The 4th Sunday after Epiphany

Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday School

Mark's Gospel takes us next to Capernaum, where Jesus visited the Synagogue on the Sabbath.   All were astounded by the way Jesus spoke with authority about the Scripture; this was compounded when Jesus exorcised an unclean spirit that had identified him as the "Holy One of God."

Readings for the 4th Sunday after Epiphany, Year B
Deuteronomy 18:15-20
Psalm 111
1 Corinthians 8:1-13
Mark 1:21-28

St. Clare's Ministries

  • Episcopal Church of St. Peter & St. Mary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

St. Clare's Ministries is a Jubilee Ministry of the Diocese of Colorado that serves the homeless and working poor from the Episcopal Church of St. Peter & St. Mary in Denver's Baker neighborhood.

A hot meal is served at 6pm on Tuesday evenings, serving between 75 and 200 guests each week (holidays included).  An optional Holy Eucharist takes place at 5pm, and this growing "emergant church" demonstrates how St. Clare's has evolved from a "soup kitchen" to a caring community. 

St. Clare's clothing closet opens at 6:30 to provide toiletries, new underwear, clean clothing, and other essentials.  During the winter months, we provide hats, gloves, coats, heavy socks, blankets, and a limited number of sleeping bags to meet the needs of our guests.

Teams from St. Elizabeth's help with both the Supper and the Clothing Closet on 5th Tuesdays of the month (four times each year).  You are invited to join us.

Laundry Love

Laundry Love

On the final Saturday morning of each month, St. Elizabeth's ministers to our neighbors by paying for and providing supplies for them to do their laundry.

As each month comes to an end, many families are simply "tapped out."  Laundry can be a significant expense when one must choose among paying the rent and/or utilities, buying food, and all the other necessities of life.

This is a ministry that even a small church like St. Elizabeth's can perform with a few people and a modest budget.

Regional Confirmation

The High Plains Region includes some 26 congregations (generally east of I-25) from Castle Rock north and east to Sterling.  Each spring, those congregations gather at St. John's Cathedral in Denver, where the Bishop will perform the Laying-on of Hands for three groups.

  1. Confirmands:  Baptized members who have been prepared for Holy Confirmation, by which they affirm the Baptismal Covenant in a public act.
  2. Receptions:  Those who have previously been Confirmed in other faiths are Received as Confirmed members into this Communion.
  3. Reaffirmations:  Baptized & Confirmed members are welcome to make a public Reaffirmation of the Baptismal Covenant, especially at times when they are beginning or renewing their walks of faith.

St. Elizabeth's will be blessed by 3 Confirmands, 2 Receptions, and 3 Reaffirmations this year.

A reception will follow.

We invite you to join us.  Parking can be tight, so carpools are encouraged.  
Please see Fr. Bill for assistance.

Please join us as we celebrate God's love in the form of the "Word made flesh," Jesus Christ.  As we proclaim each week,

"Wherever you are on your journey of faith,
you are welcome at the Lord's Table.

Holy Eucharist, Rite II (spoken)

We will celebrate a simple Holy Eucharist on Christmas morning for those who prefer this hour.  Like our Wednesday Evening Prayer services, this smaller service provides an opportunity for those who wish to worship in a safe and sacred space, easing into our form of worship instead of being dropped into Sunday morning.

Wherever you are in your journey of faith, you are welcome at the Lord's Table.

Readings for Christmas, Proper I:
Isaiah 9:2-7
Psalm 96
Titus 2:11-14
Luke 2:1-20

The 2nd Sunday after Epiphany

Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday School

The 2nd Sunday after Epiphany continues the series of "theophanies" (manifestations of God) that mark the Gospel reading during this season.  Here, Jesus calls upon Philip to follow him.  In turn, Philip brings Nathaniel to meet the one "about whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote."

From a distance, Jesus sees Nathaniel and proclaims him to be "truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit."  After a brief interchange, Nathaniel proclaims, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God!"

Readings for the 2nd Sunday after Epiphany, Year B
1 Samuel 3:1-20
Psalm 139:1-5, 12-17
