The Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, former Presiding Bishop and Primate

 

“All Gods People are Called to be Agents of Change”

Saturday, May 25, 10:00am-12:00pm, An Address and Conversation

 

Holy Eucharist and Renewal of Baptismal Vows

Parish Conversation with Bishop Jefferts Schori after the Service

Sunday, May 26, 10:30am-1:00pm

 

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.

 


Grace is marching in the Tulip Time parade!

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!

STORIES OF GRACE


We marched!

On May 11, Grace Church had the opportunity to march in the Tulip Time Muziekparade (Music Parade) in honor of our 150th Anniversary. Reverend Jen and about 25 parishioners proudly wore Grace’s 150th tee shirts, while Paul DeConinck and Matt Schmidt wore their Verger robes… Matt even wore wooden shoes! It was wonderful to have people cheering for us on the parade route, and we even heard “we’re glad you are in our community.” We’re glad too!
