the Annunciation. Gabriel made the announcement of the LORD to Mary that she would conceive

Third Sunday in Advent

This is the Third Sunday in Advent which is sometimes called Gaudete Sunday. The name means Rejoice, and it comes from the words of Philippians 4 that says, “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.” The lesson from Isaiah carries the theme as well: I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; Advent is traditionally a period of fasting for the preparation of the coming of

Second Sunday in Advent

“The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” From the Gospel according to St. Mark 1:1. If you ever watch any detective shows at home, you may have heard this question and answer. Question: “Where should I start?” Answer: “Why don’t you start at the beginning?” The Gospel according to St. Mark starts at the beginning. It is reminiscent of the opening words of the Book

First Sunday in Advent

Jesus said, “And what I say to you I say to all: Watch.” from the Gospel according to St. Mark. (13:24-37) Happy New Year! Too early you say? Maybe for your iPhone’s calendar, but not for the Church Year. This is the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of our Church Calendar year. The liturgical color has changed to Purple, and if you read some of the info out there

Christ the King Sunday

Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus said, “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory.” … from the Gospel according to St. Matthew. This the last Sunday of our Church year, and it is Christ the King Sunday. We heard in the Gospel today that Jesus, the Son of Man, one day will come and sit

The Twenty-First Sunday After Pentecost

Matthew 22:15-22 Jesus said, “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” In our Gospel reading today, there was some controversy over some of the teaching of Jesus. The Pharisees were trying to trap him saying something that would get him in hot water. His plan is working. His answer is simple; “Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,

Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost

For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:1-14 This is a ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ parable, which is the sort that Jesus told when he wanted to make a very important point about life and death. If you have an interest in the afterlife, it’s important to take note. Jesus told many parables that involved the marriage customs of his day. This was something that was familiar to his

      Also known as "way of the cross" or "via crucis" this devotion consists of 14 stations, taken both from Scripture and tradition, since the 18th century when the Church officially approved the now common Lenten practice. Through the stations, we are able to spiritually journey to the via dolorosa (Latin for "way of sorrows" or "way of suffering"). Beginning with Christ's condemnation all the way to his body being laid in the tomb, each "station" allows us to pray and reflect in prayer. Afterwards we meet in the Parish Hall for a Lenten study and meal.
