It is a great blessing to live and work in a community where the various religious groups so willingly step up to help each other when it is needed, for which I along with the people of Grace Church am greatly thankful.
The Rev. Mr. Robert Hensley, who has served as rector of Grace Episcopal Church since 2006, celebrates his 30th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood with a special service at 10 a.m. this coming Sunday.
Grace Church knows how to pick up the slack when the Net Result closes and Vineyard Haven goes fishless. They step it up with winter lobster rolls. This Sunday, Feb. 3, they will be serving the filet mignon of the sea from noon until 2 p.m.
Grace Episcopal Church in Vineyard Haven is inviting one and all to its annual Community Christmas Dinner held from noon until 2 p.m. on Christmas Day. The traditional feast includes roast turkey and ham with plenty of side dishes, sweets and pies. Volunteers prepare and serve the food, which is donated by Grace Church parishioners and Island businesses.
