Bishop Jefferts Schori will be with us as Speaker, Preacher, and Presider to celebrate 150 years of Grace! Part of the history of this congregation is a commitment to women’s ministry in all areas of church life. Grace Church sponsored the first woman for ordination in our Diocese and the first woman to serve on a commission of the larger Episcopal Church. Bishop Katharine was the first female Presiding Bishop of our Church and the first female Primate in the entire Anglican Communion. She is a thoughtful theologian and strong pastoral leader with a commitment to inclusion and a passion for caring for all of God’s creation. Her coming to Grace is an extraordinary opportunity for Grace and the larger community to experience this world leader as she celebrates with us 150 years of being Grace.
On Saturday, May 11, we will be marching behind a huge Grace 150th banner and lining the parade route with Grace to celebrate an Episcopal presence in Holland since 1868! Per Tulip Time rules, we’ll have 24 Grace folks marching and a few in the car trailing. Make sure to give us a shout or a wave when we walk by! Watch the Grace Facebook page or contact the office to find out where other Grace folks will be!
