7.00 p.m. Evening Prayer and Rector’s Class: The Christian Understanding of Sin.
In the midst of intense transitions, we are seeking at St. Mary’s to find rhythms that will allow us to gather for worship that are full of grace, making adjustments as necessary.
In addition to week day Morning and Evening Prayer, with its emphasis on the contemplative praying of the Psalms and reading of Scripture, we have introduced week day celebrations of the Holy Communion on Holy Days, which are similarly quiet, but joyful. I look forward to being able to offer an additional Communion service during the week.
The main service this Sunday at 10.30 a.m. will be Morning Prayer with hymns and sermon, where the focus is on teaching, prayer, and praise, and which is shared with all parishioners via e mail.
For those earnestly desiring the Holy Communion, there will be a short said service at 8.30 a.m.
- When you enter the church please use the side aisles to go to your pew.
- When you leave the church please go down the center aisle. We are asking those sitting in the pews on the north side of the church to exit first and go out the 15th Avenue door. Then those sitting in the pews on the south side of the church to exit and go out the Montague Street door.
- If you would like to join in with singing you must wear a mask. The exception to this is for leaders of the service who are required to have an increased distance between themselves and the congregation.
- Please go up the center aisle if you are going for communion. There is hand sanitizer at the front of the pews for you to use. Please return to your pew by the side aisles.
We realize there are many guidelines that have been put in place which we are required to follow in order to have an in person worship service. We pray it will not detract from your desire to be here and worship the Lord. We appreciate you helping us to follow these rules. May God bless you today and every day for His mercies are new every morning.
