Bishop Hughes To Meet with Lay Members

Thursday, August 20
Bishop Carlye J. Hughes

Bishop Hughes is eager to spend time in continued conversation with the members of the diocese, to reflect and consider what we, our churches, and our communities have learned and experienced as we have adjusted to the changes this time has demanded of us.  On Thursday, August 20 19 at 6pm she will host a Zoom Conference for all members of Holy Spirit Verona and our South Central cluster of churches.  Login information will be shared via email.

The Journey Forward

As we begin the journey forward and discuss returning to in-person worship and gatherings, our Bishop, the Right Rev. Carlye J. Hughes, offers some important thoughts: "In-person worship will require all of us, clergy and laity alike, to prioritize the needs of others over our own. It is not simply our own safety we watch over, is it the safety of all those we interact with at home, church, work, and school."  Click here for more info.

Holy Week and Easter 2020 in Extraordinary Time

Seminarian Katherine Rollo at Easter Sunday Coffee Hour

Holy Week and Easter Sunday were most certainly *different* in 2020 due to the pandemic and requirement to keep phyisical distancing.  But, Holy Spirit Verona was gathered as a community for Palm Sunday, Maunday Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday -- we did Virch -- Virtual Church and God was with us!  Read the captions (hover over each photo) to enjoy the photos fully.

Blessing of the Palms 2020

Despite the need to "fast from public worship" we gathered as a community virturally to mark Holy Week 2020.  The liturgies of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday in the midst of a pandemic certainly make for extraordinary time.  Read the captions to understand what was happening in that virch (virtual church) service.

I Can Hear The Bells

On Easter Sunday at 10 am our bells will be rung along with other Churches across the state. The recommendation came from Janet Hoven, Mayor of Chester Borough. Morris County leaders suggest "we hope it will lift everyone's spirits and renew faith in humanity by remembering all the things we are still grateful for. During this time please keep in mind all of those who have been working tirelessly on the frontline to ensure our health, safety, and welfare." #mayitbeso
