  • About Us | Gracesheboygandraft

    About Us “…when Christ is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is.” (1 John 3:2) ​ Our worship and music embrace all our senses, our emotion, and our energy. We do this for ourselves, of course. But above all, we offer our full selves like this to God because this delights God. What better life together is there? So, we sit, kneel, stand, and genuflect. We chant, sing, speak, and listen. We might cross our bodies, hearts, and mouths. We gladly receive the opportunities for silence and tranquility that our worship brings. Above all we listen, pray, and adore. ​ Nothing is mandatory or compulsory. We each participate as we each wish, how and when we each feel called. Together, in our worship, we learn to adore and to glimpse a world bigger and greater and more beautiful than seems possible. ​ This worship is best understood by being experienced. So come and see all this brought to life on a typical Sunday morning. Feel free to ask a priest or usher any question you wish. Subscribe to our newsletter, The Angelus Thanks for submitting!

  • All Saints Chapel | Gracesheboygandraft

    All Saints Chapel In the late 1930s, Episcopalians on holiday at Elkhart Lake engaged a room at Sharpe’s Resort to serve as a Liturgical Center, which was known as St. Francis by the Lake. Eventually, the building at Sharpe’s Resort housing the Liturgical Center was razed and services were suspended during World War II. Directly following the war, a band room in a public school was implemented for liturgical purposes. In March of 1951, with funds provided by the Hayssen Foundation, land was purchased and a chapel was constructed. Satre and Senescall of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, associated with Richard Phillip of Milwaukee served as the architects. ​ The building is reminiscent of an English country church, and is substantially built with walls of native fieldstone and partially plastered. The altar is also constructed from native stone, with a foundation five feet below the chapel floor. The stained glass windows depict biblical scenes with relevance to the chapel's rural setting, including: St. Genevieve, patron saint of farm animals; St. Isadore, patron saint of the farmer and St. Hubertus, patron saint of the hunter. A service was held in the chapel on Thanksgiving Day, 1951, without a roof on the building. Eventually, it was named All Saints Chapel. In the summer of 1952, June, July, and August services were held and the tradition of summer services continues to this day. The chapel has been served by retired and vacationing clergy since it opened its doors and is visited yearly by the Bishop of the Diocese of Fond Du Lac. The chapel seats 48. ​ On October 26th, 1991, the chapel was landmarked by Sheboygan County Landmarks, Ltd. An open invitation stands to worship here on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM, Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend.

  • Christian Formation | Gracesheboygandraft

    “…until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:13) We don’t say “education” here. We say “formation.” Formation is God shaping us into the real human beings we were made to be, and that Jesus Christ came to make possible through his self-giving love, through sacrament, prayer practices, learning, mutual support, and service for the life of the world. In Christ, God became human so that we might finally become truly human and share fully in the life of God. In groups that meet regularly, we learn spiritual and prayer practices to encounter each other in love, and to encounter the Spirit of God. We ponder and explore the Holy Bible as the ancient Word of God that is timelessly alive today. We go deep in our Tradition, to receive wisdom from holy ancestors who ground and guide us for the life we live today.
