It's a weird Easter. And our Vicar Dana Colley Corsello has been feeling it, too.

"Those little resurrections, my friends, I'm telling you, they're there. We just have to look for them in different places."

Join Dana (and St. Dolly of Pigeon Forge) for a brief morning service of prayer in Resurrection Chapel as we begin the day.

It looks like the storm has passed over and the sun has come out, at least for a little bit. It is the day after, if you will. Monday in Easter week, Jesus has been raised from the dead. The miracle has happened. Hallelujah, Christ is risen.

The Collect for Holy Saturday from the Book of Common Prayer:

O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath, so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

And Jesus said to [his disciples], “I am deeply grieved, even to death; remain here, and keep awake.”

Welcome to our virtual prayer watch. Many churches have a tradition of setting aside a chapel of repose for individuals to come and pray between the time of the Maundy Thursday service and the Good Friday service.

The altar has been stripped and the reserve sacrament is left out, and we are invited to stay and pray for an hour (or however long we’re able), just as Jesus asked his disciples to stay awake and pray with him as he retreated into the Garden of Gethsemane.

This space will be open through the night until 12 pm Eastern on Good Friday, and every hour individuals including clergy will be present here to pray with you. Please free free to comment with your prayer requests, and to respond to others to let them know you’re praying with them. During your time, you may watch the candle, close your eyes, listen to favorite hymns, read scripture, or do whatever draws you closer to Jesus.

We’re glad you’re here.

If you’re still hoarding more food and supplies than you need, please, please stop. Please think of others – especially the most vulnerable, and those risking their health to look after us. Leave enough for everyone. We depend on each other.

If your cupboards are full, here’s an idea – take a few items to your local food bank, or ask if your neighbours need something. Find out how you can support your local food bank here: https://www.trusselltrust.org/

And to put it a bit more strongly for followers of Jesus – there is no Christian justification for hoarding more than you need. As John the Baptist said in the Gospel of Luke, “Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.”

St. Peter's Rummage Sale is postponed, and a new date will be announced. Please don't bring any donations by the church until we have officially reopened.

03/11/2020

Dear Church Family,
With caution and concern for those most vulernable, the Bishop has decided to close down all church buildings and gatherings across the Diocese for the next two weeks. This includes all programs, gatherings and Sunday worship. Just Lunch will be suspended and the Rummage Sale postponed. I will be working remotely and providing pastoral care where it is most needed. I can always be reached via email at [email protected]. This is all happening quickly and I will do my best to keep everyone informed.
Our St. Peter's Early Childhood Program will continue to operate normally for the time being, most likely following MCPS. Sarah Vandersea and I will work to make sure appropriate care is taken of our children.

Please know that I am devasted and heartbroken by this news. I stand by the Bishop and respect her decisions. Please pray for all who are struggling with CoVid 19 Coronavirus.

Blessings,
The Reverend Emily Lloyd+
Rector
