Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Preparing for Baptism

God has blessed St. John's with a spate of new parishioners to be baptised, mostly in the form of newborns (including two sets of twins), but also some older children and an adult as well.

So far we have the 10 people scheduled for Baptism on Sunday, April 23rd.
This is "Low Sunday", the Sunday after Easter. It is called "Low Sunday" because after the Festivities and large attendance of Easter, the mood and attendance are usually a bit lower - but not at St. John's with so many baptisms scheduled!

Please pray for Connor Baggett, Miles DewBerry, Damani Dewberry, Ian Guffy, Lilly Guffy, Margaret Kelly, Piper Perkins, Jon-Jon Perkins, Cici Vogt, Severin Vogt - all scheduled to be baptised on the 23rd.

Also to be baptised in the following weeks (will be away on the 23rd): Jack Hudson-Nelson, Gordon Hudson-Nelson.
