Noonday Prayer on Facebook Live During Advent

St. Paul’s will offer Noonday Prayer services Monday through Friday throughout Advent, December 3 through 21. The services, which typically last five or six minutes, will be held in the chapel and live-streamed on the church’s Facebook group page so that all may pray together in person, by phone, tablet or computer. Each day’s liturgy will be posted so those who miss the noon live-stream can pray at their convenience.

If you have a Facebook account and are following the page posts as a member of the church’s group, the posts should appear in your feed at noon on weekdays throughout Advent. Recordings of the live posts will remain on the page and can be seen by logging into your account and accessing the page.

All are welcome to attend the services in person as well.

An Order of Service for Noonday is found in the Daily Office section of The Book of Common Prayer on pages 103 to 107.

More information about An Order of Service for Noonday is posted on the web site for The Episcopal Church.

St. Thomas Day Service

On Wednesday, December 20, at 5:30 p.m. in the chapel, St. Paul’s will offer a special service of Holy Eucharist, St. Thomas Day:
A Service of Light and Hope. 

The Christmas holidays may bring joy, but for many people, the season draws out doubt, depression and loss.  The day we celebrate the feast of St. Thomas the Apostle, the doubter, is a good time to remember that we are not alone and to draw together toward the light of Christ.

All are welcome to join us for worship and a time to meditate on God’s love even while we might feel disconnected from the season’s holiday cheer.
