           "He is risen. The Lord is Risen Indeed. Alleluia!"

This is the traditional greeting that Christians exchange on Easter Sunday morning. We are told in the Gospel of Luke, that after the Resurrection, two disciples walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus encountered Jesus on the way. They invited him to sup with them at an inn as it was toward evening and getting dark. At the meal, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it. At that moment they recognized him as the Christ. He then vanished, and they immediately rushed back to Jerusalem to tell the other disciples what they had seen. They found the eleven and others gathered together saying “The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon (Luke 24:34 ESV).” Then they told their own story of recognizing Christ as He broke bread with them at the inn.

Thus, each Easter Day we repeat with joy the words of the witnesses who saw Christ after he had died on the Cross and had risen from the dead. They remind us of the joyous news that we celebrate each Easter and every Sunday morning. The good news that Christ had the power to overcome death, obtain forgiveness for our sins, and give us hope for salvation and eternal life with Him.

March was a busy month for us as we prepared the church and ourselves for Holy Week and The Sunday of the Resurrection. On Marsh 20, Bishop Brian Marsh gave a talk on “What it means to be an Anglican?” He covered a wide range of topics from early Christian History in Roman England to the 1886 Lambeth Quadrilateral Meeting in Chicago that set forth a four-point statement of Anglican identify; the differences between “high church” and “low church;” the role of the sacraments in our lives; and the blessings of our unique Book of Common Prayer, the basis of all our worship services. The talk was followed by a half hour of enthusiastic conversation and questions.

The parish of the Good Shepherd wishes all our friends in Charlestown and the Greater Fall Mountain area, a wonderful and blessed Eastertide.


Whatís Menís Meeting?

The next meeting of Men's Morning will be held on Saturday, April 14 at 8:00 a.m. in the meeting room under the Charlestown Library. The intent is to provide a relaxed open time for men to meet, share coffee, snacks, and talk. This is an opportunity to meet new friends, see old ones, and just relax before starting your Saturday chores.

These events are sponsored by the Charlestown Area Church Network.

The intent is to provide a relaxed open time for men to meet, share coffee, snacks, and talk. A lot of men donít have many friends, so this is a chance to meet new ones, renew old ones, and just relax.

The Diocesan Shield


The Shield of the Diocese of the Northeast of the Anglican Church in America consists of the red Cross of St. George on the white shield, calling to mind the Anglican heritage of the Diocese. In the left quadrant is an Evergreen Tree, sturdy and resilient, even amidst the harshness of winter. A Pastoral Staff intersects the Cross of St. George, slightly bent, the Staff is in movement telling of the continuous growth of the Diocese of the Northeast. Crowning the shield is the Pontifical Mitre, jeweled and ornamented, as a sign of joy. The color of the Mitre is predominantly blue, symbolic of contemplation and wisdom, and in honor of St. Mary.
