Weekly Update

Tonight at the Rockwell House, Episcopal Campus Ministry will meet at our regularly scheduled worship time at 6:30pm to break some bread and share a meal.  This evening we will be gathering in the Rockwell House Chapel, which is located in the back of the house, so just come around and join us.

So Long, Semester. Hello, Summer!

GroupAnother school year has come and gone, and another chapter of the Rockwell House is in the books!  This year has been a fantastic beginning to the process of new ministry here at Rockwell and we are incredibly excited about the next phase of our rebuilding process.  School starts in 109 days, so let's get ready!

This summer we are exploring and experimenting with some of the ways that we use our space at the Rockwell House.  One of the changes will be the conversion of the office upstairs into a social gathering space.  This space will always be available for anyone looking for a place to unwind, lounge, watch T.V., use the computer, etc.  The chaplain's office space will likely then be an open space on the main floor.  The most exciting proposition of all, is...

Emptying the Tomb...GET YOUR STUFF!

Contrary to popular assumption, the Rockwell House is not a storage business!  And believe it or not, we are also not your parent's basement!  Yet, we have acted as your convenient college storage unit, "just to hold my stuff for a few days," which turns into weeks, months, years...

Well, kids, it's time to get your stuff or say good bye forever.  A dumpster will be showing up in a week.  Yes, a week.  And it will be filled with everything that does not belong to the Rockwell House.

Please come by and grab what you want (if it's yours) by May 6th.   If you need to come by after hours email or text me and I will give you the code.



Holy Week Services Start Tonight

Wednesday- Tenebrae 8:30pm
Thursday- Agape Meal 7pm
Saturday- Carpool to Cathedral for  Easter Vigil 7:15pm


Palm Sunday—Planting the Garden

The Sunday is Palm Sunday and marks the beginning of Holy Week through Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem.  We will begin our 6:30pm service outside in the front yard and process into our sacred space together. 

After our Palm Sunday Liturgy and dinner we will be turning two of the front flower beds into vegetable beds (and no, we are not killing any flowers, but we did move a few).  We won’t exactly become locavores overnight, but the squash and tomatoes will certainly help feed us during our Sunday meals in the fall.  The leftover vegetables will be taken to Trinity Central West End’s food pantry to be distributed. ...

Holy Week Schedule

Holy Week Schedule
Sometime Tuesday we will be painting a banner under the walkway (time tba).  If you are an artist or a good painter or even just want to hang out while other people paint, please stop by and see us!  The banner is to mark our Holy Week schedule and to invite others to join us. 
Wednesday- 8:30pm Tenebrae

The name Tenebrae (the Latin word for “darkness” or “shadows”) has for centuries been applied to the ancient monastic night and early morning services (Matins and Lauds) of the last three days of Holy Week, which in medieval times came to be celebrated on the preceding evenings. We celebrate Tenebrae on Wednesday to mark the entry into the Triduum.  The service provides an extended meditation upon, and a prelude to, the events in Jesus’ life between the Last Supper and the Resurrection.

Spring at the Rockwell House

Believe it or not, Palm Sunday is only in 8 days!  While Lent is usually long and tired, this year it seems that Lent has been short and surprisingly bright.  It may be due to the distracting and sometimes moody spring that we've been having in St. Louis.  Beautiful days of bright warm skies followed by 4 inches of snow in late March!  By the way, where did March go?  And how did Lent go by so fast?  It never goes by quickly...
To wrap up our Lenten series "Spiritually Material" (after our Sunday evening worship during dinner), this Sunday we will be reading snippets from “Revolve,” a version of the bible that you may not be familiar with (pictured).  It is written and marketed for teenage girls and it's full of goodies like dating quizzes and questionnaires,...
