Letter from the Rector: ALLELUIA! CHRIST IS RISEN!
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Alleluia, Christ is risen! This Sunday, we will gather with Christians near and far to celebrate the miraculous fact that the tomb was empty: Jesus rose from the dead. With that divine act, Jesus broke the bonds of death and now offers us the hope and knowledge of new life, even in death.
Church of Our Saviour is a vibrant faith community, welcoming all, empowered by sacramental worship to joyfully serve others in Christ’s name.
I arrived as Church of Our Saviour’s new rector in August of 2019. My wife Anne (also an Episcopal priest) and my three daughters Eleanor (age 10), Harriet (age 6), and Frances (age 3) feel deeply grateful to call COS (and San Gabriel) our home. This church has a very strong sense of community, and we are always honored to receive new visitors and new members. We are currently growing in many ways, most especially in our relationship with the risen Christ.
Whether this is the first time you have joined us in worship, or you grew up in this church, we thank you for choosing to spend a portion of your Easter celebration with us. Please participate as you feel comfortable in worship, including sharing in song and receiving communion.
We are better, and our celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is more joyful, because you arrived to worship with us this day. I pray you the grace and unimaginable blessing of the Easter life given to us this day. The Lord is risen Indeed!
