Our beloved Rector!.
At Holy Cross Anglican Church, we come to worship our Lord corporately. What this means, is that we gather together as a family, and worship our Lord together in unity. As the Body of Christ, we lift up each other to Him as we worship and pray together.
At Holy Cross, we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, and we accept and strive to follow the thirty-nine Articles of Religion as found on pages 603-611 of the Prayer Book.
Our Sunday services are held at 10:30 A.M every Sunday morning, celebrating Holy Communion. We also celebrate Holy Communion on Wednesday evenings at 6:15 P.M. Wednesday evening is followed up by Bible Study, which begins at 7:00 PM. All other Prayer Book Feast day services are held at 12:00 P.M unless otherwise stated. (Specific services will be announced by the Rector.)
Those who are unfamiliar with our Traditional Anglican service according to the Book of Common Prayer (1928), please note that there are some yellow booklets in the pews for your ease of following the service. If you cannot find one available please ask the usher to provide you with one. He will be glad to do so!
Please remember, that you are not here as a spectator, but to worship and join with the hearts and voices of the other people in the united adoration of our Living God. Your Priest is here to worship with you and to provide the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist to you.
Fr. Scott was baptized in the Roman Catholic Church when only a baby. After a long search and through a whirlwind tour of churches, Fr. Scott and his family (beautiful wife Rebecca and wonderful Viking son Brad!) joined St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church in Delray Beach, Florida. Fr. Scott entered Holy Apostles College and Seminary to begin his studies to become a priest in the Anglican Communion. On March 19, 2016, Fr. Scott was ordained a priest by the Rt. Rev. Walter Grundorf and is currently serving as a supply/assistant priest at Holy Cross Church in Farragut, TN, St. Peter's the Apostle Church in Kingsport, TN, and St. Mary the Virgin Anglican Church in Delray Beach, FL.
