We are a small Episcopal Church on the banks of the Rappahannock in Port Royal, Virginia. We acknowledge that we gather on the traditional land of the first people of Port Royal, the Nandtaughtacund, who are still here, and we honor with gratitude the land itself and the life of the Rappahannock Tribe. Our mission statement is to do God’s Will in all that we do.

8. Passion Prayers

"Inspired by the St. Matthew and the St. John Passions of J.S. Bach, which interweave scripture texts with commentary, I gathered hymns, prayers, and art as responses to the text of the passion according to St. Mark. I chose northern European paintings of the 15th and 16th century, focusing on details to prompt the imagination toward completing the mood and event. Perhaps I meant the pictures to be like day to day impressions, shards of reality which carry complete truths. – Suzanne Guthrie

Holy Week with Jesus – TryTank This resource asks for your mobile phone number. “This year, from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, you’ll receive text messages in real-time so you can walk with Jesus during his final days. When we say ‘real-time’ we mean it! Some text messages will arrive early in the morning or late at night as we truly walk with Jesus and experience the events leading to His death and resurrection. As you read the texts, our hope is that you’ll live the Easter story as if it were happening in the moment.”
