In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, welcome.
This sung Eucharist is a Rite I service, meaning that it uses the more traditional language of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer. This service includes lessons, prayers, congregational singing, a sermon, and Holy Communion. All baptized Christians are welcome to make their communion in The Episcopal Church.
If you aren’t yet baptized but are considering it, let us know! Contact us and we’ll be happy to talk about it.
This morning, we welcome the Right Reverend Michael Smith as our celebrant and preacher. Bishop Smith serves as assisting bishop until the Diocese of Albany elects a new bishop. Bishop Smith previously served as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Dakota for fifteen years. Since then, he has served as Assistant Bishop of Dallas and Assisting Bishop of the Navajoland Area Mission where he organizes the Navajoland Iona Collaborative working in the formation of Indigenous leaders from the Four Corners Region and the Diocese of Alaska. An enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation of Oklahoma and a Benedictine oblate of St. John’s Abbey, he lives in Minnesota when he is not on the road. His wife, the Rev. Lisa White Smith, is the rector of a parish there and they are the parents of three grown children and grandparents of nine.
