Our Wednesday Soup Suppers and Lenten Program continues through March 27th. A sign-up sheet for soup, bread, set-up and clean-up is in the Lewis Commons. The meal starts at 6:00 and the program at 6:30.
The five-week program is “The Episcopal Church 101,” covering the roots of our denomination, our beliefs, and what makes us unique as followers of Jesus. It will be presented February 21st through March 20. There will be a soup supper on March 27th in Holy Week, followed by the service of Tenebrae.
Calvary's High School Youth Group will travel to Scotland, UK for their pilgrimage June 10-20th, 2024. Scotland was selected because of the Episcopal church's historical roots in Scotland, and the deep experience Fr. James and Robyn Shores Foster could help provide. They lived in Scotland for a year during Fr. James Fulbright Scholarship program at Aberdeen. Fr. James will accompany the group, along with Youth Leaders Rachel and Luke DeBoer. Youth will experience Edinburgh castle, Glasgow catacombs, and the site of the first American Bishop consecration in Aberdeen. They will also visit St. Drostan's Episcopal Retreat Center in the Scottish Highlands, stay with host families, and stay on the Scottish island of Iona, a well-known historic pilgrimage site. Contact Youth Leader Rachel DeBoer for questions, donations, or ways to get involved with fundraising.
In January 2023, Calvary finished a 63-niche columbarium, which is a structure for the inurnment of cremains (human ashes). Bishop Folts determined the chapel should be named the Charlotte Augusta Memorial Chapel, or St. Augusta's for short. This is in honor of Charlotte Augusta Astor, for whom the original funds to build the cathedral were given. Inurnment is open to any Episcopalian in the Diocese of South Dakota. If you are interested in learning more about our columbarium, contact Deb Husby at email@example.com
