Grace Episcopal partners with fellow churches to present Easter Vigil service

From Western North Carolina-

A number of community churches are coming together for a special service open to the public Saturday at 7 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church to take part in prayers, communion and other rituals to spiritually prepare themselves to observe Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, St. Mary’s and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, Calvary Lutheran Church and Grace Episcopal Church will all participate in the Easter Vigil service that will be presided over by the Right Rev. G. Porter Taylor, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, according to a press release from Grace Episcopal.

Porter’s biography states that he served for seven years as the rector of St. Gregory the Great Church in Athens, Georgia, before being consecrated as a bishop in 2004. He is the author of “To Dream as God Dreams: Sermons of Hope, Conversion and Community” and “From Anger to Zion: An Alphabet of Faith.”
