Solemn Eucharist of the Resurrection

Add to My Calendar

Sunday, April 21, 2019
11:00 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.

Today's sermon is part of a series by Bishop Chartres entitled ‘Humanity brought to life by the humanity of God’

“Is it not evident that the Father accepts the sacrifice not because he demands it or feels some need of it but in order to carry out his own plans? Humanity had to be brought to life by the humanity of God ...we had to be called back to him by his Son. Let the rest be adored in silence.” Saint Gregory Nazianzen - Orations for Easter (45)
