A Note From the Rector

 

Dear Saints,

This Sunday our church will be filled with new life as we baptize a veritable soccer team of babies and more, welcoming them into the life of faith and to our particular household of God. Baptism is an ancient gift of the earliest church, a gift that in today’s church grounds us in the vocation we share in the ministry of all the baptized. May Sunday’s celebrations inspire you to live out that vocation as you seek to fulfill your baptismal vows in the world this coming week, and may God bless our newest Saints of Midtown!

Peace,

Simon+
