Memorial Day

The Prayer for Heroic Service from The Book of Common Prayer, page 839, No. 6:
O Judge of the nations, we remember before you with grateful hearts the men and women of our country who in the day of decision ventured much for the liberties we now enjoy. Grant that we may not rest until all the people of this land share the benefits of true freedom and gladly accept its disciplines. This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
Have a safe Memorial Day Weekend and remember to give thanks for those who serve and served. If you are not traveling, we hope to see you in church for the Sixth Sunday of Easter: Rogation Sunday!

Rogation Sunday in Oak Ridge

May 25, The Sixth Sunday of Easter, is also Rogation Sunday - It is a big day for Church of the Redeemer in Oak Ridge. They are our partners in the Episcopal Mission of Northeast Louisiana. I hope that St. Thomas' will send representatives to celebrate with the folks in Oak Ridge on that day!
