Holy Spirit Vigil

… A daily meditation. A new meditation each day can be found here, beginning Friday May 27

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father,

We turn to you with heavy hearts;
give ear to our call as we cry out to you!
In your faithfulness hear us
and answer us with your comfort and mercy.
Receive into your arms of love and grace
the innocents killed by this violence that roams our land.
Place your hand of healing
upon those who are wounded in body and spirit.
Give comfort and succor
to those who grieve for them.
Fill with wisdom and mercy
those who care for them.
Help us in our confusion;
help us in our fear;
help us in our sorrow.
For you, O LORD, are our only refuge and strength;
You alone are our present help.
Remind us that we are safe in your steadfast love.
Strengthen our resolve to pray for real and lasting change.
And grant us your peace that this world cannot give.
We bless you, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.

AMEN

About Us

“One canon reduced to writing by God himself, two testaments, three creeds, four general councils, five centuries, and the series of Fathers in that period – the centuries that is, before Constantine, and two after, determine the boundary of our faith.”

~Lancelot Andrewes

What We Believe

The Apostles’ Creed

We believe
   in God the Father Almighty,
   Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ
    his only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived
   by the Holy Ghost,
   Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into hell;
The third day he rose again
    from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And sitteth on the right hand
    of God the Father Almighty;
From thence he shall come to judge
   the quick and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Ghost;
The holy Catholic Church;
The Communion of Saints;
The Forgiveness of sins;
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.


Amen.

Mother Jean DeVaty

Rector

Mtr. Jean DeVaty joined us as our Rector on January 1, 2021. She learned what it meant to serve our Lord by assisting her Mom who for many years was the Sunday School Superintendent at First Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh, PA and working alongside her Dad who was always ready to lend a hand to a friend in need.

Others in that faith family also inspired her to a deeper love and commitment to our Lord, and through Youth Group and Christian Camping Mtr. Jean+ realized a call on her life to ordained ministry. Over the years her opportunities to learn at Wheaton College, Wheaton IL (BA, Christian Education and Fine Arts, 1980; MA, Educational Ministries, 1990) and Trinity School for Ministry, Ambridge PA (MDiv, 2005) deepened her understanding of God’s mission for his world.

Various calls to ministry and service from youth ministry to healing ministry, parish care to liturgical worship broadened her understanding of the needs and responsibilities of God’s Church in his world. Mtr. Jean’s hope and prayer for our parish family is that we grow deeper in our love and knowledge of the Lord and through the power of the Holy Spirit use the gifts He has given us to share God’s Good News of Great Joy with our neighbors near and far.
