Feast of the Holy Communion June 3

Our church’s name comes from our practice, week in and week out, of celebrating Christ’s presence with us in Eucharist. In the Episcopal Church we speak about Jesus being “really present” in the sacrament. We also recall that coming to Christ’s table is meant to feed us for the journey, to sustain us in Christ’s ongoing work.

This year, on June 3, during the 10:30am service we will celebrate the Feast of the Holy Communion (what our Catholic siblings call the Feast of “Corpus Christi.”) We’ll begin our service on Vanderbilt Ave, and process around Mooney Park with bagpipes. We’ll give thanks for our life together as a congregation, for our mission, vision and goals, and we’ll celebrate Eucharist.

After the service, we’ll head back to Mooney Park to continue the celebration, with a picnic lunch in the park and games for all ages. Join us as we celebrate our life together.
