ST. THOMAS EPISCOPAL CHURCH HOLDS CANDLELIGHT VIGIL

FOR AN UNCERTAIN WORLD

 

On Wednesday evening, February 15th, St. Thomas opens wide its doors for a special Candlelight Vigil: Praying for Wisdom, Courage and Strength in an Uncertain World.  St. Thomas, a beautiful and historic church, is home to a diverse, open and affirming congregation that welcomes seekers, searchers and doubters of all backgrounds into its fold.  The community of St. Thomas invites everyone to join in this special candlelight service.

 

Prayers and meditations will be offered on behalf of the broken-hearted, the angry, those who are weary, despairing and afraid and also those who are hopeful and energized.  According to The Reverend Carol D. Gadsden, rector of St. Thomas, “Bound together in a common life, we struggle for justice and truth.  By way of faith, prayer and meditation, God offers refreshment for our souls, through God’s love, all things are made possible”.

 

Participants in Wednesday’s Candlelight Vigil are asked to bring a candle, to help shed light on God’s love in these uncertain times.
