Evensong is the sung form of the traditional Anglican Office of Daily Evening Prayer, in which the words of Holy Scripture, choral and organ music, and the silent beauty of sacred space blend and unite the senses in an act of devotion and prayer.
CONFIRMATIONS, RECEPTIONS, AND REAFFIRMATIONS
Due to the retirement of our bishop, all churches will participate in regional confirmations this year. Our date is June 4th. Please speak to the rector if you may be interested.
WALK-ABOUTS: SAVE THE DATES
As we move closer to the election of a new Bishop for the Diocese of Delaware, there will be three "walk-abouts" in our diocese. The dates/locations are listed below. Starting times will be announced later but all will take place in the evening.
• Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - at Christ Church in Greenville
• Thursday, June 29, 2017 - at St. Peter 's in Lewes
• Friday, June 30, 2017 - at Christ Church in Dover
What is the purpose of the Walk-About?
The Walk-About provides a way to introduce the candidates for Bishop to the people of the diocese. This is also an opportunity for the candidates to see a sample of the churches and ministries that are representative of the diocese. The Walk-About is a part of the discernment process in which people of the diocese are asked to listen and prayerfully consider who it is that God is calling to be our next Bishop. This is not intended to be a time to discuss issues but rather a part of the discernment process for both those attending and the candidates.
Who should attend the Walk-About?
All those who will be voting during the election of the new Bishop should plan on attending one of the Walk-About sessions. Other parishioners and non-voting clergy are certainly invited and encouraged to attend. This is your opportunity to hear and meet the candidates before the electing convention.
