Solemn Eucharist of the Resurrection

Add to My Calendar

Sunday, April 21, 2019
8:00 am High Altar



Almighty God, who through thine only-begotten Son Jesus Christ hast overcome death and opened unto us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by thy life-giving Spirit; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit ever, one God, world without end. Amen.

We would be delighted if you decide to worship with us on Easter Morning. Everyone is invited! Easter is the reason for our existence; there would be no church, no Christian faith, and no hope without the resurrection.
