Children from the Cultural Arts Program took part in the Easter Day Services. There were special performances by the Dance Class and the Youth Choir. Also at the Coffee Hour we enjoyed the cakes and cup cakes that they baked during the Saturday program. And, of course, there was an Easter Egg Hunt following the Service.
Remembering the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The CWW parishes are three of the twenty-four Bronx Episcopal parishes represented in the Bronx Council (Officers of our three Bronx Interparish Councils) and are members of the South Bronx IPC. The Annual Bronx-wide Martin Luther King Day Celebration was hosted by the South Bronx IPC and held at St. David’s on January 21. In spite of the very cold weather, the multicultural service was well attended. The Celebrant was the Rt. Rev. Andrew ML Dietsche, Bishop of New York, and the Rev. Hilario Albert, Priest-in-Charge (ret.), St. Peter’s Church, Port Chester, preached. The Rt. Rev. Allen K. Shin, Bishop Suffragan and the Rt. Rev. Mary D. Glasspool, Assistant Bishop, also participated. The day’s Offering was designated for the Bronx Council’s MLK Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Church without Walls Combined Service
We had a wonderful festive bilingual Three Kings Day Service on January 6, the Epiphany. It was also the day for San Juan Bautista’s Bishop’s Visitation, with the Rt. Rev. Andrew ML Dietsche, Bishop of New York, presiding. It was a great afternoon of worship and fellowship.
