Kola Owolabi in Concert - Kelty Organ Recital, Saturday, March 25, 2017, 7:30 PM, Free & Open to Public 

Movie Night, Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 pm—Calvary is our Movie Night selection.  It is not a historical Jesus story, however it does contain an obvious Christ-figure in the lead character Fr. James (played by Brendan Gleeson).   Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia reviewed the movie in  He stated that Gleeson gives the best performance of a good priest that he has seen in years.  Archbishop Chaput says the story makes this movie.   In the first scene a parishioner enters the confessional and from behind the screen and says he intends to kill Fr. James in a week from Sunday.  We, the audience, do not see the potential murderer-to-be, but Fr. James has recognized the voice of the parishioner.  He spends the next week doing his job and living among and trying to help a large number of eccentric characters while his Calvary approaches. Archbishop Chaput also cautioned that this movie is not for the young or more sensitive viewers.  This caveat is echoed in a review by John Mulderig of Catholic News Service that states "it's not for the summertime popcorn set" alluding to language, violence, and sensitive subject matter."  However... "mature viewers prepared for rugged material, on the other hand, will likely consider their investment of time and attention well rewarded."  So please join us if you can in the 2nd Floor of the Office Building.  Popcorn will be provided, and discussion of this powerful film follows.

Tri-Covenant SigningTri-Covenant Agreement

Whereas, it is the will of our Lord Jesus Christ “that they may be one”; and

Whereas, the highest leadership of the Roman Catholic and Anglican Churches have expressed a desire for growth toward full unity; and

Whereas, the Bishop of Kentucky (Episcopal), the Bishop of Kentucky (United Methodist), and the Archbishop of Louisville (Roman Catholic) have expressed full support and encouragement of covenant relationships among the congregations of these Churches;

Now therefore we solemnly and reverently enter into the Covenant, and we do pledge:

  1. To pray at Sunday worship for each other’s Bishops, Pastors, and Congregations by name;
  2. To maintain a joint Tri-Covenant Committee;
  3. To gather regularly for worship, formation, and social outreach; and
  4. To exchange newsletters and other appropriate communications.

We pledge ourselves to these objectives and pray the blessing of Almighty God on this Covenant, that we may be faithful to it, to God’s Honor and Glory.

In Witness Whereof, we have hereunto set our hands this twentieth day of May in the Year of Our Lord, Two Thousand and Seven.
