Dear Members of the Episcopal Church in Central PA,
Bishop Scanlan shares a message on Good Friday as we journey together as a community.
|All diocesan Holy Week Resources are available online at https://diocesecpa.org/holy-week-2020/. Today’s offering is “Good Friday: The Seven Last Words of Jesus,” which features lay and ordained Episcopalians across the diocese and includes elements of our Book of Common Prayer, Good Friday liturgy, and prayers and collects. Musical interludes will offer time for contemplation or departure. On Saturday, Saint James, Lancaster, is offering a Vigil service of the Word: liturgy with the kindling of fire; proclamation of Pascal Candle; exultet; selected vigil lessons and hymns and reflection; intercessions; blessings and dismissal. On Easter Day, join the staff of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Cathedral for Morning Prayer, with some well-known hymns to sing at home, the Easter message from our Bishop, and a special prayer of Spiritual Communion.|
The diocese created a secure online giving platform for people to donate to any diocesan parish. The website can be found at the following link https://diocesecpa.org/stewardship/ or by simply clicking on the button below. All parishes receive payment through the diocesan offices.
|In the Way of Love,|
The Rt. Rev. Audrey C. Scanlan
