Eucharistic Eating

Eucharistic Eating (Lecture Series)

Purpose of the Series

To place our daily eating into the context of the Eucharist and to bring the Eucharist into our daily eating.

Thanksgiving (Eucharisto) is at the heart of Eucharistic eating.

Each lecture will move from the general idea of thanksgiving into the idea of thanksgiving in Holy Eucharist. Each of the potential ideas on any given week will be linked to thanksgiving.

The lectures will be held on Monday’s beginning on March 6, 2017. Lectures will begin at 7 pm and run until roughly 8:30 pm each week.

Some of the ideas found in various weeks may also apprear in other weeks, but I haven’t included them for brevity’s sake. This outline will undoubtedly change over the next 10 weeks, as further reading brings clarity of confusion.

Thoughts, comments, and questions welcomed.

Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

Christmas Eve

St. Philip’s invites you to join us in celebrating the birth of Christ. We will be holding service on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning. On Christmas Eve we will enjoy half an hour of carol singing beginning at 7:00 pm, followed by our celebration of Eucharist, beginning at 7:30 pm. If you are looking for a place to celebrate, to hear once again, or perhaps for the first time, the story of Christmas, please come and join us as we recall the birth of Jesus.
