THE ASCENSION

OF OUR LORD

This great feast of the Easter Season, the Ascension of Our Lord, follows Easter by 40 days.  On Thursday, May 5th, the Holy Eucharist will be celebrated at 11:45 am in the chapel.  Study Luke 24:50:     

 Then he led them out as far as Bethany, and, lifting up his hands,

he blessed them.  While he was blessing them, he withdrew from them and was carried up into heaven.

 

THE DAY OF PENTECOST

On Sunday, May 15th at the 10:30 am Holy Eucharist, we will celebrate Pentecost.  This day celebrates the "outpouring of the Spirit" and the birth of the Church, according to the chronology and theology of the book of Acts of the Apostles.     

 

THE HOLY TRINITY

On Sunday, May 22nd we will honor the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.  On this day we will confess that our God is named Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  This is Christ's command in Matthew 28:19 when he says to us: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."  It is this name that our faith requires us to adore for God is in this name!

 

THE HOLY VISITATION

Holy Eucharist will be celebrated on the Feast of the Holy Visitation, Tuesday, May 31st, in the chapel at 11:45 am. 

    On this holy day we give thanks to God for the blessed words between Saint Mary and Saint Elizabeth.  We also give thanks for the honor paid Saint Mary by the still unborn Saint John the Baptist, when he moved in the womb of his mother, Saint Elizabeth. 

    To prepare for this festival, study Luke 1:39-47 and Isaiah 11:1-5.
