+ The Book of Common Prayer allows us to pray together and contains services and prayers for all the sacraments and sacramental rites.

+ All baptized persons are invited to receive communion in the Episcopal Church.
This Season's Color: Green
What it symbolizes: This "Season after Pentecost" is a time in which we re-enact the story of salvation proclaimed in the preceding seasons. The liturgical color of green symbolizes growth. The season falls within spring and summer, when we see the natural world grow green with leaves, vines, and crops. Therefore, green symbolizes our own spiritual growth in Christ, nurtured by the Church and the Gospels.
When this color is used: Late spring and summer
