Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 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.

A grand "to-do" yesterday


There was a special service yesterday at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul here in Detroit. The new dean was installed (formerly the Canon to the Ordinary), and other canons were 'seated' as well.


One thing you can say about the Episcopal Church, we clean up and look churchy really well.


Prayers for blessings on the ministry of the Cathedral and the Diocese continued today here at St. John's for the Feast of Ss. Philip and James at the 12:15pm Communion Service.
Please also keep Christ Church, Detroit, in your prayers as their rector of 6 years as departed for warmer climes (Arizona), and they are now entering a period of transition. One would expect that they will not elect a successor as quickly as the Cathedral was able (the old Dean and new Dean overlapped by a month).
God willing, I hope to be here at St. John's a LONG time - pray too for God's continued blessings on our parish that we may grow in grace and membership in the weeks, months, years to come...AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
