Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry delivered his Easter 2018 Message while standing outside of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem.
The video is available here.
The following is the text of the Presiding Bishop’s Easter 2018 Message:
Hello on Palm Sunday from St George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem.
There is a passage in the 27th Chapter of Matthew’s gospel where religious leaders, political leaders come together once again after Jesus has been crucified and executed, after he had been buried in the tomb. Once again they come together to seal the tomb, to make sure not even a rumor of his resurrection will happen. And this is what some of them say:
Therefore command the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may go and steal him away and tell the people he has been raised from the dead. And the last deception will be the worse than the first.
It is easy to overlook, and sometimes convenient to forget, that Jesus was executed, Jesus was crucified by an unholy alliance of religion, politics, and economic self-interest. Read more >

Seder Supper with St. John’s Episcopal Church
Please stay for a Haitian-themed lunch and presentation about the Colorado Haiti Project on April 15 after the 10 am service. Front Range Catering is preparing and donating delicious traditional Haitian chicken for the event. This is our annual kick-off to raise scholarships for students at the Episcopal church school in Petit Trou de Nippes in rural Haiti. We’ve proudly supported an entire class in years past. Our goal is to send 30 students to this school, recognized as one of the best in the region. A full scholarship is $350, but donations in any amount are welcome before, during, and after the event. Checks can be made payable to St. Mary Magdalene with CHP/Konbit in the memo line. Please RSVP on the clipboards at church so we have an approximate count, but plan to attend even if you haven’t signed up! Contact Amy Thornbury.
Marge and Ed Szoke have selected a GREAT book for the Book Club! American Savior, a novel of divine Politics, by Roland Merullo. The premise is: Jesus Christ comes down to America and is running for president as an independent. It is quite humorous with themes of religion and politics, and a little bit of sex thrown in to help it sell. Marge and Ed will host us at 7pm, Friday, May 18, at their home. Respond, please, to Ed and Marge.

We are planning another “border immersion” trip to Nogales, a city on both sides of the US/Mexico border. We will learn how legal and illegal immigration affects on life along the border, talk with migrants, walk migrant trials, and visit a sister Episcopal church. We’ll stay at a community center on the Mexico side, and work with the children there. Please contact Fr Bruce to reserve a space or to learn more. Last year the cost was roughly $600/person, including airfare. Click here to see a recent article by the New York Times about Nogales.
