From Our Rector, Father Vic Mansfield:
Once again we are reeling from a terrible and senseless tragedy: the bombs that exploded on the route of the Boston Marathon.
There is no reason for such an act except to instill fear. And that it does. Some died, many were injured, all were afraid. In the midst of that, many acted heroically. We move from fear to astonishment to anger, even rage.
Easter shows us God’s definitive YES to life, and NO to violence. There is no reason, no answer as to “why;” at least none that holds water, makes sense, or allays our fears or anger.
We pray for those dead, injured, and wounded in so many ways. We pray for an end to violence. We give thanks for the heroism, kindness, and comfort shown and given.
And let us remember those throughout the world who live with violence, praying for them, and working for another way.
Jesus knows the way of violence, as he walked it. And he has shown us that violence has no victory. As he walks with us, let us also walk with him, in the paths of peace.

On the night before he died for us, Jesus was at table with his friends. For those in
Jesus’ day, meals were always sacred events. For the Early Church, the Eucharist
was usually celebrated in the context of a meal. This night, we will remember
the institution of the Holy Eucharist and share a meal together as Jesus’
disciples shared them. Space is limited and reservations are required. Purchase
your tickets in the Old Well Hall after both services or parish office during the
