Dedication of St. Charles of Brazil in Lansdowne, Maryland

Posted in church events by Mike on October 23, 2009


We formally dedicated on October 18 our new parish in Maryland, St. Charles of Brazil, named for our founder, Charles Duarte-Costa, with a Eucharistic liturgy at 3:00 followed by a meal shared in common. Our Presiding Bishop, Tony Santore, led our Eucharistic assembly joined by other CACINA clergy, Pastor Kristi Kunkel of Our Saviour Lutheran Church, and Rev. Joan Stiles. Here are some photos from the day.

We gather for Eucharist:

We shared a meal afterward to celebrate what God is doing among us:
