Worship and weekly news for January 21, 2024

posted in: News, Worship | 0

Hello faith family! This is the Third Sunday after Epiphany – January 21, 2024, Year B. This week, we celebrate Florence Li Tim-Oi, who was the first woman to be ordained to the priesthood in the Anglican Communion, on 25 January 1944. In 1931, Florence Li was present at the ordination of Deaconess Lucy Vincent at St. John’s Cathedral in Hong Kong when the preacher had asked for women to give their lives to work for Christian ministry.

If you are in this situation, please let the clergy know of your needs, pray for the church, and feel no guilt about your giving. But if you are able to give, options for giving include mailing a check to our church or online giving.
