Cave Readings: Clybourne Park​ by Bruce Norris​

THE OLMSTED SALON & SEADOG THEATER COMPANY
present a reading of Clybourne Par by Bruce Norri

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park by Bruce Norris is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. Two scenes, fifty years apart, are both set in the same modest bungalow on Chicago’s northwest side. In 1959, Russ and Bev are moving out to the suburbs after the tragic death of their son. Inadvertently, they have sold their house to the neighborhood’s first black family. Fifty years later in 2009, the roles are reversed when a young white couple buys the lot in what is now a predominantly black neighborhood, signaling a new wave of gentrification. In both instances, a community showdown takes place, pitting race against real estate with this home as the battleground.

Devotion Groups resume for the Christmas/Epiphany Season

This sessions will run for 2 weeks: Jan 8th - 20th. To find a group that fits your schedule, head here.

“Devotion Groups” at Calvary ~ St. George's are small groups of parishioners who meet together weekly during specific seasons of the church calendar to devote themselves to Jesus and one another through prayer, scripture reading and a brief Bible study.  They are called “Devotion Groups” because they follow one of the Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families described above in the Book of Common Prayer: morning,noon, early evening or “at close of day." The groups meet for just an hour, and follow a guided and time-tested format. You'll enjoy the brief guided study, engage in group prayer and meet new friends from our parish.  The aim is to keep the time commitment small, but the takeaways large.

Calvary To Be Lit Red In Support of Persecuted Christians

As a call to stand up for religious freedom, Calvary Church will light its outside façade in red from December 20-24, 2017.

The first church in New York City to join the Red Wednesday Campaign, it’s hope is to bring awareness of the persecution of Christians. This symbolic gesture will commence with a worship service on Wednesday, December 20th at 6 PM at the Park Avenue South & 21st Street address. 

Started in 2016, the Red Wednesday Campaign began as a United Kingdom initiative, then spread to other parts of Europe and Brazil. Facades that have been illuminated in red include Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral, Houses of Parliament and Oxford University, all in England. Also lit up have been the Fontana de Trevi in Italy, Sacred Heart Basilica in France and Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil.

“Most people don’t realize that Christians continue to be the most persecuted faith group in the world. We invite all New Yorkers to join us and take a stand for religious freedom,” stated the Rev. Jacob Smith, Rector of Calvary-St. George’s Parish. “And what better color to use than the color red, the Christian color of martyrdom.”

Last year, 215 million Christians experienced high or extreme levels of persecution in the 50 countries where it’s most difficult to openly follow Jesus Christ. These Christians often face beatings, abductions, rape, torture, forced marriages and death.

The Wednesday evening service will take up a collection for the Take Action for Persecuted Christians group sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The spotlighting of the church will follow the service. All are welcome. #RedWednesday
