The Magi are Coming!

DCS 0001 2

Perhaps you've noticed that the Magi have been progressively journeying closer and closer (in the window sills) to the manger - they are scheduled to arrive this Friday, the Feast of the Epiphany of Christ to the Gentiles.

Please join us at 6 pm for a service of Holy Communion as we celebrate the 12th Day of Christmas.

Following the service, all are invited to the Rectory for a "Finger Foods" Epiphany Party.

RSVP to Fr. Patterson (jsspatterson@gmail.com or 336-465-2840).

Please bring an appetizer to share.
