Father's Day Prayer
God our Father
Bless these men that they might find strength as father's.
Let the example of their faith and love shine forth.
Grant that we, their sons and daughters,
may honor them always with a spirit of profound respect. Amen!
An Invitation from Bishop Franklin
Bishop Franklin has invited everyone in the diocese to read the book Unabashedly Episcopalian by Bishop Andrew Doyle this fall. The Bishop's hope is that Bishop Doyle's words will help spark energy, creativity and new ideas as our diocese works to impact the 21st century.
The book is $10 and can be ordered individually or in bulk for delivery to churches near Labor Day. Full payment must accompany each order. Click here for the Diocesan Website and to learn of other active ministries taking place in your episcopal diocese.
Police Week Interfaith Memorial Service
National Police Week is always the week in which May 15th falls. The Interfaith
Memorial Service is held in honor of area law enforcement officers who have
died in the line of duty over the years.
Law enforcement officers from area agencies gather for the service to honor their
fallen colleagues and support their survivors.
We consider it an honor to hold this service at our church.
