Welcome in the name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit!
We invite you to worship the Lord with us at Old St. Mary's Catholic Church located at 828 O Street, Sanger, CA 93657 (our office mailing address is: 284 N. Fordham Ave., Fresno, CA 93727).
We gather as the Body of Christ every Sunday morning at 9:30am to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness with a celebration of Holy Communion (also known as The Holy Eucharist, The Mass, The Lords Supper, and The Divine Liturgy). This service includes four lessons of Holy Scripture, a sermon, corporate and private prayers, and singing of hymns and praise songs. This service lasts about an hour and a half and is followed by Coffee Fellowship. All baptized Christians who are prepared to receive the precious Body and Blood of Christ are welcome to receive Holy Communion.
Fridays during Advent we offer Evening Prayer service (also known as Evensong and/or Vespers) in the Church at 7:30pm.
Fridays during Lent we join St. Mary's Catholic Church in The Way of the Cross in the church at 7:00pm.
Please let us know if you are sick or going in the hospital, if you are in need of counseling, or if you would like Fr. Michael to visit and/or bless your home and/or your pets.
If you would like information about being received into the Anglican Church, or about the Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Communion, Confirmation, Reconciliation of a Penitent (Confession), Holy Matrimony, Holy Orders, Holy Unction (Anointing of the Sick); or if you have questions about Christian Burial, please contact us at (559) 255-4883. We promise to respond to you as quickly as possible!
