In commemoration of the Feast of St. Aidan, this Sunday we will be celebrating a Celtic Eucharist, with parts that are both ancient and modern. A prayer by St. Columba forms the opening sentences, and the creed is attributed to St. Patrick.
Hymns for the Celtic Eucharist will be sung to Irish melodies. The “Gloria in Excelsis” and “Sanctus” will be from the “Celtic Mass,” written by St. Aidan’s parish musician Stephen Wiggin, and is also based on Celtic music.
St. Aidan’s hosted a community dinner at Centre Street Congregational Church on Thursday, June 22.
It was a good evening and a definite parish outreach by St. Aidan’s to the community. The food was excellent and greatly appreciated.
A new church directory is available. It is convenient, booklet size with updated information. If you have not picked yours up, please do so! They are available at the Church.
