+ St. Frideswide was born in 650. She founded a priory with the help of her father while she was very young. What is today Christ Church Cathedral began as a Saxon monastic church founded in the 8th century by St. Frideswide, the patron saint of Oxford. Frideswide was a Saxon princess who committed herself to chastity and became a nun, fleeing the marital advances of King Algar of Mercia. Nothing remains of her original church, but a Saxon cemetery was recently discovered beneath the cloister. The present church was constructed between 1160 and 1200 by Augustinian monks and called the Priory Church of St. Frideswide. In 1180 the relics of Frideswide were transferred to the new church, which attracted pilgrims throughout the Middle Ages. One pilgrim was Catherine of Aragon, wife of King Henry VIII, who came to pray for a son in 1518. It was in the cloister of Christ Church Cathedral that Thomas Cranmer was “degraded” – his vestments stripped and his head was shaved. He was imprisoned at St. Michael’s at the North Gate and then burned at the stake on Broad Street.
+ Daily Mass is celebrated at 12:15 p.m. You and your family members are all remembered by name at the Altar of God every week. Please take an All Saints parish prayer list home with you & remember your fellow parishioners in your prayers!
+ Don’t forget the Monday Morning Bible Study that meets in the Undercroft at 10:30 a.m. Priscilla King is leading a study of the Epistle to the Hebrews.
+ All Saints’ Men’s Group will meet October 9, 7:00 a.m. in the undercroft.
+ Wednesday Agape & Christian Education is Wednesday October 3. We have regular classes for the nursery and the children, as well as adult education. Fr. Glenn is teaching The Revelation of St. John the Divine at the Wednesday agape. We are especially looking at how the imagery used by John enabled the first Christians to confront the political idolatries in a world dominated by Roman power and ideology. The Revelation calls Christians to eschew those who would make themselves God’s rivals for the hearts and minds of people all over the world.
+Also remember to RSVP Fr. Dan Malcolm who, along with his team is preparing dinner! The agape dinner begins at 5:45 p.m. Child and adult education classes begin at 6:30 p.m. and are over at 7:15 p.m. [email protected]
+ All Saints parishioner may obtain a Mass card from the Church office. A Mass card is a greeting card given to someone to inform him or her that a deceased loved one or friend was remembered and prayed for at a weekly Mass. It is a specifically Christian way to express one’s love. Call Julie McDermott at the Church office (434-979-2842) and she will help you fill out the form. The celebrant will sign the card and we will mail it from the Church to the family of the loved one.
