Bishop Seage speaks often about striving to be one Church. When the Chapel of the Cross graciously allows me the time to preach and celebrate the eucharist at another church, we are living into that call of being one Church.

Early Comments by Steve Middleton

Steve Middleton shared an original poem with the Vestry last Wednesday which imagines what passers by might have thought when Margaret Johnstone was originally constructing the Chapel in 1848.
