A church in the heart of the city with the city in its heart.
“Life is a constant Advent season: we are continually waiting to become, to discover, to complete, to fulfill. Hope, struggle, fear, expectation and fulfillment are all part of our Advent experience.
The world is not as just, not as loving, not as whole as we know it can and should be. But the coming of Christ and his presence among us—as one of us—give us reason to live in hope: that light will shatter the darkness, that we can be liberated from our fears and prejudices, that we are never alone or abandoned.”
Third Advent Sunday
Christmas Eve services are at 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm. Nursery will be available at the 6:00 pm service. Christmas Day service is at noon.
This Week at Grace by the Sea
Every week well, [almost every week] Fr. Paul writes a short reflection which is meant to be an aid to taking a fresh look into the Gospel passage that will be read the following Sunday; these one page “reflections” are designed and intended to stimulate thinking about the passage in a new light.
