A PRAYER FOR THIS DIFFICULT TIME OF UNREST IN OUR COUNTRY: Oh God, you have bound us together in a common life. Help us, in the midst of our struggles for justice and truth, to confront one another without hatred or bitterness, and to work together with mutual forbearance and respect; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Book of Common prayer, p. 824
FIRST SUNDAYS OF THE MONTH we will have a Zoom 10AM service with shared communion using pre-consecrated wafers. Small boxes of Communion kits will be available week for pick up at select times at church or will be delivered to Pacificans by Doug Pleasure. Some can be mailed. At the proper time during Sunday’s service, we will share our communion wafer.
Hear Bishop Curry’s powerful sermon at Grace Cathedral:
ALL ST. EDMUND’S SERVICES AT THE CHURCH ARE CANCELLED UNTIL HEALTH DIRECTIVES AND THE DIOCESE ALLOW. WE ARE CONTINUING TO DO ONLY ONLINE SERVES.
PLEASE CHECK OUR FACEBOOK PAGE (see above left) FOR THE LINK TO OUR YouTube CHANNEL FOR OUR ONLINE SERVICES. It will premier at 10am on Sunday but can be viewed later. We invite you to join our Zoom Meeting directly after the 10am service to chat with one another.

“Though I may not be with you, I urge you to answer the highest calling of your heart and stand up for what you truly believe. In my life I have done all I can do to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.”
RESOURCES FOR EXPLORING RACISM AND EQUALITY. See”From the Vicar” in upper right hand corner for a list of resources including: general info, movies, documentaries, books, and poetry.
Also, on June 7th Anna Devere Smith was Grace Cathedral’s guest preacher. Anna’s activism in exploring racism and inequality brought a special perspective to Grace Cathedral’s sermon as our nation and world are seeking to move forward with meaningful dialogue and changes in systemic racism. If you missed her sermon, you can find the link to it on Grace Cathedral’s website at gracecathedral.org. Click on “Services and Sermons” under “Spiritual Life.”
