Organ Recitals

7:00 pm – 8:30 pm, Saint Thomas Church
Much anticipated, and as a result of over ten years of visionary planning and painstaking hard work on the part of many, The Irene D. and William R. Miller Chancel Organ in memory of John Scott has gradually taken shape visually and aurally over the past year. With 102 stops, this magisterial instrument now presides over both sides of the Chancel, and is designed for liturgical and concert use. In this dedicatory recital, Daniel Hyde will demonstrate the many colors and sounds of the new instrument, from the softest strings to the iconic ‘blazing Saint Thomas sound’ known to many familiar with the previous instrument. An occasion not to be missed.

THE FEAST OF DEDICATION

On the Feast of Dedication, we rededicate ourselves to Christ and our mission as a parish. The Feast of Dedication also serves as the launch for the 2018 Annual Appeal. We encourage you to pledge for 2018 during the months of October and November in 2017. Please consider participating in this year's appeal. No matter where you live around the globe, if you enjoy worshiping with us via the webcasts, we would appreciate your contribution.

Collect:

SAINT SIMON AND SAINT JUDE

We don’t know very much about Saints Simon and Jude the Apostles.

This Saint Simon is not Peter but “Simon the Canaanite” or “Simon the Zealot.” That means this apostle was, before he followed Jesus, probably a Jewish nationalist revolutionary against the authority of Rome.

Jude, who also was called Lebbaeus and surnamed Thaddeus, is mentioned in Saint John’s Gospel as a brother of Saint James the Greater (brother also of John and son of Zebedee), and therefore is also a family member of Christ himself. The New Testament Epistle of Jude is traditionally ascribed to this Jude. For many centuries, Saint Jude Thaddeus has been regarded in popular devotion as the “patron saint of desperate or lost causes,” but the basis of this tradition is obscure.

Saints Simon and Jude are linked together as apostles to Persia (Iran) and martyrs there. The churches they founded, in spite of centuries of persecution, still exist.

Collect:

O God, we thank thee for the glorious company of the apostles, and especially on this day for Simon and Jude; and we pray that, as they were faithful and zealous in their mission, so we may with ardent devotion make known the love and mercy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
