Every Friday morning, we gather at 7:30am for a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, Rite II. This liturgy focuses on the lives of the Saints, hearing their stories, letting their faithfulness to Christ witness to us.
Join us for the special service, held in the St. Athanasius Chapel.
A holy person, a faithful Christian, one who shares life in Christ. The term may also indicate one who has been formally canonized or recognized as a saint by church authority. In the NT, the term is applied to all faithful Christians (see Acts 9:32, 26:10). Paul addresses the saints or those called to be saints who are the members of Christian communities that receive his letters (see Rom 1:7, 1 Cor 1:2, 2 Cor 1:1, Eph 1:1, Phil 1:1, Col 1:2). Christ makes it possible for us to be saints as we share his life. We are washed, sanctified, and justified “in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor 6:11). – From An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church
