News & Announcements

Transfiguration of the LordSunday, February 26 | UNIFIED SERVICE at 8:30 a.m.: Each liturgical year the church observes the story of the transfiguration of Jesus.  Reported in all three synoptic gospels, few of us are familiar with the day when Jesus’ physical appearance was thoroughly changed before the amazed eyes of Peter, James and John.  There is a very good reason for this: it always falls on the Sunday before Mardi Gras! The Transfiguration has much to say about the intimacy of God the Father with God the Son – just as with his baptism, the words, “this is my Son” are uttered from on high.  But it also speaks to Jesus’ unique authority to carry out the will of the Father. The 40 days of Lent, of course, follow closely, as if to say that before we set out, we are going to need both the same closeness of the God who is with us, as well as continual assurance of the sovereign One who is over us.

The Ash Wednesday Service will take place March 1 at Noon in the Chapel. Sarah Chancellor-Watson will officiate, and all are encouraged to attend this important introduction to the Lenten season.

The 16th Annual Men’s Retreat will be Friday, March 10 – Saturday, March 11 in Pass Christian, Mississippi. For further details, registration and study resources, please click here.
