The joy of the Resurrection emerged from a sealed tomb. The gift of peace and hope which comes with Easter emerged out of violence. Easter does not end violence (oh, how we wish it could), but Easter does provide the possibility for the transformation of violence into peace.

Announcement

It is with sadness that we share with you the news of the passing of the Rev. W. Alan King, age 81, on Maundy Thursday, April 17, 2014, in Edgewater, Florida.

Alleluia Fund for Outreach

The Apostles’ House in Newark turned 30 years old last January. Founded by six area Episcopal Churches (House of Prayer, Newark; Trinity Cathedral and St. Phillip’s, Newark; Christ Church, Short Hills; St. Luke’s, Montclair; and St. George’s, Maplewood), the agency’s continuing mission is to provide comprehensive social services to homeless and “at risk” families in an environment that enables and encourages self-sufficiency.

Alleluia Fund for Outreach

We in the Diocese of Newark joyfully celebrate the Easter season by sharing our gifts through the Alleluia Fund for Outreach. Our donation connects us to God's work not only in the familiar confines of our congregations, but also as God is at work in our neighborhoods and communities.

“Darkness and danger – they’re not the only things that live here,” said the Rt. Rev. Mark Beckwith, Bishop of the Diocese of Newark, after praying the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday at 14 sites of violent crimes in Jersey City.

Jersey City’s three Episcopal congregations – St. Paul’s Church in Bergen, Church of the Incarnation and Grace Church Van Vorst – organized the procession, which drew more than 80 participants. Worshipers included members of neighboring churches, city officials and local police, who spent nearly two hours walking, praying and singing together along the 2.25 mile route.
