In the Northern Hemisphere, the 8 days between the Confession of St. Peter (18 Jan) and the Conversion of St. Paul (25 Jan) is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the week between Ascension Day and Pentecost. If ever we needed Prayer, for unity it is now.
This has been quite a day. Here is the link to their video.

Hi! It’s been a while. My apologies for the lag. We are back, carefully, to in person worship. It has been wonderful! We all continue to pray for each other, our Country, and our World. I/we pray not only for healing from this pandemic, but for peace, Special prayers for those suffering from COVID-19 and other illnesses or needs. Most importantly, for our Canon Missioner, Rev. Gina. We miss you. Blessings as she continues to recover.

Yeee – haaa! Our PIM churches, being compliant with Diocesan directives, will be able to restart in person worship next Sunday, 6 Sept. Our Clergy will begin their regular rotation, with the exception of our Canon Missioner. Rev. Gina continues to recover. As a result of this, St. Matthew’s will have Morning Prayer. All others will have a Priest. It will be outstanding to be together once more!
