Announcements and updates from St. Philip the Deacon Episcopal Church in Portland, Oregon.

Celebrating the Triduum

While Easter is every Sunday, the Great Three Days—the Triduum—are like one great Sunday. We have created a service booklet that allows you to pray the three central days of the Christian year at home or with family. The Maundy Thursday liturgy is designed to be done over a meal, or after, as you choose. Good Friday and the Easter Vigil will be celebrated via Zoom.

Palm Sunday Liturgy

Join us online at 10am for Palm Sunday Liturgy. We will join via video the Diocesan Blessing of the Palms, and continue with Morning Prayer, and then share coffee hour.

Celebrating Holy Week

Right now, Holy Week is almost upon us, a week we will spend at home. While this may seem strange to us, many of our Lenten and Holy Week practices began in the homes of early Christians, and only later grew into the magnificent services to which we have grown accustomed. At St. Philip, we will start by gathering over Zoom to celebrate the Liturgy of the Palms, and join with our sisters, brothers and friends across our Diocese throughout the week.

Practices We Love: The Culture of St. Philip

Join us for our June Lunch & Chat: The Practices We Love! Every place has a way of doing things, a way of being together, customs and practices that give us meaning, joy, identity, and hope. On June 2nd we will gather over a hearty salad to take a look together at the practices we love, ask what they mean to us, how they express our deeply held values, and how they help us welcome others into our beloved community.

The Ordination of Jeanne Elizabeth Kaliszewski
