We are celebrating Evening Prayer on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm during Lent. This will in place of the Wednesday Evening Celtic Prayer Service through March 24.
Evening Prayer is a beautiful and moving experience of images of light and darkness.
It quiets the soul for a peaceful night. With two hymns, scripture readings, and a brief homily, we lift our thoughts to God.
Slow down your week mid-way with Wednesday Evening Prayer (in person or online). The service will be streamed live on Facebook and posted to our Website following the service.
O gracious light,
pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!
Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of Life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.
The Evening Prayer Service is based on the prayers of the Iona Abbey Worship, Iona being the island off the west coast of Scotland,
a place of ancient Celtic Spirituality and a cradle of Christianity in Scotland.
The service on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm is attended by faithful Christians seeking a mid-week spiritual devotion and usually
numbers between 4 and 9 participants. It is 20 minutes of quiet prayer, the three daily Lectionary readings plus Psalm, a homily
of the "Saint for the Day" listed in Holy Women Holy Men, and Prayer Requests.
The service is followed by fellowship in the Parish Hall. We enjoy conversation and refreshments.
Please join us for evening Prayer on Wednesday nights. It is an excellent discipline no matter the season of the Church calendar
