Worship, music and learning inspired by Celtic music, prayers and traditions

The last Sunday of every month at 7:00 p.m., St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church welcomes everyone — from parishioners to local residents, college students, retirees, and visitors to N. Georgia — to a 45-minute Celtic Worship Service in Dahlonega. The casual service features live musicians playing Celtic and traditional Appalachian music, readings of the Psalms, a meditative lighting of the candles, a brief reflection and friendly hospitality afterward. The service is behind the church in the garden, weather permitting. On rainy, chilly or sweltering evenings, we are inside.

Please join the Celtic Book Group to discuss The Book of Creation: An Introduction to Celtic Spirituality by John P. Newell. Books are provided at no charge (donations accepted). Father John and the Rev. Susan Lupo will lead the weekly conversation from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m., September 14 – October 26. We will gather in a hybrid format, both in person and on Zoom.

We will gather in the garden for Vespers again on Sunday, October 24, at 7:00 p.m. The garden will be lit as darkness comes sooner. Watch the Weekly E-News for more details. We look forward to seeing you!

Dates in 2021: June 27, July 25, August 29, September 26 and October 24. We will not gather in November or December 2021.
