COLLECT FOR THE SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY

O GOD, who hast prepared for them that love thee such good things as pass man’s understanding: Pour into our hearts such love toward thee, that we, loving thee above all things, may obtain thy promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

READINGS: Romans 6.3 and St. Luke 6.27

COLLECT FOR
ST. OLAF

Almighty God, who didst enable Thy faithful soldier and servant Olaf to play the man; and upon sea and land to endure hardness and to fight the good fight of faith: grant unto us, whom Thou hast called to serve under Thy banner, a single heart to spend and to be spent for Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Rector’s Message

A highlight of the year is our annual Patronal Festival, which we will be celebrating this Sunday with a service of Choral Evensong at 4 p.m. Making this year’s service particularly special is that Bishop Jenny Andison will be joining us to both officiate and preach. I hope you can join us and stay afterward to share in a BBQ dinner on the church lawn.

Olaf is a complicated Saint to have a church named after. Unlike some of the more pious and serene saints of our Anglican calendar, Olaf was a warrior king and (like any other king of his era) did not hesitate to resort to violence. But nonetheless, he did have a major impact on the spread of Christianity and for this we can be thankful. Interestingly, he is one of the last saints to have been universally accepted by the Christian church before the schism between the eastern (what we now call the Eastern Orthodox Churches) and the western church. He is, in this sense, a saint for all Christians. 

Join us this Sunday evening as we give thanks to God for the life of St. Olaf, both king and martyr.
