Welcome to Grace Church
A Letter from Bishop Sean:
Living Under the Shadow of the Lynching Tree
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
The spring meeting of the House of Bishops concluded today, and I am grateful to have had a time of retreat and collegial reflection with so many colleagues and friends. At the close of our meeting, those of us gathered–137 bishops from across the Episcopal Church–unanimously approved a statement expressing our concern about the current political climate in the United States.
Grace Church is looking for an organist with classic training and experience to serve the parish, providing meditative and joyful ambience to the sacred litrugies, accompanying the choir and celebrating with us the wonder and myster of praise to our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer. Alternately, we would accept one with keyboard experience who looks to learn the joys, majesty and nuances of the pipe organ.
The liturgy at Grace Church is both traditional and progressive, solemn and joyful and is based on the Book of Common Prayer, with Holy Communion as the primary celebration. The 1960 Moller pipe organ is the finest in our area, modeled on a traditional English instrument set in the fine acoustic of an historic building. Plans are currently underway for a complete renovation and expansion of the instrument.
Applicants are hoped to be aware of, or knowledgable in the Anglican choral tradition, classical organ repertoire and liturgical planning.
For more information, interested parties may call the Rector on his cell-phone at 570-241-2685 or the parish office at 570-253-2760.
