Please join us in the year's Chrism Liturgy, which will take place at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in South Bend on Thursday, 6 April beginning at 9 a.m.

This year we are doing a new thing, that is, gathering with our sisters and brothers in the Indiana - Kentucky Synod of the ELCA. We have been in full communion since 2001 and this gives us an opportunity to be more intentional about getting to know one another, listening to each other's stories, worshiping together, sharing a meal and exploring how we may engage in God's mission together.

So, bring your stories, bring your dreams, bring your voices as we join in worshiping our Triune God during this Lenten Journey. I look forward to see you there!
