Dr. J. I. Packer, like C. S. Lewis before him, is an Anglican theologian and writer who is respected by Christians of every tradition. In an era of theological controversy and division, Packer, like Lewis, identifies Anglicanism as "mere Christianity." He says, "Ideal Anglicanism...is...mere Christianity, the Apostolic religion of the New Testament without addition, subtraction, or distortion... The emphases of Evangelicalism are no more than underlinings of aspects of Anglicanism" (Packer, Anglicanism for Tomorrow).
Sunday, March 25th is Passion Sunday, the beginning of Passion-tide, and our monthly Potluck Luncheon. Morning Prayer is at 9:30 AM, followed by the Holy Communion at 10:00 AM, with the luncheon immediately following worship. Nursery care for children under the age of four is available during our 10:00 AM Service. Everyone is invited to attend. There is always plenty of good food, and visitors need bring nothing but themselves. They are our guests.
We will be celebrating the Holy Communion on Monday, March 26th, at 12:10 PM for the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. As always, the Holy Communion will also be celebrated on Wednesday, March 28th, at 12:10 PM.
Holy Cross Anglican Church is a faithful and friendly congregation, and we have a place for you!
