The Seventh Sunday Of Easter

The Seventh Sunday Of Easter

The Seventh Sunday of Easter is also called The Sunday after Ascension Day. Because Ascension Day is always the 40th Day of Easter and Pentecost is always the 50th Day, The Sunday after Ascension Day is always the Sunday preceding the Day of Pentecost.

These last 10 days of Easter are called Ascensiontide, the period of time after Christ ascended to the Father, yet before the coming of the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. To the contemporaries of Christ, it was therefore a time of waiting.

Collect:

O God, the King of glory, who hast exalted thine only Son Jesus Christ with great triumph unto thy kingdom in heaven: We beseech thee, leave us not comfortless, but send to us thine Holy Ghost to comfort us, and exalt us unto the same place whither our Savior Christ is gone before; who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.

11:00 AM

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.

Location

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.
