Holy Week in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd

from Fr. Kevin:

We will be trying a few changes for Holy Week this year. 

On Holy Tuesday, we will transfer the foot washing gospel and ceremony to the Community Eucharist at 5:30 PM, so that the entire GTS community, including our children, can experience that wonderful ceremony (note: if  you have shoes that slip on, they are a good idea). 

On Maundy Thursday at 9:50 AM, we will place our focus on the Last Supper, along with the stripping of the altar and the procession of the reserve sacrament to the altar of repose.  Read more...

Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Renewal, and Reconciliation Conference

Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Renewal, and Reconciliation Conference

Living Sacrifices: Repentance, Renewal, and Reconciliation
A conference on Anglicanism and the Church

6-9 June 2017

This conference focuses on the necessary connection between repentance, reconciliation, and renewal, which we approach under the heading of “living sacrifice,” drawn from St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. Sacrifice, after Christ’s example, draws the faithful into a transformative participation in his Passion, through which death is overcome. In this perspective, repentance serves as the offering that enables forgiveness and reconciliation.
