Welcome to Holy Cross-St. Philip’s Episcopal Church
on Greenway Avenue (at corner of Brookfield and Greenway Avenues)
We regret to announce that the Holy Cross-St. Philip’s Episcopal Church community will cease to meet at 610 Brookfield Avenue, Cumberland, after the 9:30 a.m. service on June 15, 2014. The members of this loving community of faith will be seeking new church communities with which to become worshipping members. On June 15, 2014, we will have a celebration of our history through a Holy Eucharist service and a joyous potluck lunch after. We hope to share stories and memories as we share food and conversation.
On June 1, 2014, there will be no services at 610 Brookfield Avenue when the community of faith will be worshipping at Emmanuel Parish, 16 Washington Street, Cumberland, at its 10 a.m. service. There will be an extension of welcome and the HCSP community will process as part of that service, sit together as a community, and present as a symbol of thanksgiving and community several items of meaning to Emmanuel Parish, which established St. Philip’s Chapel and Holy Cross Episcopal Church many years ago.
Please join us for the June 1 welcoming service at Emmanuel Parish and the June 15 celebration of our time together as a community of faith, witness and service.
Holy Cross-St. Philip’s Episcopal Church has roots going back to the 1860s. We are Anglo-Catholic in outlook and temperament, with a love for the richness of the Anglican liturgy. But we also celebrate with equal joy both Traditional and Contemporary liturgies, trying to make worship a meaningful experience for all who participate. We like to think we have the fullness of our traditional past, but we are also looking forward to the future. Our motto is our mission statement: Together, We are the Church on the way to tomorrow, Proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ, and sharing our faith with all.
We hope that you will choose to visit us in person. We would love to meet you!
