We have decked the Bristol Hall foyer with a Christmas Tree loaded with 'ornaments' listing the age and gender of the children of St. Gregory's clients.

Recurring Events

Holy Eucharist

This mid-week celebration of the Holy Eucharist takes place in the Church. It follows the Rite Two liturgy as found in the Book of Common Prayer beginning on page 355. Everyone is encouraged to attend as your schedule permits.
Weekly Bible Study

This Lectionary-Based Bible Study, which uses the Synthesis CE material distributed on Sundays, can be a great help for us to become more familiar with the scripture that will be read on Sundays.

Benedictine Way
Wednesday, December 4, 6:30 pm
This group begins with Evening Prayer. Benedictine Way is the name for a group that gathers weekly with the Rector to explore the 1,500+ year-old Rule of Saint Benedict and Benedictine spirituality and how they can help us to further develop our relationship with God and with each other. Norveen Vest’s book PREFERRING CHRIST is used as part of this time together. More information is available on our website. All are welcome, no prerequisite necessary.
