Morning Prayer until November 1st.
On Sunday, August 16, we announced our intention to start using the office of Morning Prayer as our principle Sunday morning worship service. We are hosting a series of conversations to help deepen our understanding and appreciation both for worship in the Anglican tradition generally, and Morning Prayer in particular. Through these discussions, we hope to hear from many of you about your hopes for worship at All Angels.
Collaboration with NYC Relief
In the past few weeks, local papers such as the West Side Rag and the New York Post have written extensively about the four new shelters that have taken residence in vacant hotels on the Upper West Side, just around the corner from All Angels’ Church. There are varying viewpoints about how the shelters were brought to the neighborhood, their impact on the quality of life in our community, and how to best manage the influx of new residents. Our All Angels’ family may also encompass varied perspectives, however as a church committed to loving our neighbors experiencing homelessness as “one community in Christ,’ we are prayerfully considering how we ought to respond to the needs of the community.
As an immediate response, we invited NYC Relief to the Pathways Drop-in program on Thursday, August 18th from 11am-2pm to do outreach. This was a pilot outreach to connect new shelter residents to the community, seek peace among our neighbors, and help us see where the greatest need is. We served 70 meals and passed out 75 toiletry kits outside the church that day, on top of the regular services offered indoors.
