SFXC PARISH EVENTS
KEEPING YOU UP TO DATE
Life in the time of the coronavirus has slowed down so many things, but for many of us it has been a time of intensification--that is to say, we have increased in our efforts to pray in this time of need. This page is to highlight the ongoing events in parish life. Whether live and in person, or virtual, through the web, we believe that community building must continue and efforts must increase to serve God, each other and our neighbor.
COME WORSHIP WITH US
For our parish to be the hands of Christ in the heart of the city means first to strive to become like Christ. This is the goal of life, that once we accomplish the mission of Christ on earth and leave here we are "to become like God" though what exactly is to become of us has not fully been revealed (1 John 3:2). To take a phrase from the Benedictine tradition (Ora et labora) we know that both prayer and work (or service) are required for the sanctification of the soul. Each and every Christian is a work in progress throughout this life. As we continue to turn to God in prayer, we also are formed by God as we work. In this way we fulfill the two great commandments: to love God with all our heart, soul, and mind and love our neighbor as our self (Matthew 22:38-39).
