Online worship, music and learning inspired by Celtic music, prayers and traditions
In spring 2020, St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church in Dahlonega began planning a Celtic Worship Service, envisioning parishioners, local residents, college students, retirees, and visitors gathering on Sunday evenings once a month. The casual worship service would feature live musicians playing Celtic and traditional Appalachian music, readings of the Psalms, a meditative lighting of the candles, a brief reflection and the offering of communion. Obviously the pandemic changed everything. We look forward to launching this in-person service when it is safe to do so. Until we are able to gather in person, please join us for our online offerings.
Sign up for Lenten Daily Prayer by February 16
Do you want support as you seek to pray? Are you willing to support others? Consider being part of the Lenten Daily Prayer Group. Individually we will use the book “Celtic Benediction” by John Phillip Newell daily and then gather Tuesday evenings on Zoom as a group to share our experiences. We chose this book because it draws on the poetry and the celebration of nature and natural rhythms characteristic of Celtic Spirituality. The prayers are simple, beautiful, and do not require an enormous commitment of time.
Group Meetings are February 23, March 2, 9, 16 and 23 from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Sign up by February 16 to receive a copy of the book that we will provide to you. To learn more and sign up go to https://bit.ly/lentendailyprayer. Zoom details will be sent after you sign up. If you have any questions, please email or call Father John at 706-864-5423.
