Staying Connected - Fireside Chat #1

Thursday, March 19
The Peace

In these times of "social distancing" we want you to stay connected (even if it's virtually) with your Holy Spirit Family.  Father Jerry will be hosting online meetings (think fireside chat, except you will particpate) so we have an opportunity to "see" our brothers and sisters in Christ while we are "fasting from public worship."  Zoom logon information for March 19 at 7pm is listed below or click photo.

A Message from the Rector

Here is a portion of an email sent late on March 13 to our community.

At Holy Spirit Verona, we will follow the directive of Bishop Hughes and "fast from public worship" this Sunday, March 15 and the following two Sundays.  Everyone is invited to attend an 8am or 10am service via a Zoom (online video) Conference (see below).  For those without access to a computer or camera, a phone number is provided from which a person could listen to the service.  We hope that you will consider joining us virtually.  

Saturday Zoom Test

Saturday, March 14

For three weeks we will be going to "online" Sunday services.  On Satruday, March 14 at 10am we will *test* using Zoom Confering.  Join if you want to try the technology before Sunday.

A Message Our Bishop - March 13

Mar. 13: Eastern congregations to refrain from public worship, other gatherings through Mar. 29

Dear Companions on the Journey,
At our Convention just over a month ago, we focused on a word often found in Holy Scripture, behold. A simple word that sounds old fashioned today. Behold is used to communicate that something important is about to be said or happen in the Bible. When we read or hear that word in the Bible, we could substitute the words: “now listen, this is very important.”

A Reflection on the Start of Lent

It's been awhile since I wrote something on FJ's blog, largely because I often lament over the act of writing.  I enjoy it, but often struggle with the time and focus to get something typed.  Today I am using Nike's theme and saying "Just Do It."
