What’s happening at Incarnation

Join our email list to receive weekly updates, spiritual reflections, and access information for offerings held via Zoom. Here are a few highlights!

Ecclesia Ministries

Every third Sunday of the month, parishioners are invited to the Parish Dining Room at 12:30 pm to help make sandwiches and pack lunches for Ecclesia Ministries of New York, which serves those who are food and housing insecure.

The Rev. Canon Deacon Denise LaVetty serves an Ecclesia congregation that currently worships in the courtyard of Church of the Transfiguration (29th Street, between 5th and Madison) every Sunday from 2:00 to 3:00 pm. Parishioners are also invited to attend this 2:00 pm service of Holy Eucharist and then distribute the lunches.

Help make worship meaningful

Liturgy is the “work of the people” and requires a village of volunteers – ushers, lay readers, chalice bearers, altar guild, and church tour guides. If you would like to serve in leadership at any of our Sunday or weekday worship services, please contact the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser.

Hospitality Committee Reception

Incarnation’s Hospitality Committee makes Sunday Coffee Hour run smoothly and, in the words of the church’s Mission Statement, helps us provide a “warm and open Christian welcome in the heart of New York City.” Members of the Committee are invited to a special roof-top reception at the Parish House on Wednesday, June 12, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We also invite prospective Committee members. If you are interested in serving your church through this ministry of hospitality, we’d be delighted to have you. Please RSVP to the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser

Newcomers and New Members Reception

Those who have recently begun worshiping at Incarnation are invited to a reception hosted by the Rev. Adrian Dannhauser on Wednesday, June 19, 6:00 to 8:00 pm.
