Opportunities for Healing Prayers and Anointing

"Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up." James 5:13-15

James is clear in his letter that if we are suffering, or sick or rejoicing we must come to the community for prayer. Many of us are asked by our friends and loved ones to remember them in our prayers, but often we are unaware of how powerful our prayers can be; powerful enough to bring healing, comfort, and hope. Each Sunday after you have received communion, you are welcome to join a member of Pastoral Care Team to pray with you, for yourself, your family, your friends and especially for those who have asked you to be an instrument of prayer for them. This will take place at the Altar Rail around the Baptismal Font.

Boy Scout Troop 55 Winter Update

In December, scouts from Troop 55 had an amazing time participating in many fun activities. On December 12th, the Troop held their last Court of Honor for the year. At the Court of Honor, scouts received merit badges and rank awards that they had earned throughout the fall. The Troop had a great time exchanging gifts at their traditional Secret Santa holiday party. On December 18th, scouts participated in Wreaths Across America which is an organization that lays wreaths for our fallen heroes. Troop 55 donated 8 wreaths and placed them at Veterans Memorial Park Plaza on Seventh Street. The highlight of the month for the scouts was attending the NY Islanders game on December 19th. The Islanders played the Vegas Golden Knights, but lost that night with a score of 4-3. Troop 55 ended 2021 on a high note and are looking forward to an exciting 2022.

Discovery: Stage II of the Catechumenate Process

Discovery: a process to tell the stories of our life, our faith, our church and our community

Our identity is dependent on having a story that tells us who we are. Our understanding of life's meaning and purpose is dependent on having a story that tells us what the world is like and where we are going. To be a community of faith, we must be a people with a story: a common memory and vision, common rituals or symbolic actions expressive of our community's memory and vision, and a common life together that manifests our community's memory and vision.

Excerpt from: Living Faithfully as a Prayer Book People, John H. Westerhoff

Discovery is an opportunity to have a conversation about faith, prayer, scripture, spirituality, and what it means to be a Christian in today's world, in an atmosphere of hospitality. Participation in Discovery can also lead to Reception into the Episcopal Church, Baptism or Confirmation at the Easter Vigil.

Our conversation begins this Wednesday, January 12th from 7:00pm until 8:00pm on Zoom and continues each Wednesday evening through February 2nd.

If you are interested in joining the conversation register on Realm or if want more information, please email our Cathedral Vicar at mdelaney@incarnationgc.org
