Please join us for our Service of Holy Eucharist on Sunday November 21 at 11:00 am when we also celebrate the Feast of Christ the King. This is a joint service with our Old Catholic brothers and sisters at their church (on the corner of Schwalbacher Str./Platter Strasse. See Google Maps here). We have had a Full Communion agreement with the Old Catholic Church since 1931. The Rev. Robert Vukovic will be preaching, Rev. Klaus Rudershausen celebrating and I will be assisting.
Please note that there will be no Livestream this week as the Friedenskirche does not have the technical equipment/internet capability.
On Monday, November 29 at 5 pm we have our annual AIDS memorial service together with the AIDS-Hilfe Wiesbaden.
Next Sunday is the First Sunday in Advent. We will bless the Advent Wreath and light the first of the four candles.
Please also note that a medical mask (surgical, FFP2 or DIN KN95/N95) must be worn until you take your place.
If you want to include prayers for yourself or another during the Prayers of the People at any of our services, please send me an email
