Feast of the Ascension

ascension-window-close-upThe Feast of the Ascension will be observed at St. Philip’s on Thursday, May 14, at 7 p.m. in the Church. The service will include incense. Our preacher will be the Rev. Katie McCallister from St. Alban’s Episcopal Church. We are pleased to welcome the choir of St. Alban’s under the direction of Stephen Keyl, who, along with several of our staff singers, will provide inspiring musical leadership for our liturgy. Katie serves as the Assistant Rector for Children, Youth, and Family Ministries at St. Alban’s. While a student at the U of A and connected to St. Philip’s through the Episcopal Campus Ministry, Katie was a ministry-intern at St. Philip’s, 2010–2011. Katie left Tucson in 2011 for Virginia Theological Seminary. She received her M.Div and was ordained a priest in May 2014. Immediately following was a call to St. Alban’s. She says her time at St. Philip’s had a lasting impact on her formation and she’s thrilled to be invited to preach on Ascension Day.
