Have you ever joined us at our weekly Celtic Eucharist on Thursday evenings? With the flu season running rampant we have the perfect service planned to honor the Feast of Saint Blaise, the patron of those who are sick, at our Celtic Eucharist this Thursday, February 1st at 6:00pm.
This flu season has been one of the worst on record in recent years. Getting sick takes a toll on us both physically and mentally. Prayer and meditation can have healing properties for your mind that help keep sickness at bay. Our Celtic Eucharist is a meditative worship experience held every
Thursday at 6:00pm and lasts about half an hour.
Prior to priesthood, Saint Blaise was a physician, allowing him to become a healer of body and soul, resulting in the Blessing of the Throats. This is an ancient blessing that became very popular in the Middle Ages. Perhaps in this epidemic flu season it’s a good time to dust it off and offer it to our parishioners!
Before the Eucharist begins, worshipers are invited to light a candle at the foot of the Christ the Teacher icon.
