The Third Sunday Of Easter
The Third Sunday Of EasterThe Gospel for The Third Sunday of Easter is from Luke 24, wherein the risen Christ reveals himself on the road to Emmaus to two followers and then later (if you were to continue on past today's Gospel through the rest of Luke 24) to the eleven disciples gathered together, where Jesus actually eats before them a broiled fish and a honeycomb. Is he a ghost? Clearly not. Does he have a body? Yes, but one that is so much more than what we have. What to make of this? These sermons by the Rector might help: For John Updike (2009) The Name and Power of Jesus (2006) Physical Faith (2003)
O God, whose blessed Son did manifest himself to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open, we pray thee, the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Our Sunday School welcomes all children age 3 through high school. We begin to gather at 10:30am on Sunday mornings with informal activities and a light snack before commencing with our class at 11am. The class is especially modeled on key parts of our Episcopal liturgy so that the children will share in the themes and lessons of the day in an accessible and engaging way. Interacting with the Sunday liturgy in a classroom setting will give children a chance to listen and learn together as a Sunday School community. The subsequent break-outs into small, age-specific groups will then allow for deeper exploration through hands-on activities. Children will be brought down to the sanctuary during the offertory to join their families for Holy Communion.
Sunday School runs during the academic year from mid-September through May with breaks for holidays. Please check our calendar for the full class schedule as well as any upcoming events.
The Sunday School room is located in the Parish House. You may enter the Parish House at 1 W 53rd Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues.) Our friendly staff at the front desk can give you directions to the Sunday School room.
