It was a very emotional morning as we bid farewell to our Rector of 14 1/2 years. Although we couldn’t all gather together in Byrd Hall for a big celebration, the three small farewell outdoor gatherings were just what we needed to let Father AJ know how much we appreciated his time with us and give our best to him and Shannon on their new chapter.
This Good Friday, we put out the call for photographs of crosses from our homes, and gathered them together for a slideshow during our online service. As we are all still stuck at home, may this powerful symbol remind you of how God has connected us -- to Him, and to one another.
St. Augustine’s Church and St. Martin’s Episcopal School are building bridges and changing lives with a program that provides selected Honduran students from Holy Spirit Episcopal Bilingual Episcopal School with scholarships to study at STM in their senior year. Hear the voices of these amazing young people as they describe their journeys. If you are motivated to become involved in this high impact ministry, donate now or call Father A. J. to discuss opportunities!
St. Augustine's participated in the Notre Dame Seminary Bible Marathon 2020, a public reading of the Bible for 100 continuous hours -- and our readers did a great job, in English and in Spanish! The marathon runs from today (Jan 28) through February 1, 2020.
A warm welcome to all our friends from Holy Spirit Episcopal Church & Bilingual School in Tela, Honduras (and thanks to their host families)!
Many thanks to Br. Todd van Alstyne, who came to St. Augustine's for a visit and taught us about the life and legend of St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra. The kids--and adults!--learned a lot.
We had all the ingredients for a successful Consecration Sunday; good weather, good food, good fellowship, good football game. Thanks to everyone for being in that number!
