Almighty and most merciful God, we remember before you all poor and neglected persons whom it would be easy for us to forget: the homeless and the destitute, the old and the sick, and all who have none to care for them. Help us to heal those who are broken in body or spirit, and to turn their sorrow into joy. Grant this, Father, for the love of your Son, who for our sake became poor, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We welcome all to our 10:30 service each Sunday.  Please continue to mask and sit in the open rows. We offer (wafer only) Eucharist. We look forward to continued loosening of these restrictions as concerns about the pandemic lessen.

ONLINE WORSHIP ON SUNDAYS AT 9:00 A.M.

    

New Format for Partnership Worship 

Since March 2020, hundreds of people across the partnership have gathered for online worship on Sunday mornings. Originally, the partnership planned to offer this service only until congregations could once again gather in their buildings. But a community has formed, and there is interest in continuing to gather online.

 

Beginning May 30 and continuing at least through the summer, a new half-hour worship service will be offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. The format will be a Zoom Meeting, which means participants can choose to have their cameras and microphones on to see and speak with one another. Preachers and worship leaders will be chosen from across the partnership. Once a month, the service will focus on prayers for reconciliation and healing.

 

Email Gabrie'l Atchison gatchison@episcopalwny.org to receive a weekly email reminder with the Zoom link and readings.
