is this Sunday, November 24th
The last Sunday of what the Church has always called Ordinary Time, or the Season after Pentecost, was designated by Pope Pius XI as a day when we celebrate Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords. Soon after the Roman Catholic Church began to celebrate Christ the King Sunday, her close cousins the Anglicans, as well as many other Christian denominations, followed suit. So this Sunday, November 24th, St. Stephen's joins with the Church Catholic (the Universal Church) in proclaiming Christ as King! We hope you will join us at either our 8:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. service on this special Feast Day. We will make a joyful noise as we sing praises to God from our wonderful Episcopal hymn book; we will offer up ancient and beautiful prayers for our church, our world, our nation, and our community; we will hear a message of hope from the priest, we will share the sacred meal of Holy Communion as we partake of the Sacrament of Christ's body and blood, and we will enjoy coffee, tasty snacks, and good fellowship immediately following each service. So no matter if you are new, or are a "veteran" of St. Stephen's, you are welcome!!!
