Return to Grace

Grace and Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church



It was with abundant joy, that today, we celebrated the return of the parish to our historic property on Tejon Street in downtown Colorado Springs. Five hundred plus of the faithful attended this morning's 11:30 Choral Service. The only fly in the ointment appeared to be the very fine line we needed to walk between our joy at coming home and the solemnity of the Passion of Our Lord.

Again, we offer grateful thanks to First Christian Church, also in downtown, for their wonderful hospitality during our time of exile.

Leslie, I'm so glad you were able to return home on Palm Sunday! It must hold special meaning.
I did not think I was going to be able to attend any service today (due to driving) but ended up having to take Gary's jacket to the Base, so went to the very small chapel service there. it was intimate and warm, with probably 12 at most. There was something special about communion with that small a group.
Large and small, a day of celebration and solemnity.

That is one gorgeous church. You'll have to tell me how the service was and describe how pretty the inside looked.
