Welcome to St. Bede’s Episcopal Church

We are a welcoming faith community as diverse as the many faces of Santa Fe. Honoring every person as a child of God, we seek to walk with Christ, to love and serve those in need, in our own community and beyond. We worship in the Episcopal tradition and are nourished by prayer, study, and fellowship.

Somos una comunidad de fieles en la que todo el que lo desea es bienvenido, una comunidad tan diversa como las muchas caras de Santa Fe. Al honrar a cada ser como hijo de Dios, aspiramos a seguir los pasos de Cristo, a amar y servir a los necesitados de nuestra propia comunidad y más halla. Adramos según la tradición Episcopal y nos nutrimos espiritualmente de oración, estudio y hermandad.

Forums

Sunday, January 18 at 9:15 am

St. Bede’s will be dedicating the Sunday Forum at 9:15am to Martin Luther King, Jr., in conversation with three of our parishioners of color who will each be spending a short time relating some of their life experiences. The three congregants are Chris Johnson, John Ketchens, and Henry Etta Waters. The fourth participant is Charlie Maxwell, a very active, longtime member of the NAACP, who grew up here in Santa Fe. It should be a highly interesting hour and we urge all of you to come, listen in, ask questions, and support these wonderful speakers!

ST. Bede’s Book Club

The St. Bede’s Book Club will begin again on Monday, January 26.

Our first book for 2015 is the New York Times Bestseller Pigs in Heaven (1993) by Barbara Kingsolver, author of The Poisonwood Bible, The Bean Trees, Homeland, Animal Dreams, Prodigal Summer, and The Lacuna.

Pigs in Heaven is a deeply felt, spellbinding and wise novel that follows Taylor Greer and her adopted six-year old Cherokee daughter Turtle, as they travel roads from rural Kentucky and the urban Southwest to Heaven, Oklahoma, and the Cherokee Nation.

Please join us for six weeks of inspired reading, insightful discussion and spiritual enrichment on Mondays, January 26-March 2, at 12:00 noon in the Common Room. (New and used copies of Pigs in Heaven may be purchased in paperback, hardcover and Kindle editions ($2-$12.50) from Amazon and other outlets.)
